Fuelling with CNG

We have talked about reducing emissions from transport using gmobility as a fuel.

Here, we will examine how Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) can be used to fuel transport – from our private cars, all the way up to buses and trucks.

This is, indeed, one of the main benefits of CNG: its versatility when is comes to the variety of transport modes it can fuel.

In the sections below, you will find answers to some of the more commonly asked questions when it comes to CNG and how it could be effectively used in transport today.

CNG cars offer a lot of autonomy on the road – with even the smallest CNG tanks you can travel hundreds of kilometers. Fueling stations are already very common across Europe and therefore one is almost always nearby. 

But what happens if you somehow forgot to fuel your car and have run out of CNG?

In that respect, a CNG car is just like any other car – once the fuel is out, the vehicle wouldn’t be able to run any more, however, there is an added benefit that is present on CNG cars – all of them have a petrol tank too that is used to turn the engine on (after which, the car switched automatically to CNG) but it doubles as a backup to CNG.

So, in the case you run out of it, use the petrol tank to get to the nearest station and fill in there.

NGVA Europe has an accurate and up-to-date interactive map of all CNG (and LNG if you are interested in heavy-duty vehicles) stations across Europe. 

This is probably one of the most frequently asked questions by people considering buying a CNG car. Potential customers want to know where they would be able to fuel in their own area but also whether they can easily plan trips from one place to another.

Now everybody can see the stations in all of Europe, which NGVA Europe has made into a publicly available map updated daily

In short, this is a map of CNG and LNG fuelling stations across Europe. It provides real-time information on the development of natural gas fuelling stations in Europe. 

The map is continuously updated and improved to reflect the current situation on the number of CNG and LNG filling stations in operation or planned.

The answer to this question is a rather short one. 

Unlike other alternative technologies, CNG is readily available and an average car could be fuelled for the same amount of time as a conventional petrol or diesel car. The whole refueling process takes around 4 minutes.
