"I decided to start the conversion of vehicles into a hybrid system of petrol and CNG, where CNG is the primary fuel because it is actually very good for the ecosystem. It is a green gas that releases less carbon emission. Another reason is its economic benefit."

Converting your vehicle into CNG use

In an interview with TRT Afrika, Dave said the conversion of cars to CNG use in Nigeria depends on the type of technology used and the type of vehicle itself.

He explained that some modifications would need to be made to the vehicles when installing CNG. One of these is putting a high-pressure line that passes from the engine all the way to the trunk of the car, where the CNG is installed.

Dave said the high-pressure gas comes to the reducer, which reduces it and passes that reduced pressure to the injector rails.

The injector rails pass the gas through nozzles that would be drilled side by side with the original injector. An electronic control unit is also installed.
