  • 75% reduction in carbon monoxide emissions*
  • 55% reduction in volatile organic compounds*
  • 50% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions*
  • Up to 30% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions*
  • Environmental friendly regardless of energy used to supply the power grid
  • A "life of vehicle" storage system
  • The convenience and affordability of private fueling

Advantages of the bi-fuel PHANGV®

  • Bi-fuel light to medium duty vehicle platform
  • Requires only a conventional internal combustion engine
  • Flexible capacity depending on vehicle (e.g. 4.5 GGE (gasoline gallon equivalent) of natural gas at 900psi for a passenger car; 10 GGE for a pick-up truck)
  • 4.5 GGE provides a range of 120 miles (on a 30 mpg platform; 90% capacity utilization)
  • Total storage system weight (including the natural gas) 53 lbs. per GGE
  • Estimated to cost less that US$5,000 (including the engine set-up, when provided by an automotive OEM)

PHANGV® vs. PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) on large frame light-duty vehicle


There is a large consumer opportunity for the PHANGV®

2016 Natural Gas Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle Awareness/Perception Study

  • 40% are "very interested" in the natural gas hybrid concept
  • 74% are likely to seek more information
  • 64% see the concept solving many problems rather than creating a challenge
  • 58% would pay an additional US$5,000 for a natural gas hybrid
