A man who uses CNG as fuel for his car said he was not worried when the price of petroleum motor spirit (PMS) went up.

He said all he did was laugh when he saw the news that the price of PMS had gone up because he uses CNG as fuel.

Yusuf said the tank used to store CNG was bulletproof and could not just catch fire if there was a leakage.

He said:

"For the 65 litres, it can take up to 150km of distance travelled. If you are buying it, it is about N3450 because the price for the gas is N230 per cubic meter. So if you are filling up that 65 litre, which is 15 cubic meters, it is going to cost you a total of N3450, and it is going to take for a distance covered of 150km."

The video was posted in July 2023 at a time when PMS prices had just gone up in Nigeria, and drivers searched for alternative sources of fuel.

Currently, there are reports that CNG is sold at N200 per cubic meter in some filling stations.

"This is where the government should subsidize installation for all public transport vehicles. This is where palliative should go."

@b'Calous said:

"It's been around for a while, but the challenges are still enormous. If a 15kg cover 150km/hr, how do I refill lets say I'm traveling from abuja to Gombe?"
