Why Nigerians Should Consider CNG in Place of PMS for Cars

The sharp increase in price of premium motor spirit from N185 to an average of N500 per litre has increased the running cost for car owners and may force a reduction of their daily mileage

With the sharp rise in PMS prices, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) vehicles have become more popular in India. In fact, a number of automakers now include factory-installed CNG kits with their vehicles. In addition to being more affordable, CNG is also a more environmentally friendly fuel than conventional fuel because it emits fewer greenhouse gases.

While this is commendable , it has become crucial for automobile owners, especially PMS driven cars to consider conversion to save cost

Therefore, the practical option in the current situation, where electric cars have a high price tag, are CNG vehicles.
