Here we share some info regarding the installation price, FAQ, and additional info about NGV. For those who are using NGV / NGV car owner please share your review about the NGV system fitted.

NGV INSTALLATION - SAVE FUEL WITH NATURAL GAS

NGV can save your fuel up to 70% with the low cost per litre which is now at RM0.68 per litre. This will reduce your car fuel consumption with NGV. A natural gas vehicle or NGV is an alternative fuel vehicle that uses compressed natural gas (CNG) or, less commonly, liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a clean alternative to other automobile fuels.

NGV INSTALLATION – SAVE FUEL WITH NATURAL GAS

The primary component of natural gas is methane (CH4), the shortest and lightest hydrocarbon molecule. It may also contain heavier gaseous hydrocarbons such as ethane (C2H6), propane (C3H8) and butane (C4H10), as well as other gases, in varying amounts. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a common contaminant, which must be removed prior to most uses.

NGV Conversion centres, which also benefited from the rush for lower running costs, also perform partial conversions to existing road vehicles, allowing them to run on both petrol or diesel and CNG with a cost varying between RM3,500 to RM5,000 for passenger cars.

Latest news regarding NGV in Malaysia :

46,000 Vehicles Using NGV In The Peninsula

KUALA LUMPUR, 13 June (Bernama) — The total number of vehicles using NGV is among the basic factors taken into consideration by the government for the building of an NGV station in the country.

The Deputy Minister of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism, Datuk Rohani Karim said at the moment, there were only 46,000 motor vehicles using NGV in Peninsular Malaysia.

“There must be vehicles with NGV engines before a station could be built,” she said when replying to question from Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing (BN-Bintulu) at Dewan Rakyat, here today.

Tiong had enquired on the readiness of petroleum companies to provide NGV stations in the effort to encourage usage of NGV as an alternative fuel.

Rohani said the cost of constructing an NGV station was higher than the cost of building a regular petrol station.

Rohani said due to the high cost of setting up an NGV station, Petronas was currently the only petroleum company in the retailing of NGV in the country.

“The building of an NGV station needs detailed study and it takes a long time to ensure the planning is comprehensive before construction could begin,” she said.

She said other infrastructural requirements for a NGV station included gas piping, location of the main station and petrol station, current market and suitability of the land such as the earth surface.

She also said in the promotion of NGV usage as an alternative fuel, Petronas was committed to have 164 NGV stations in operation nationwide as at May 2011.

“They include Selangor (66), Federal Territory (27), Johor (29), Negeri Sembilan (12), Pulau Pinang (4), Melaka (7), Kedah (8), Perak (8) and one each in Terengganu, Perlis and Pahang, ” she said.

In the meantime, she said there were 19 more stations under construction and eight more were under the site location suitability study covering Miri in Sarawak and Kota Kinabalu in Sabah.

Presently, NGV price in the country is the lowest at 68 sen per liter compared to the market price of RM1.48.
