    Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is basically composed of methane whereas Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a mixture of propane, butane and other chemicals.
    Another main is that CNG does not liquefy under high pressure. CNG remains a gas, unless it is cooled down to at least - 164°C. While on the other hand LPG changes to liquid when it is compressed with pressure or when it is cooled down. That is why , it is known as Liquefied petroleum gas.

    CNG exactly arrives from a gas field. The only process, which occasionally desires to be finished, is filtering the gas. But generally, the gas can be utilized as a fuel right away after the compression process. LPG, although, is an artificial product. It is a combination of the above-mentioned gases. Hence, these gases require to be combined, before they can be utilized as fuel.

    CNG has a larger part of Hydrogen and is thus lighter than air (this ascribe in detail makes CNG very safe: if there is a leak in the system installed , the gas will easily be vaporized to the atmosphere). LPG on the other hand is two times heavier than air. This gas is generally a by-product which builds up from the oil drilling as well as the refinement of oil.

    CNG whatsoever economical may be, always carries threat of high pressure cylinder in your vehicle in the same cabin with passenger seat.
