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

&amp;ldquo;Fair amount of complexity&amp;rdquo; 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.
