Overview - Natural gas is a domestically produced gaseous fuel, readily available through the utility infrastructure. This clean-burning alternative fuel can be used in vehicles as either compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG).
Basics - Natural gas is an odorless, nontoxic, gaseous mixture of hydrocarbons—predominantly methane (CH4). It accounts for about a quarter of the energy used in the United States.
Benefits and Considerations - Explore the benefits and considerations of using natural gas as a vehicle fuel.
Stations - Locate natural gas fueling stations in your area and learn about natural gas fueling infrastructure.
Vehicles – Learn about natural gas vehicles and find information about vehicle availability, conversions, emissions, maintenance, and safety.
