Difference Between NGV and LPG

NGV vs LPG

With the rising costs of fuel and gasoline, some countries are finding ways to efficiently get away from buying diesel and gas in order for their businesses and travel costs to save significant sums of money each year. Another reason is also to save Mother Earth from becoming too hot as the emissions from these cars everyday may contribute to the warming of the Earth by emitting too much carbon into the atmosphere.

In an attempt to do this, there are alternative ways in which we can actually convert vehicles into consuming natural gas which is more efficient and environmentally friendly. Let us try to differentiate NGV from LPG.

“NGV” stands for “Natural Gas Vehicle” while “LPG” stands for “Liquid Petroleum Gas.” NGV is also known as CNG or Compressed Natural Gas. In storing these gases, LPG is stored under a low pressure at 30 kg/sq. cm. While NGV is stored at 200 kg/sq. cm. Which means that the NGV tank’s pressure is stronger than for LPG. Since the tank pressure is stronger, NGV’s tank is also heavier than an LPG tank.

NGV is made up of natural gas while LPG is made up of propane and a small quantity of butane. NGV when refilled takes about 20 minutes compared to LPG which is shorter and faster. LPG is said to be kinder to your car’s engine than NGV thus it will have a longer lifespan than with NGV.

The installation of NGV is said to be more expensive than LPG. There are also fewer refilling stations for NGV than with LPG as of now in some countries. However, some government administrations are pushing for the use of NGV in their countries.
