The new WLTP standards have caused a lot of work for vehicle manufacturers. As a result, the commercialization of the CNG models has been put on hold for several months. Currently, the situation is gradually improving, although not all models have yet returned to the market. However, orders remain high as the popularity of CNG has grown so much in a short space of time.

In the near future, it will be possible to refuel with renewable gas (biomethane) produced from biogas, which can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 80%. The first tests have been carried out in Flanders last November and they turned out to be conclusive. It is already a reality in Germany and France, waiting for other technologies to become a real alternative, gas as fuel is not the future, it is not a utopia, it is a reality. Even if users are in an area with few supply points, they can still drive on gasoline.

The purchase price of a CNG van is relatively close to the price of a diesel vehicle of equivalent power, the average price difference being a few hundred euros. And since the price of a liter of diesel is historically almost 40% more expensive than that of a kilo of CNG, the cost of fuel per 100 km is therefore much higher for a diesel van than for a CNG vehicle.

But it is in heavy truck transport where the difference in favor of CNG has historically been greater, being very profitable in these cases compared to the diesel vehicle.

The price of CNG in Belgium is very competitive and, beyond the temporary changes in the market, it seems to be an alternative that will have great savings for the companies that use it

According to the latest data, around 23,000 Belgians, which represents 0.5% of the country's car park, currently own CNG vehicles, that is, vehicles that run on compressed natural gas. A few years ago, CNG was presented as the revolutionary fuel of the future. It was also useful for heating and cooking, and its main advantage was that it was less polluting than diesel and gasoline. Another benefit was the price. Manufacturers can boast that they sell much cheaper than traditional fuels.

For example, in 2019 the price of CNG was 1.04 euros per liter and that of diesel was 1.44 euros. But that was before the sharp increase in energy prices after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine.

As a result, the price of compressed natural gas is much higher than gasoline and diesel today. And given that on March 19 consumers of these liquids will have a special tax break of 17.5 cents per litre, can owners of gasoline cars expect any action from the government?
