• Learn About Natural Gas

Natural Gas is a hydrocarbon mixture predominantly composed of methane (CH4). Lesser components of this gaseous mixture include ethane, propane, butane, nitrogen, helium, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and water vapor, which are removed prior to use.  It is a nontoxic, non-corrosive, non carcinogenic fuel with significantly less harmful tailpipe emissions.

A majority of natural gas is a fossil fuel that is drawn from wells or extracted in conjunction with crude oil production. Natural gas can also be mined from subsurface porous rock reservoirs through extraction processes, such as hydraulic fracturing. Natural gas from renewable sources (biogas) is an emerging fuel, produced from decaying organic materials (waste from plants, landfills, wastewater and livestock).

Natural Gas Laws and Incentives

State and federal governments enact laws and provide incentives to help build and maintain a market for natural gas fuel and vehicles.

Benefits and Considerations

Natural gas as an alternative fuel includes benefits including domestic availability, established distribution network, relatively low cost, and emissions reductions. 

How will it benefit my business?

The benefits of natural gas and propane autogas vehicles have been widely established and publicized. These include:

  • Reduced dependence on foreign oil(based on ample domestic supplies now and for the foreseeable future);
  • Better fuel price stability and reduced fuel costs in the long run;
  • Reduced tailpipe and well-to-wheel emissions (as compared to gasoline and diesel counterparts);
  • Reduced fuel and maintenance expenses, often leading to a lower TCO.
