Lower Lifecycle Costs
The low price of domestic natural gas means significant savings on fuel costs after your fleet conversion. Historically, the ration between the price of MCF of natural gas and a barrel of oil was 7 to 1, it has recently ranges between 17 and 22 to 1, with an energy equivalence of roughly 6 MCF to a barrel. This price difference is expected to persist and widen as America continues to tap into its abundant domestic gas supplies.
The cost of maintaining natural gas vehicles is the same or lower than of gasoline and diesel vehicles. Additionally, the favorable economic profile of NGVs is supplemented by a variety of federal and state tax credits. The vehicles are also quieter, with 80%-90% lower decibel levels compared to comparable diesel vehicles.
