    Re: winter park co .

    The stations in Grand Junction and Rifle are reliable, good pressure, but Rife is especially expensive. Note that all of the Denver Clean Energy stations require a special Colorado Clean Energy fueling card. No credit cards are accepted. And, your CE card from California won't work there! You must apply in advance to the Clean Energy office in Denver for the special Colorado card well in advance.

    There are a few non-CE stations starting to pop up in the Denver area. Ward Energy in Castle Rock and Sky Blu in Firestone.

    So from California you could make it to Winter Park via I-70 (might need to stop into Moab to fill in a 2011 Civic with limited range), but then you would need to go to Denver before heading back.

        Hey well done Darren!
        Did you stop by the station in Rifle CO to top-off? I understand it has been closed and wondered if it was back up and running again.

          They are no longer selling cng in Rifle Co. We did spend a day in Moab .That station is 35 miles off the 70 . It would be great to have a station by Vail Co .

              Sure . Barstow . las vegas sinclair station . cedar city . Jr s truck stop. richfield is a must only one station. grand junction is a must. Parachute is a must . last denver pick your poison . you might need a clean energy card We have one .. On the way back we went to the Moab station . The most we used was 6.8 gallons in richfield its 3000 psi pump filled up in grand junction 3600 PSI for 6.8 gallons . Always had no less then 3 bars showing at time of fill up .

                Get a 3600 fill at Scipio Eastbound. The highway back to I-70 cuts thru a valley so car doesn't have to work any harder. Range is extended greatly at 55 mph - doesn't hurt to conserve in the first half of the run and later add A/C when it looks like you'll make it (bars on fuel gage roughly indicate 20 mi each, but take notes during run to see how this varies from full to empty.)

                  Bike racks are coming off CNG transit buses in Glenwood Springs to make room for ski racks

                  https://twitter.com/RFTA

                  On recent road trip across Colorado, the stations in Trinidad, Pueblo, Parachute, Grand Junction, and (I'll throw these these UT stations in) Moab and Scipio were in great shape and taking consumer credit cards.

                  The other NEW public CNG stations shown on cngprices.com in Denver (Rexoco 6185 N Broadway - a Denver Clean Energy station that takes consumer credit cards!) and Colorado Springs are now providing fuel in important stretches of travel.

                  Public stations are PLANNED for Glenwood Springs (in addition to the private RFTA bus CNG station already in use) and Fort Collins through the CO CMAQ $30M grant program:
