Compressed natural gas (CNG) is one of the cleanest-burning alternative fuels available for vehicles, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. The agency adds that while few cars are available with this technology as of 2010, you can retrofit gasoline and diesel vehicles to use CNG. After securing a car that uses this fuel, your next challenge may be locating a filling station that sells it.
