As supplies of crude oil diminish and prices rise substantially as the infrastructure for extraction, processing and transport of oil becomes less dependable and less secure, as oil price fluctuations become increasingly unmanageable, governments and vehicle owners throughout the world look to alternative fuel sources for the transport sector in particular. Natural gas can be used in all classes of vehicles including motorcycles, cars, vans, trucks, buses, lift trucks, locomotives, even ships and ferries. Natural gas can be used either by converting an existing gasoline or diesel engine, or by using a purpose built natural gas engine.

While several alternative fuels offer solutions to some of these problems and will become part of a diverse mix of fuels, few offer the distinct and unquestionable advantages of natural gas. With almost 5 million natural gas vehicles worldwide the International Association for Natural Gas Vehicles is proud to have been at the forefront of industry growth.

Insurance covers items like the insured party, the insured vehicle or the third parties. Different policies specify the circumstances under which each item is covered. For example, a vehicle can be insured against theft, fire damage, or accident damage independently.
