CNG - Compressed Natural Gas
Compressed Natural Gas is a substitute for petrol, diesel or LPG and is more environment friendly than these products. As far as the safety of its use is concerned, CNG is much safer than other fuels as it is lighter than air, and disperses quickly when released.
Advantages of CNG
