LNG’s energy density makes it an ideal alternative to diesel for long-haul trucks which can easily accommodate tanks for the fuel.
LNG is cheaper than diesel at around two thirds of the price, and is also less polluting.
Depending on the engine, vehicles running on LNG produce between 8 – 25% less Green House Gas Emissions than those fuelled by unleaded petrol or diesel.
Australia also has an abundant supply of natural gas, estimated to be the equivalent of 184 years of supply.
Increasing the use of LNG domestically, as an alternative to imported oil, will help improve Australia’s fuel security.
