Table .1 gives the comparative properties of Diesel and CNG, which shows that the auto-ignition temperature, octane number and net energy content of CNG is considerably higher as compared to the diesel fuel.

Department of Agriculture, claims that the net energy content of ethanol runs 1.2 times more than the fossil energy needed to produce it.
They found negative correlations between barley DMD and average daily gain (r = -0.36; P = 0.007), barley net energy content (r = -0.60; P [is less than] 0.001), and feed efficiency (r = -0.37; P = 0.007) in feedlot cattle.
Barley net energy content, feed efficiency, and average daily gain are all economically important performance parameters in feeding beef cattle and appear to be successfully predicted from starch content, ADF content, particle size, and DMD (Surber et al., 2000).
Determination of the net energy content of canola meal from Brassica napus yellow and Brassica juncea yellow fed to growing pigs using indirect calorimetry.
Thus, the objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of the net energy content in diets with low crude protein level supplemented with industrial amino acids on performance and carcass traits of barrows from 60 to 95 and 95 to 120kg.
(2004) reported that diet (4.7% CF) containing higher milled wheat bran was not associated with decreased in net energy content. Therefore, the effect of crude fibre on the net energy content was ignored because the levels of crude fibre were less than 4.3% in this present study.
