Natural Gas

 

 

Different blends used by Tennessee fleets: CNG, LNG, RNG.

Natural gas, a domestically produced gaseous fuel, is readily available through our country’s utility infrastructure. This alternative fuel must be compressed or liquefied for use in vehicles.

Propane

Most popular propane vehicles in Tennessee: Police cars, work trucks and landscaping mowers.

Propane is a gas at normal temperatures and pressures but is stored under moderate pressure (150-200 psi) where it becomes a liquid. It is a clean-burning fuel, has a high energy density, and is readily available in the US.
