Propane stores as a liquid, so it has a much higher BTU per volume stored - a tank that fits in the spare tire hole holds more propane than a CNG tank that sits between the rear shock towers.

OTOH, CNG has a higher octane rating and autoignition temperature, making it more resistant to knocking and preignition when fumigating it into the intake of an engine and compressing it 19.5:1.
