    yes but they are specifically built to be run on that fuel. It does not mean that you can start filling diesel fuel in your aircraft fuel tanks or installing CNG tanks on ships

    A Cng is not good for luxury cars. I bought corolla g 1500cc it had Cng kit didn't had experience on petrol cars, so drove it on Cng for 1 2 months. The repair prob it caused were much more then the saving it did. I tuned it twice in 3 months. Cost with parts over 10000. Now I don't use Cng at all. And with prius or other expensive cars in my opinion it's cruelty to the car. Unfortunately if the Cng ruined the engine let alone the other parts. There would be a big loss caused. It's a pity pakistan stuck in the Cng quagmire. Billions invested on this. And the loss not recorded. Personally I have lost thousands because of Cng. And suggest all not to drive on Cng.

    Gas for vehicles - No to Industry.
    Water for flooding - No to Dams.

    What a Country.

    I have seen LPG kits installed in Camry Hybrids. But the down side is that the hybrid system fails after some time due to sensor issue which also fails the cruise control and the car runs normal engine on LPG.
