Freightliner Cascadia 113 Compressed Natural Gas Tractor Walk-around

Heavy Duty Trucking's Equipment Editor Jim Park takes you on a walk-around tour of the new Cascadia 113 tractor equipped with the Cummins Westport ISX12 G natural gas engine and a 115 DGE compressed natural gas fuel storage system. Read more about Freightliner's natural gas plans here.

Correction: Towards the end of this video, I describe two fill ports on the saddle tank as being for either the saddle tank or the cabinet tanks. In fact, either port will fuel all of the tanks simultaneously. One port, the smaller of the pair, is the one used by 95% of the retail CNG stations in North America. The larger port is a Transit port, which evolved from the transit industry, where they flow more fuel in a shorter period of time. Not many retail CNG stations currently use Transit ports, but as new stations are built, most are offering both fill ports. -- JP
