In the present time, there is a lot of concern arising about the world and its health. Gone are the days when we had all the resources in abundance and we could utilize them in any manner. The present time demands us to consciously make decisions at the national and individual levels. If you think about our role at an individual level, our everyday transportation is one such thing that can bring a difference. So, is it wise to invest in CNG cars? Is it better for your pocket as well as the Earth? If we look at the most recent statistics it shows that in the period of April to September 2021, approximately 1,01,412 CNG cars were sold. This number will only rise in the coming future, as the demand for sustainable options are being welcomed and widely accepted in the world.

In this blog let us look at the top 5 reasons why one should invest in CNG to lead a cleaner, greener and better future for individuals and the earth.

Green Fuel

Compressed Natural Gas is also popularly known as Green Fuel as it does not consist of lead and sulphur character. As CNG is non-corrosive, it multiplies the longevity of spark plugs. With the absence of lead or benzene particles in CNG, the lead fouling of spark plugs, and the pollution chances of lead and benzene are easily eliminated.


Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is eco-friendly. CNG produces fewer hydrocarbons such as carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and other suspended particles. CNG also protects the environment by helping reduce the effects of global warming. Since the gas is non-toxic, non-corrosive, noncarcinogenic, it also improves public health. It must be noted that natural gas vehicles do emit methane which is one of the principal greenhouse gasses, but it is neutralized by the significant reduction in carbon-dioxide emissions.

Safe & Reliable

CNG is stored in spherical or cylindrical compressed natural gas tanks, which are quite strong and safe. In case of any emergency or accident, CNG will dissipate into the atmosphere quickly without any accumulation. CNG also is less likely to ignite on hot surfaces as it has a high auto-ignition temperature. It also has a narrow range of flammability which also makes it a safer and more reliable fuel.

Low-operational Cost

Natural gas is pocket-friendly when compared to other types of fuel. It can save up to 40% or more. The prices of natural gas are not even that volatile and there is stability for the long term. The savings that you save by opting for CNG can be used as an investment for other important things in life. There is also less wear and tear in engines as CNG burns completely, which also helps in saving the expensive costs of part replacements, oil changes, tune-ups, etc. It is also observed that the life of lubricating oils is also increased, as CNG does not contaminate and dilute the crankcase oil. Along with these factors is is also very convenient as when required CNG vehicles can run both on CNG and petrol. However, one should avoid as much as possible to switch to petrol.


Unlike fossil fuels, CNG is a natural gas and there is no chance of its depletion for decades to come. At present, there is a strategically planned network of CNG stations across India that is expanding day by day. IOAGPL has successfully inaugurated more than 175+ CNG Stations in India, making it easier for people to travel to different locations hassle-free.

These were the top 5 reasons why one should invest in CNG. CNG is a sustainable choice for you and the world. If you are convinced to invest in CNG, remember that you have agreed to invest in a cleaner, greener and better environment in India.
