Solution is to ban CNG in commercial vehicles. Reason is that as commercial vehicles are driven much more than private vehicles, frequent compression/de-compression cycle of gas cylinders leads to catastrophic failure much earlier than in private vehicles. Quality of cylinder can determine number of cycles before failure occurs.
