Delhi had been categorized as the fourth most polluted city of the world in a list of metro cities. Burning of fossil fuels has added to the pollution of air in Delhi. So, in year 2002 it switched over to new fuel - CNG.

It is considered better due to

• CNG is a clean fuel that produces very little unburnt particles and thus it is considered as eco friendly.

• CNG burns most efficiently, unlike petrol or diesel, in the automobiles and very little of it is left unburnt.

• Moreover, CNG is cheaper than petrol or diesel, cannot be siphoned off by thieves and adulterated like petrol or diesel

CNG does not contaminate and dilute the crankcase oil. Being a gaseous fuel, CNG mixes easily and evenly in air.
CNG is less likely to ignite on hot surfaces, since it has a high auto-ignition temperature (540 °C), and a narrow range (5–15 percent) of flammability.
