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.
