• Developing CNG refueling infrastructure
• Natural gas vehicles can cost up to 40% more than equivalent gas vehicles
• Gas vehicle conversions to natural gas can cost up to $18K
• Shorter driving range
• Longer refueling time
• Greater weight of fuel tank
• Currently only on a limited number of vehicles
• Natural gas (NG) is plentiful in North America and relatively inexpensive
• NG produces 30% fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gas or diesel
• NG is safer, with a low chance of flammability
• Supply of NG is expected to exceed demand, keeping prices depressed
• Government push through environmental regulations, tax credits & incentives
• Using existing natural gas lines makes vehicle refueling at home easy
• NG engine availability is increasing
• NG vehicles offer longer vehicle life with less long-term expense

CNG, LNG, and LPG fuels are less expensive alternatives to traditional fuels and are used in more and more motor vehicles. These alternative fuels reduce carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbon vehicle exhaust emissions. Still, they are prone to the same types of contamination present in traditional fuels. Parker Hannifin employs dedicated teams who focus only on the fuel market to provide you with the best possible system solutions.
