Man Buys Cheap Fuel Priced at N150 Only, Fills His Car With N1900 at NIPCO Filling Station

  • A driver was happy that he had converted his car to be powered with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)
  • Instead of using premium motor spirit as fuel, the man took his car to the NIPCO filling station and filled it with CNG
  • The CNG cost him N150 per cubic meter, and he bought 12.74 cubic meters, thereby filling his car with only N1900

A driver who has converted his car to run with Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is now enjoying cheap fuel.

The man no longer runs his car with premium motor spirit but has installed a cylinder for CNG. Recall that the federal government ordered all filling stations nationwide to begin selling CNG.
