Petrol, a burden? Try NGV


A Natural Gas vehicle is one that is powered by Natural Gas; either in compressed or liquefied form, rather than the traditional petrol or diesel fuel. These vehicles offer an extremely clean, safe and efficient alternative to traditional transportation. In Malaysia, this trend is on the rise, and is seen as a common option for many city taxis. Refueling stations are also on the rise, and are mainly operated by Petronas Berhad.

As on date the price of petrol in Malaysia is RM 1.92 per liter and the price of NGV Gas is RM 0.68. There is a clear difference of 65 % between the two fuels.

So,the simplest way to calculate the amount of money that you can save by converting your vehicle to NGV is to multiply the amount of money that you spend on petrol by 65 %.

For example ,if you spend around RM 500 on petrol every month, then you save RM 325 (500 x 65 %) per month on your fuel bill. For every year you save RM 3900 (325 x 12).

Unlike petrol, you need not replace your engine black oil very frequently. So you also save money on the oil cost when you run on NGV. You also save 25 % on the Road Tax !

Over 4 million vehicles around the world that are now using Natural gas. Being proven as safe, economical and clean source of fuel, the conversion of a petrol powered vehicle to NGV is a very simple procedure that takes 2 days (carburetor engines) to 1 week (for fuel injection V6 engines).

Make your move now. I dont want to promo any workshop, so go and google yourself and I’m sure you will found a suitable workshop. Now you can travel 200 KM with only RM8
