CNG is a cleaner fuel than diesel, used currently in many cities and long-distance transport across the country. It contains mostly methane, compressed to 80 atmospheres. CNG also works out cheaper (one-third) than diesel in long run because of stable price. Moreover, it is readily available, its carcinogenic potential is lesser, it cannot be adulterated and gives higher mileage i.e. 35-40 km per kg.
