The purpose of the research is developing tools for forecasting changes in the service system when expanding the fleet of gas-engine vehicles. Research objectives: consideration methods for reducing emissions of harmful substances in exhaust gases of motor vehicles, consideration the features of the organization of technological processes in the service system when launching vehicles with alternative fuel to the market, developing a simulation model of a service center specializing in the repair and maintenance of diesel and gas vehicles. The following research methods were used: methods of system analysis and mathematical statistics, simulation. Three groups of measures aimed at reducing harmful substances in vehicle exhaust gases are described. It is shown that the usage of gas as an alternative fuel has good prospects for reducing the load on the environment. Achieved results: the developed simulation model can be used to conduct a computer experiment to select the optimal parameters for the operation of an auto service enterprise serving vehicles on both conventional diesel and compressed natural gas.
