The transport industry has witnessed an ever-growing increase in natural gas vehicles due to a number of positive factors.

Natural gas-fueled vehicles offer a multitude of advantages, encompassing both ecological and economic aspects. The utilization of methane as a fuel source not only reduces the overall environmental impact but also capitalizes on the cost-effectiveness of this resource when compared to traditional fuels.

However, a very frequent question that many people ask is whether methane-fueled vehicles are safe and strong enough.

Nevertheless, amidst the increasing popularity of methane-fueled vehicles, one question prevails in the minds of many: Are these vehicles safe and durable enough?

This concern particularly revolves around the comparison between composite gas cylinders and steel ones and their respective abilities to absorb energy. If we were to ask you to evaluate these two types of cylinders and determine which one possesses a greater capacity to absorb energy, what would your response be?

If we asked you to make a comparison between a composite gas cylinder and a steel one and tell us which one has a greater ability to absorb the energy, what would you say?

Moreover, have you ever wondered what would happen if you were driving a gas-fueled car and accidentally collided with a hard object? Would the gas cylinder explode upon impact?
