Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is normally dispensed in "equivalent gallons" where one "equivalent gallon" is equals to 121.5 cubic feet of CNG. The fuel economy for natural gas vehicles is shown in miles per gallon-equivalent.

 

The carbon footprint measures greenhouse gas emissions expressed in CO2 equivalents. The estimates presented here are "full fuel-cycle estimates" and include the three major greenhouse gases emitted by motor vehicles: carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and methane. Full fuel-cycle estimates consider all steps in the use of a fuel, from production and refining to distribution and final use. Vehicle manufacture is excluded.

Car table from:  http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/byMPG.htm

Save Energy & CO2 - Drive one of these cars instead of taking transit

The average transit bus gets 29.52 passenger-miles per gallon.

 

If you want to save energy, just get a car that gets better mileage!

 

The table lists miles per gallon for the whole vehicle. To correct for the fact that the average vehicle in the USA carries 1.57 people, adjust that bus passenger mileage of 29.52 to a car equivalent by dividing by 1.57. This yields 18.8 vehicle miles per gallon for a car with an average of 1.57 people to match an average transit bus.

 

Just scan down the table till you hit a city mileage of 18.8 mpg and all cars above that point beat taking the bus for energy consumption.

 

For light rail, the number is 28.6 mpg

 

For Amtrak, the number is 30.0 mpg (use highway mileage here as we are now comparing inter city transportation.

This car and all those above it beat the average transit bus on energy consumption

This car and all those above it beat the average Amtrak train on energy consumption

This car and all those above it beat the average light rail train on energy consumption
