CNG Safety

As with any fuel source, natural gas is flammable.

However, natural gas is widely considered a safe fuel as it's used on thousands of natural gas vehicles (NGV) worldwide. 

Natural gas is lighter than air meaning any leaking gases vent into the atmosphere. Natural gas also has a much higher combustion temperature than diesel.  It also requires a very specific air mix ratio (between 5 and 15%) to combust. All characteristics combined, natural gas will not combust in the case of an accident.

CNG storage cylinders are tested and certified by the Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), and ISO Standardizations.
