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.

Monarch Beverage Commits To CNG Kenworth T440s

Monarch Beverage runs Kenworth T440s powered by CNG.

As Fred Dufour looks out at Monarch Beverage’s diesel fueling station, he knows that in only a couple of years, it will nearly be all gone. “The need for diesel, that is,” Dufour said. “Every year, our fleet of trucks consumes nearly 1 million gallons of diesel, but in 2015, we’ll be using less than 100,000 gallons. We’ll be doing our part in reducing our dependence on foreign oil, while reducing greenhouse gases by 1,500 tons per year.”
