To curb air pollution and reliance on fossil fuels, Iran’s Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh has set forth a plan to convert carbureted motorcycles into using compressed natural gas (CNG).
There are 11.5 million motorbikes in Iran, three million of which ply on Tehran's streets. All of the two-wheelers are infamous for their high fuel consumption. The motorcycles also have a huge share in worsening air pollution in major Iranian cities.
Zanganeh also told IRIB News that plans are in motion to set up centers where carbureted motorbikes would be converted to use CNG. He added that specialists are designing mobile and stationary gas stations to supply CNG to motorcycles. 
"Some changes should also be made in the two-wheelers' fuel tank and combustion system in order to adjust them to burning CNG," he said.
