Love’s Travel Stops will introduce fast-fill compressed natural gas fueling capability for heavy-duty trucks at its travel stop located on Interstate 40 at exit 74 in east Amarillo, Texas. The Love’s Fast-Fill CNG station is expected to be open by the second quarter of 2014.
Love’s Fast-Fill CNG expansion in Texas began with eight locations, spanning highways between Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio and will now include this addition to the I-40 corridor. With Amarillo, Love’s will offer fast-fill CNG at 11 of its travel stops across Texas and Oklahoma. As part of its expansion, Love’s has purchased 55 CNG-powered trucks for its own fuel hauling fleet, including five for its Amarillo location.
Love’s Fast-Fill CNG gives professional drivers a similar experience to filling up with Love’s diesel or DEF. Love’s CNG stations are designed to deliver a fill rate of at least 10 gallons per minute in all lanes, meaning a driver can fill a 100 gallon-equivalent tank in 10 minutes or less.
