CNG- Compressed Natural Gas. Compressed Natural Gas   is a fossil fuel substitute for gasoline (petrol), diesel , or propane / LPG . Although its combustion does produce greenhouse gases , it is a more environmentally clean alternative to those fuels, and it is much safer than other fuels in the event of a spill (natural gas is lighter than air, and disperses quickly when released).

LPG-Liquified Petroleum Gas.Liquefied petroleum gas  is a flammable mixture of hydrocarbon gases used as a fuel in heating appliances and vehicles. It is increasingly used as an aerosol propellant and a refrigerant , replacing chlorofluorocarbons in an effort to reduce damage to the ozone layer .

thumbs up PLS!!
