Most of you might asking me...what is NGV ?

NGV stands for Natural Gas Vehicle. They operate similarly to traditional vehicles, but they use natural gas as fuel. Natural gas can power existing cars and trucks by converting the engines to a bi-fuel capability. To convert vehicles to natural gas requires installing a tank, fuel pressure regulators, and fuel lines. Most systems incorporate an electronic module which adjusts the engine to maintain comparable performance levels with either fuel. Limited production of dedicated natural gas engines and vehicles is under way at motor vehicle manufacturers. Refueling stations use the same natural gas as commercial facilities and residences. These stations like Petronas NGV now provide compressed natural gas for quick-fill. All lot of people have convert their car to NGV as natural gas is cheaper than petrol. Natural gas cost RM0.62 where as petrol cost us RM2.70. Currently, NGV refueling station n NGV workshop only available at West Malaysia; not east malaysia, WHY ????

Because NGV can save you 60% of fuel cost and it gives almost as efficient as fuel.

Bintulu / Miri has too much gas that they would consistently burn it to keep it at a safe state. which instead they should be making pipes and deliver it to whole of Sarawak.

^^ if everyone starts using NGV, petronas would not earn.

I think thats because NGV is an expensive system to set up and Sarawak is too big and has a small market.
NGV's in West Malaysia consists mainly of taxis and there's tonnes of them there

You know, a thought just came to mind: why not use NGV for buses, in addition to private vehicles. The demand seems to be non-existent because not many people know what it is. Cities in Australia and New Zealand have buses running on NGV, reduces emissions, lower operational costs.

Just operate a public transport-based NGV operation first, watch as awareness grows, and eventually, you'll see people clamoring to convert their engines to run on natural gas.

And just a little off topic, aren't houses in Miri connected to a pipeline linked to natural gas? i.e. natural gas for stoves and such?

yes houses in miri does have pipeline linked to natural gas. it is safe, clean and VERY VERY CHEAP (read: CHEAP). used to stay in miri and using the gas minimally, my bills was rm0.04/months. my friend's family is running an eateries using the same facilites and bills only rm8-11/months.

but not all areas are served by the natural gas, only the older residential areas (piasau, pujut, tanjung) and the cost of installation is around RM 4-5K.

The electrical car powered by advanced Compact Lithium-ion Batteries (charge your car just like how u charge your handheld) is here to replace petrol / diesel / natural gas engine in the future and maybe that would be a few years from now to reduce crude oil import These applies to some asia countries like Japan and China where demands are necessity. As the price per barrel is soaring high, inventors seek ways to improve the situation...

This is the concept car of nisssan pivo 2, a talking robot that'll guide you throughout your journey and it even knows what your feelings were - thanks to the voice-recognition and facial expression software; indeed it's intelligent, it rotates, cabin fits 3 and of course, a go green vehicle.

Pros : I think it's worth a buck for the family and no headaches on petrol hike.

Cons : Consider the crime rates of Malaysia, will it be stolen in a day or two after publicly exposed? Consider the delicious design and features.
