Methane Stations.

There are currently four methane stations in Reykjavík and one in Akureyri.
Refuelling is simple and safe and takes approximately the same time as filling a petrol tank.

Methane service stations in Iceland will certainly increase in number in coming (upcoming) years, as has been the case all over the world.

Energy content

Methane is sold in quantities of normal cubic metres, Nm3. Icelandic methane is of the very highest quality, with up to 98% purity. The energy content of one unit (Nm3) of Icelandic methane is slightly higher than that of one litre of 95 octane petrol. You can drive a methane/petrol-powered vehicle at least as far on one unit of methane (Nm3) as on one litre of 95 octane petrol. Test results from manufacturers indicate that a methane/petrol-powered car can in fact drive 4–6% farther on one unit of methane (Nm3) compared to a litre of 95 octane petrol.
