NATURAL GAS VEHICLES

NATURAL GAS VEHICLES

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a clean, affordable alternative to diesel fuel and gasoline. It’s perfect for business owners and fleet operators looking to save significant amounts in operation and maintenance costs. The average cost of CNG is typically less than gasoline and diesel, and prices are expected to remain stable. Furthermore, heavy duty Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) operate quieter and produce less harmful exhaust than gasoline and diesel engines, resulting in substantial reductions of hydrocarbon, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide and greenhouse gas emissions.

In order to meet current emissions standards, diesel engines must be equipped with expensive and maintenance intensive filters and exhausts fluid. Heavy duty NGVs meet current EPA emissions standards without any additional filters and/or exhaust fluid. Natural gas is nontoxic and noncorrosive, so it isn't harmful to soil or water. CNG is lighter than air, and will dissipate into air so vapor clouds and puddles are not an issue.

In an effort to promote a viable network of fueling stations and grow the CNG market in the greater Washington D.C. area, Washington Gas is opening 3 public fueling stations, so more fleets can consider CNG as a feasible fueling option. All stations will be open to the public 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and all major credit cards and fuel cards will be accepted. For your convenience, the station in the District will be designed for heavy duty access including busses and tractor trailers.

You will find Washington Gas’ public CNG fueling stations at the following locations:

1800 N. Market St, Frederick, MD 21705
7600th block of Penn Belt Drive, District Heights, MD 20747
