Aggressively motivated to clean the environment and reduce American dependence on foreign oil, WorldCNG produces and installs quality natural gas fueling systems for automotive use. All WorldCNG conversions are certified by the Environmental Protection Agency and installed by certified automotive technicians. Tax breaks for businesses, rising fuel costs, and government mandates are giving individuals and businesses incentives to go green. WorldCNG supports this transition with superior product design, unparalleled service and a thirst for change.

CNG offers to the transportation market a safe and less costly fuel that is readily available, plentiful, and easy to use. Especially in urban areas, CNG is seen as the best alternative to polluting oil-based fuels, burning 70-90% cleaner than gasoline or diesel.
