Natural Gas Vehicles


Natural-gas vehicles use the same basic principles as gasoline-powered vehicles. In other words, the fuel (natural gas in this case) is mixed with air in the cylinder of a four-stroke engine and then ignited by a spark plug to move a piston up and down.

Although there are some differences between natural gas and gasoline in terms of flammability and ignition temperatures, NGVs themselves operate on the same fundamental concepts as gasoline-powered vehicles.

However, some modifications are required to make an NGV work efficiently. These changes are primarily in the fuel storage tank, the engine and the chassis.

Natural gas vehicles are utilised for private use, in trucking fleets and also comprise part of the public transport system in the ACT, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.
