The transport industry has witnessed an ever-growing increase in natural gas vehicles due to a number of positive factors. Natural gas fuelled vehicles present advantages both from an ecologic and economic point of view, due to a lower environmental impact and the present-day cost of methane compared to traditional fuels.

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

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

What do you think would happen if you drove a gas fueled car and bumped into a hard object? Do you think the gas cylinder would explode?
