There are distinctive energy contents with LPG and Natural Gas, they are the same, but they are different in many ways (Hahn). LPG and Natural Gas are broadly accessible and used for thousands of applications (Hahn). There are two core distinctions in the way that natural gas (Methane) and LPG (Propane) are burnt (Hahn). CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) is a readily substitution of petrol that is made by compressing natural gas (Hahn). Consisting mostly of methane, CNG is odorless, colorless and tasteless (Sirdah, Rahma). CNG is produced from domestically drilled natural gas wells or in conjunction with crude oil production (Sirdah, Rahma). CNG Methane gas can be stored at high pressure; typically over 200 bars (Hahn). LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) The term LPG encompasses more than one kind of gas (Hahn). There are a number of hydrocarbon gases that fall into the type of LPG (Hahn). Their common trait is that they can be compacted into a liquid low pressures (Hahn). The first difference are in LPG is the energy content, less gas is required to produce the same amount of heat because of a higher calorific value, or energy content (Hahn). The second difference is LPG requires more oxygen to gas ratio for proper ignition (Hahn).
Not only is running an LPG car economical, it is also a cleaner burning fuel than petrol, so engine life is extended and greenhouse emissions reduced (Sirdah, Rahma). Natural Gas (Methane) Natural gas is primarily Methane (Sirdah, Rahma). CNG
