No shortage of CNG

There will be no shortage of CNG for bus service in Nashik. This is because MNGL will provide a separate tanker service. The filling time for CNG buses is different, so it will not be a hindrance to other vehicles and buses in the city. CNG buses carry 180 kg of gas. In the current situation, 100 kg of gas will be enough. On an average, buses will run at a rate of 4.5 to 5 km per kg. A bus will cover a distance of 200 km every day.
