Is using compressed natural gas harmful to the engine?
No, the opposite is generally the case. Using compressed natural gas (CNG) as fuel can actually extend the life of an engine. The extended life is due to the cleaner combustion of CNG versus liquid gasoline and diesel fuels, and the fact that no carbon is generated during combustion of CNG. Additionally, the engine components and oil are not subject to the contamination often produced by gasoline or diesel.
