NGV quandary

Question : I AM about to install NGV in my Waja 1.6 auto.

Can I refill my gas in Thailand ?

I understand from the Internet that the gas cannot be used with Malaysian cars because the grade is different.

Answer : I do not think that there is any difference between the NGV here and in Thailand as NGV all over the world is basically compressed natural gas or methane and it is normally stored in pressure vessels at about 30 bar (3,000 plus psi) pressure.

What you need to know is that there are many vehicles in Thailand running on LPG, which is a mixture of propane and butane.

LPG can be liquefied under a pressure of about 80 psi whereas CNG (methane) only liquefies when super cooled.

So, even if you are able to fill you tank with LPG, the gas equipment fitted in yours will not be able to handle the liquid gas and the gas metering will be wrong.
