The performance and emission of natural gas as alternative fuel for transportation have been investigated for improvement due to the increasing of fossil fuel price, shortages of crude oil in world and the effect in terms of emission that caused from internal combustion engine fuelled by gasoline and diesel toward environment. The natural gas has been promoted as the best alternative to overcome these problem where throughout by using natural gas, where its able to reduce the emission in terms of nitric oxide (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbon (HC) and particulate matter (PM) from gasoline and diesel engine. This review discuss the effect of natural gas on the internal combustion engine for performances and emission was studied. Besides that, this research also provides the example experiment that has been conducted from other researcher in term of comparison between performance and emission effect from internal combustion engine fuelled by natural gas and liquid fuel such as gasoline and diesel where the data of result have been recorded for analysis. In addition, improvement in natural gas where the method shows by add hydrogen into natural gas can improve the performance result nearest to liquid fuel performance. Less energy and fuel quantity are consumed to produce power at higher engine load due to high of brake thermal efficiency (BTE). However, overall performance by using natural gas still at lowest but the emission produced decreasing compared to liquid fuel.
