Antares Motors, a member of Antares Group, has publicly announced that it has successfully completed the first conversion in Romania of a gasoline vehicle to also use CNG – compressed natural gas.
The success comes after careful preparations, including training sessions of Antares technicians with Italian specialists, both in Italy and Romania. The good news is that CNG can be adapted to both gasoline and diesel engines.
Ecological Fuel for Economical Transportation
The advantages of using CNG are remarkable:
– it is up to 2.5 times more economical than petrol;
– it prolongs engine life;
– the vehicle is running quieter;
– pollution rules are met and even more, the conversion drastically reduces fine particulate emissions.
For the first time Antares Motors will offer customers on the Romanian market the opportunity to convert the propulsion of their cars to CNG, choosing one of the most prestigious and traditional brands in Italy: BIGAS – Cavagna Group or EMMEGAS – Landi Renzo Group.

Volvo Trucks’ new natural gas and biogas trucks have received Italy’s Sustainable Truck of the Year 2018 award. It was handed over at a ceremony in connection with the Ecomondo exhibition in Rimini on November 7.
Volvo Trucks won first prize in the tractor category with the new Volvo FH LNG, which was introduced in Europe this autumn.
“With the launch of the new LNG range (…) Volvo is definitely raising the level of natural gas-powered trucks,” writes the jury in its assessment.
They will replace 4 to 5 years old diesel-powered vehicles in the Belgian firm’s fleet of 1,400 trucks and 3,000 trailers, which has grown steadily following a series of acquisitions. The company already operates 132 Stralis vehicles, including two running on compressed natural gas (CNG).
The pan-European transport and logistics specialist Jost Group has signed an innovative deal for 500 new trucks Iveco Stralis NP vehicles based on the LNG technology.
Designed to be the most sustainable long-distance heavy truck ever manufactured, the new deliveries will then run on LNG – widely regarded as the only currently available mass market alternative to diesel.
With such a deal, Jost Group clearly invests in the Future, in a sustainable way for the environment, faithful to its commitment to reduce CO2 emissions.
Taking that decision, Roland Jost opens the way to another vision of doing transport in Europe.
