Lagos danfo buses now use gas instead of petrol – photos – car talk (3) – nigeria m gasbuddy

Let me enlighten people about this. The gas in use is called compressed natural gas. CNG. It is not lpg, lpg liquified natural gas is the common butane gas used for cooking and its in liquid form. Cng is dry gas with moisture content at all.

Natural gas is what turbines used in generating electricity both PHCN gencos, redemption camp winners canaanland etc.. It is the cleanest fossil fuel on earth this gas is very very safe and there is no hazard of explosion like many of you think. The cylinders you see are extremely thicker than your normal cooking gas cylinders. About 20 mm thick. Even if cases of a very fatal accident, there is no damage to the cylinder. IN Nigeria Nipco and green gas started converting vehicles to run on both natural gas or petrol depending on which on which one is availabe. There ia a button to switch to either petrol or gas. The project started in benin and more than 4000 vehicles run on natural gas in nigeria( Benin and lagos) even some brt buses and they have been running for over 7 years in nigeria alone.

Doowegas and THLD GROUP are ready to boost Autogas vehicles conversion, sales and training centres across the country, as both companies have signed a collaboration agreement to promote LPG in transport in Nigeria. Doowegas currently owns over 15 retail Autogas stations in Lagos, while THLD AUTOGAS SYSTEMS BY STAG is one of the leading distributors of LPG fuel technologies.

This partnership is another example of both company’s commitment to the environment, to develop a more sustainable service and to encourage the use of alternative fuels that protect the air quality in cities around the world. Through this agreement, the two groups will be also able to collaborate in the Nigerian market to develop incentives for the introduction and expansion of Autogas vehicles, through their respective refuelling station and dealer networks.

“THLD Group has come to Nigeria at the right time. The present economic recession has necessitated Nigerians to look for alternative but cheaper means of generating power via generator sets and fuelling of their vehicles. There is no better time than now for Nigerians vis-à-vis the governments and corporate bodies to embrace this innovation,” said Olajuwan Olusegun, CEO and managing director of THLD Group.

Meanwhile, Doowegas is also committed to contributing and progressing towards more sustainable energy models. Besides obtaining cost savings, by improving energy efficiency and promoting renewable energies, the company seeks to minimise the environmental impact, especially reducing emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs).

LPG is not only used for cooking. Guy, both CNG and LPG can be used to power or fuel cars. It depends on the type of conversion kit, used in your vehicle. In Lagos, there are more stations selling LPG autogas, than CNG autogas. Secondly, it is easier to transport LPG autogas from the gas depot using gas haulage trucks, than it is to transport CNG autogas from a depot/CNG mother station to a retail station, using specialised cascades.

It is cheaper, and more environmentally friendly to run your cars on autogas than petrol. The conversion process, turns your vehicle into a dual-fuel one, which means you can either use petrol or gas to fuel the car. In times of fuel scarcity, this is always a good thing, because instead of queuing at petrol stations for ages, you can simply switch to gas and go on your way. For some conversion kits however, you still need to have a small quantity of petrol in your tank, before you can switch over to gas, in order to power your vehicle.

AutoReportNG was in Mowe-Ibafo a city in Ogun state and we decided to board a bus at Ketu, before boarding the bus we noticed some strange object like a gas tank under the seat but just as Lagos drivers can do anything to their vehicles, we overlook it as part of those things. The commercial bus decided to stop at a "Filling Station" to top up his tank, but this one seems to be irregular as the nozzle and the way it was sold was quite different from the regular petrol station. That was when the curiosity in us began to manifest, we asked the driver what’s going on why is he buying gas instead of buying petrol, the driver just smiled.

We were able to engage the driver as we journey along the trip and the driver was kind enough to explain the modalities, according to him, when the problem of fuel and scarcity is about making them go out of business, they think of a smart way to operate and also think of spending less. According to our findings, the vehicle uses an injector engine and with a gas of 900 naira, the driver said he can go from Lagos to Mowe (through and fro) 3 times even when there is traffic. That is very very cheap and cost effective! Imagine how much he will be making in a day just using gas only.

Let’s do the maths a bit, a full bus take 15 passengers and they charged 200 per passenger ((200 * 15) * 2) that is in a trip (through and fro), he will make 6000 naira, imagine going 3 times, that is 18000 using 900 naira gas. Imagine if he goes 10 times in a day, you can imagine.

Thanks for the post and your enormous interest in Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) as a vehicular fuel.Actually this project began in Benin city,few years ago.Picture you posted showed a bus which was converted to run on CNG about 4 years ago.It is now a old bus and the CNG system is still working properly.Meanwhile,this shows the level of ruggedness of the CNG Cylinder and how safe the system is in extreme conditions.
