As a fleet manager, your priorities include your workers, your projects, and how they affect the world around us. Converting your fleet to CNG gives you more control over and confidence in the most important spheres of your work life.
Having a CNG fleet allows you to worry less about your workers’ safety, both in the field and at your facility. Because it’s lighter than air, compressed natural gas dissipates if it’s spilled. Because CNG can’t combust like alternative fuels, it’s safer in a potential crash and prevents fires in jobsite spills.
CNG vehicles are quiet, allowing workers and pedestrians surrounding the trucks to hear each other and communicate better. Additionally, CNG vehicles produce less toxic fumes than diesel or propane trucks, meaning less sick days for workers.
Assurance of a Better Environment
Not only is the lack of pollutants from CNG vehicles beneficial to worker and pedestrian health, but it also benefits the environment. In heavy-duty trucks, CNG reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 23 percent, smog-producing pollutants by 90 percent, and hydrocarbon emissions by 50-70 percent. In terms of pollution reduction, one truck shifting from diesel fuel to CNG is equivalent to taking 325 cars off the road.
Certainty in Power
Loss of power in CNG vehicles may be a concern for fleet managers. However, this is uncommon and largely depends on your vehicle’s engine. Some drivers of CNG vehicles report a power loss of less than 10 percent, while others notice no loss in power at all.
As a fleet manager, less fuel and routine maintenance means more money in your pocket. Have more confidence and control over the safety, environmental contribution, vehicle power, and cost effectiveness of your fleet.
