CNG is a clean-burning domestically-produced gas that is compressed for use in vehicles that are specially manufactured or converted to run on the fuel. The overall performance of vehicles that run on natural gas is similar to that of vehicles that run on gas or diesel, but the driving range tends to be lower.
