Is compressed natural gas safe?
Absolutely! The fuel cylinders that hold the compressed natural gas (CNG) are significantly stronger than gasoline tanks. These cylinders undergo thorough impact and bonfire testing, and meet or exceed U.S. Department of Transportation safety standards. Additionally, in the unlikely event of a gas leak, CNG will not form combustible pools on the ground as other fuels do. Because CNG is lighter than air, it will rise and dissipate if released. CNG is the same chemical compound as the natural gas that many homeowners use to cook their meals and heat their homes.
