Natural gas 101: LNG or CNG?

Jason Cannon July 8, 2013

The largest obstacle today for fleets interested in adopting – or at least evaluating – a natural gas truck is the nation’s lack of infrastructure.

CCJ Executive Editor Jack Roberts take a look at comparing compresses and liquified natural gases in this report.

For many fleets, the differences in the two fuels can seem daunting, leading to fears that they will select a “losing” technology – much the same way that early VCR buyers were forced to choose between VHS and Beta tape formats, Roberts writes.

The good news is that both fuel types are here to stay; the challenge is selecting the correct fuel type for the application.
