CNG is an alternative to gasoline that’s made by compressing natural gas. It’s clean, affordable, abundant and American.
Compressed Natural Gas, commonly referred to as CNG, is natural gas that is compressed to high pressures so large volumes can be stored in small places, such as a vehicle’s fuel tank. Recent improvements in CNG technology coupled with the rise in gasoline prices are quickly making CNG a viable option for mainstream vehicle applications. CNG has been used for more than 50 years, and IGS CNG Services is committed to expanding its use as a clean, affordable, domestic fuel.
CNG vs. Propane
Compressed Natural Gas is a superior transportation fuel in both energy volume and cost. The price stability of CNG is also quite favorable to propane in both the short and long-term forecast.

Types of CNG Vehicles
Numerous manufacturers offer factory-built CNG trucks, step-vans, transit buses and school buses, but there are fewer options for consumers who need light-duty cars, vans and pickup trucks. However, the market is starting to turn as more CNG trucks and cars come to market. Outside of purchasing one of these vehicles, American consumers have two other options: converting their existing vehicles to run on natural gas or some consumers may have the option to convert their existing vehicle based on vehicle type and availability of an EPA certified kit.
