Nopetro Reports CNG Usage at its Leon Facility 300% More Than Expected

Nopetro anticipated dispensing 100,000 gallons during the initial year. Instead the facility provided an estimated 400,000 gallons of CNG fuel to serve the needs of its growing clientele.

Rapid adoption of compressed natural gas usage by various organizations has led to an exponential increase in use at Nopetro’s Leon County-based fueling facility, announced company CEO Jorge Herrera.

KW Exec: Natural Gas Gaining Popularity but Diesel Will Still Dominate

“Fair amount of complexity” comes with dual-fuel Westport GX/HD, as on this T800. It has a tank for diesel exhaust fluid (with blue cap) and a diesel particulate filter (the shorter stack behind the cab), as well as large cryogenic saddle tanks (one on each side) to store liquefied natural gas.

CORRECTED -- Kenworth Truck Co. sees a lot of promise in natural gas-powered vehicles, so it featured them last week at gatherings for dealers, customers and trade press writers at its plant in Chillicothe, Ohio. But diesel-powered trucks form a huge majority of those on the road and will continue to dominate the Class 8 business, one of the company’s executives commented to reporters.
