Yes my dear readers, it is one of the best ways to beat the fuel hike!
Don’t take my word for it, take it from an experienced user mr lim.
In the last two years alone, he has saved about $7,000 - the equivalent of what an average car owner spends on fuel in about 18months. The reason his van is so fuel-efficient: Compressed Natural Gas(CNG).
The 47-year-old businessman holds the possible distinction of being the first Singaporean here to have converted his car so that it runs on CNG instead of petrol.
He did it in March 2006 when CNG was still an unfamiliar acronym to many motorists.
So while drivers here talk about getting cheap petrol in Johor, Mr Lim is happily getting his full tank refuels at
One kg of CNG is equivalent to around 1.1 litres of petrol.
The same amount in petrol costs between $2.15 and $2.30, depending on the grade.
Mr Lim, who saves 'at least half of what others are paying' using CNG compared to petrol, said: 'To me, CNG stands for 'cheap and good'.'
Dear readers, if you concerned about safety and leaks of gas, don’t worry , CNG is safer then petrol. If you like to know more details, please read my article:
