Our world today is in a critical energy crisis. One of our major sources of energy today is based on fossil fuels, a source which is depleting, non-renewable and a major source of pollution to our environment. For countries in the tropics such as India, South East Asia, Mexico, and parts of the America Continent, our sun may offer an alternative energy source which is clean, renewable and able to sustain our energy needs for today, tomorrow and into our future. These countries typically enjoy 300 sunny days a year out of the total 365 – harnessing the power of our sun is a real and present possibility.
With the rising costs of petrol (gasoline) many vehicle owners are looking into alternatives with which they can replace petrol with. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) appears to be a viable alternative which promises to save cost, less polluting to the environment and can be easily retrofitted into existing vehicles. However most may still have concerns on safety, efficiency, miles per gallon and performance (power loss) of the vehicle once converted to CNG. What is the real deal in vehicles burning CNG (NGV). I hope to answer some of these questions in this article.
