The tour, which started at MHC Kenworth - Kansas City, was launched to give customers a look at the newest natural gas phenomenon.
"CNG is a new product that is starting to expand to the Midwest," said MHC Kenworth-Kansas City New Truck Sales Manager Jeff Blake. "A lot of our customers want to know more about natural gas right now."
Natural gas prices run about $1.50 to $2 per diesel-gallon-equivalent less than diesel and are less volatile. Increased demand is gradually lowering the up-front investment cost and supporters believe improvements to the current infrastructure of filling stations will help spur adoption of the technology.
"MHC created this tour because we want to familiarize our customers with the latest technology," said MHC Vice President/New Truck Sales Manager Jared White.
