Natural gas today is of increasing interest, as it allows to reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere. The environmental impact of large parks due to large annual mileage is higher than personal vehicles, however, such a fleet is easier to manage through a single control center. Vehicles of waste collection on gas engine fuel will reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere and the noise level in the morning from the vehicles. Studies on the safety of vehicles on compressed natural gas have confirmed the high level of this vehicles, however, the issues of its reliability remain relevant. The proposed method for predicting potential failures and service planning, as well as forecasting operating conditions, will allow to take into account the prospects for expanding the gas engines vehicles’ fleet and ways to reduce the burden on the environment.
