Ease of Use and Availability

 

Where is natural gas available? According to the AFDC, there were 618 CNG and 42 LNG stations in the United States. To find natural gas station locations, visit the Alternative Fueling Station Locator at www.afdc.energy.gov/stations.

Is it easy to fuel an NGV? Yes. CNG vehicles are fueled with easy-to-use, pressure-sealed dispensers. CNG fueling stations can be configured to fuel vehicles at various rates. Time-fill stations fuel parked vehicles overnight, taking advantage of off-peak electricity rates and smaller compression equipment. Fast-fill stations fill vehicles rapidly using larger compression equipment and high-pressure gas-storage systems. Fueling LNG vehicles requires special procedures and training, but the process is not difficult. As with all vehicles, proper safety precautions must be taken when refueling NGVs.

Where can I learn more about natural gas? To learn more about natural gas as a transportation fuel, visit the AFDC's natural gas pages at www.afdc.energy.gov. The NGV America Web site at www.ngvc.org also features a wealth of information about natural gas and NGVs.
