Approximately 320,000 cars have been converted to run on natural gas-based fuel instead of gasoline, stated Abdel Fattah Farahat the Head of the Egyptian International Gas Technology (Gastec) company.

Farahat said that there are currently 200 natural gas supply stations in Egypt, however, the plan is to increase that number to reach 366 across Egypt. He commended the state’s efforts and their role in car conversion to natural gas-based fuel.
