Get this from a library. Enhancing natural gas vehicle technology: Natural Gas Vehicle Challenge. [James E Smith; Kenneth E Vance; Society of Automotive Engineers.;] -- Results of a research and design competition to develop natural gas-powered light-duty trucks, the Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) Challenge held May June 1,in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Natural gas is a vital component of the world's supply of energy and an important source of many bulk chemicals and speciality chemicals. It is one of the cleanest, safest, and most useful of all energy sources, and helps to meet the world's rising demand for cleaner energy into the future.

However, exploring, producing and bringing gas to the user or converting gas into desired Cited by: A natural gas vehicle (NGV) is an alternative fuel vehicle that uses compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG).Natural gas vehicles should not be confused with autogas vehicles powered by liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), mainly propane, which is a fuel with a fundamentally different composition.

In a natural gas powered vehicle, energy is released by combustion of. As a vehicle fuel, natural gas holds considerable promise but faces a number of challenges.

Overcoming those challenges is the goal of recent funding granted by the U.S. Department of Energy for a. Find a public CNG station in your area to refuel your natural gas vehicle.

Natural Gas Vehicles for Consumers. Cut down on time spent in traffic, reduce your carbon footprint and lower your fuel costs with a natural gas vehicle. Natural Gas Vehicle Options. Learn about your options for buying or converting a new or used natural gas vehicle. In addition, natural gas vehicles are competing with a dominant incumbent technology--gasoline vehicles--which enjoys significant advantages in consumer acceptance, capital requirement, and political support.

Furthermore, the current low price and abundant supply of petroleum have reduced considerably the financial benefits for using natural Size: 8MB. How Do Natural Gas Vehicles Work. Compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles operate much like gasoline-powered vehicles with spark-ignited internal combustion engines.

The engine functions the same way as a gasoline engine. Natural gas is stored in a fuel tank, or cylinder, typically at the back of the vehicle. Natural Gas Vehicle Technology Forum Summary.

Approximately 80 people attended the Natural Gas Vehicle Technology Forum (NGVTF) meeting in Diamond Bar, California, on OctoberThe meeting featured a technology exchange between natural gas vehicle (NGV) stakeholders, government, and industry research and development partners.

The global automotive natural gas vehicle (NGV) market demand was estimated at 24, thousand units in It is expected to exhibit a CAGR of % during the forecast period. 24 million natural-gas vehicles in use worldwide, including aboutin the U.S.

The future of the natural gas vehicle market in an era of cheap diesel fuel and gasoline was a headline topic at last week’s NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

A record number of fleet owners and managers, OEM reps, equipment suppliers, government delegates and other industry professionals turned up to learn the latest.

Engine Technology Because Natural Gas is a ‘simple’ yet high octane fuel it produces far fewer emissions than other fuels and combusts efficiently. The efficiency and emissions of the engine vary depending on the combustion and injection methods used.

Incremental costs to purchase a new natural gas vehicle or to convert an existing vehicle can range from $10, to $20, for light duty cars and trucks.

For heavy duty trucks, the costs can start at $50, and easily exceed $, Natural gas vehicles or NGVs are an alternative fuel vehicle that use natural gas as fuel rather than the typical gasoline or alternative vehicles include fuel cell vehicles and electric vehicles.

NGVs were first manufactured in United States during the s. They were used during World War II in Europe and interest for these vehicles rose during the early s. Natural Gas Vehicles [John G.
