Natural Gas Vehicles for Consumers
If you're thinking about buying a natural gas vehicle for personal use, there are a lot of great reasons to make the switch.
A Cheaper, Cleaner Option
NGVs perform like a conventional gasoline or diesel-powered vehicle in that they deliver similar horsepower ratings and burn a gaseous mixture of fuel and air in an engine. However, natural gas has the distinct advantage of already being in a gaseous state, which helps the engine run cleaner.
Carpool Lane Access
Fed up with busy Southern California traffic? Experience shorter commutes with single-occupant carpool lane access.
As the owner of a dedicated NGV, you may still be issued Clean Air Vehicle Stickers -popularly known as "white stickers." They entitle motorists to use High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV or carpool) lanes, even if you're driving alone!
