Equipped with a bi-fuel engine, light vehicles can alternate between natural gas and gasoline while travelling. This configuration is perfect for transporting people and urban deliveries. Vehicles with bi-fuel engines mean the same reliability as vehicles running only on gasoline, but they are cleaner, more energy-efficient, and less costly.
Chart comparing annual fuel costs1 for a truck consuming an average of 34.1 liters of diesel per 100 km. Costs of natural gas correspond to a 100% CNG engine and costs of propane correspond to a hybrid engine (30% propane and 70% diesel). This calculation is based on an annual mileage of 80,000 kilometers.
The environmental benefits of a bi-fuel engine are considerable. When a vehicle runs on natural gas, greenhouse emissions are reduced by as much as 25%, SO2 emissions by as much as 99%, NOx emissions by as much as 17% and fine particulate emissions by as much as 97%. These numbers don’t lie; blue is better.
Give yourself greater independence on the road when transporting people or making deliveries. Vehicles with bi-fuel engines can still run on gasoline while offering greater operational flexibility.
Save more with grants from the Écocamionnage provincial government program. It provides financial assistance to reduce the acquisition cost of natural gas vehicles. More reason to switch to blue!
