Due to environmental protection and changes in oil prices, countries are exploring the use of new fuels such as clean fuels and biofuels. There are many advantages to using CNG and LPG as fuel for automobiles. Because the fuel is cleaner, the engine life is extended, the cost of use is lower, the maintenance cycle is longer, the oil replacement cycle is longer, and the initial modification is more convenient, but the CNG/LPG fuel is used. The system has high working pressure and its related safety standards are relatively high. The fuel system and components are required to be compulsory certification in many countries and regions. The operating vehicles need annual inspection and regular testing is required during operation.
