    Cummins Inc. has developed a new engine known as the ETHOS: a 2.8-liter power plant for medium-duty truck applications that was designed specifically to use E-85 ethanol (85% ethanol and 15% gasoline).

    Clean Energy Fuels Corp., Freightliner Custom Chassis and Green Alternative Systems (GAS) have joined together to provide an original equipment manufacturer CNG fueling system on the Freightliner CNG MT-45/55 chassis.

    According to Clean Energy, the chassis is used in the linen and uniform, parcel and home delivery, vending and food service, baking and snack delivery, and school bus industries.

    Per the partnership, GAS will provide the new CNG fueling system for the chassis, which is powered by a 6.0 L V8 engine with three available fuel capacities: 35GGE, 42GGE or 52GGE. Clean Energy will provide fleets using the chassis with fueling agreements and access to its nationwide network of fueling stations.

      It bears repeating that the above article says CNG is available at CLEAN ENERGY stations at 37 major airports. The count is actually 44 including all public CNG stations on or very near to the major airports:

      For the record, Nashville TN (BNA) also ended public access to its airport station and now directs public fill customers to an alternate site a mile away. Sacramento eliminated public access to its airport CNG station in 2016, but still uses its station for its CNG shuttle bus fleet for parking drop off.
