Natural gas is domestically produced and available throughout the U.S. It is also clean-burning and produces significantly fewer harmful emissions than reformulated gasoline or diesel when used in natural gas vehicles.
In addition, commercially available medium- and heavy-duty natural gas engines have demonstrated significant reductions of carbon monoxide (CO), particulate matter, and nitrogen oxides (NOx), relative to commercial diesel engines.
Natural gas can either be stored on-board a vehicle as compressed natural gas (CNG) or as liquefied natural gas (LNG). Natural gas can also be blended with hydrogen.
