  • Florida

    We are embarking on the chicken and egg mission of building the infrastructure in South Florida. We intend to make it a public/private initiative and will invest several million before it is all said and done. I appreciate all of the experience the posters of this site have provided. We have a signed letter of intent with FuelMaker and we expect to be up and running in the next month. Any comments from other Floridians is welcomed. At the moment we are building our business model around Palm Beach, Ft Lauderdale and Miami-Dade county.

        unfortunately there is no epa legal conversion for a vw at this time what wisegas is talking about is a fueling infrastructure coming soon to a gas station near you in south Florida. so i would suggest saving for a allready converted cng car. it soon will pay off.

          Thanks for posting Scott, while the first wave of conversions will most likely be limited to fleet vehicles, we are going to aggressively pursue additional conversion products approval by the EPA. This will not be an overnight cure, but with public awareness, government support and solid economic fundamentals we see this as a piece of the oil dependence solution. We recognize electric and hydrogen powered vehicles are most likely the future, CNG will continue to be a part of the solution. There are too many people that do not have the ability to plug their car in at night, and hydrogen stations will follow CNG as the next generation, we need something to bridge the 20-30 years it will take to have completely alternative fuel infrastructure. The beautiful part of our plan is that CNG uses many of the same components of hydrogen fueling so when that technology evolves we will be ready for it and in the mean time, if we can convert fleets, promote the new Civic and encourage the other auto makers to get back on board (this idea has been around for almost 100 years, Henry Ford actually had a CNG powered Model T from what I hear) we can begin to get our economy back on track. More to come....

            We will be offering both the conversion and the infrastructure products. We have to get a few more approvals before I can give you all the plans.

                          Good for you Wisegas!

                          I am doing the same thing in western WI.

                          We are trying to set up a grid of stations targetting major hiway intersection areas. Then the driver can go throughout the region and get fueled.

                            Wise Gas 3 Month Update

                            Here we are, oil prices below $60, foreclosures through the roof (pardon the pun) and credit still tight. Sounds like things are going to be tough, but we are pushing our way through. We have increased our customer base, received commitments to bring vehicles into Florida and yes we are still negotiating on our first public access site....

                            The good news is that we now have 2 types of vehicles coming into the Florida market. The 2008 Chevrolet Impala with the Natural Drive CNG retrofit will be available shortly and is running between $30-34K depending on the options you want. It is dedicated CNG and has a $2500 tax credit. The 2009 Honda Civic will be out in July 2009 and should be in the $26-27K range with a $4K tax credit. We have a waiting list on Phill units and vehicles, the fastest I can get a Phill will be early February and that is if you sign up for one today. FuelMaker is promising me they are going to ramp up production so we will see what the new year brings.

                            Natural Gas at your home is now below a dollar and we have 5 Natural Gas providers on board to promote us. Our first Phill stations will be installed in December and we are expecting our station to be announced in December and operational by April or May.

                            Check out www.wisegasinc.com for available automobiles, waiting lists, and more over the next week. We will be making several new sections of our website live this week so please join our mailing list at the bottom of the home page if you have not already done so.

                            Thanks for the overwhelming support of all we have talked with and we expect big news in December.

                              Wise Gas latest update

                              Things have taken longer than expected, but here we are finally in permitting with our first station, waiting on Utah to convince the EPA to change the rules and in discussions with Clean Cities, Conversion shops, Auto Dealers, Manufacturers and politicians about our solution. We have reached the critical mass and now its a matter of closing the deals. I haven't had time to sleep, much less blog for the last couple of months, but I hope you have had a chance to visit our site, pics of T Boone and myself a news story and a fresh face on the site are all available for your review. www.wisegasinc.com
