Hey gang, CNGchat needs your help!

For over a decade we have enjoyed providing this little corner of the Internet for folks to discuss all things natural gas vehicles. It is the largest forum of its kind: with some 70,000 posts on over 11,000 topics. But with continued low gasoline & diesel prices and strong automaker support for electric vehicles, consumer interest in CNG has dropped considerably, and with it has visitor traffic here. As a result, Google ad revenues no longer cover hosting fees.

If you find CNGchat to be a useful resource then please consider making a modest donation to support keeping this remarkable pool of knowledge available to the alternative fuels community. Thanks!

  • Another CNG Staion in IL.

    Hi Curt,
    There is one more CNG station in Northeatern IL. that I have started using it and it is available to people that have a business. It is marked as a private station but there are pumps for people that have a Clean N Green Card. Any business can use the "public" pumps if they meet the requirements of the fleet card. I can give particulars and contacts if needed.

    Why are so many people who run company or fleet stations reluctant to allow individuals to fuel up? I would rather see them charge a higher price than be restrictive. Seems like they would benefit. Are they that busy?

      I imagine that many see liability issues, additional wear & tear on the equipment, increased maintenance costs, etc. Some areas don't have incentives for making the station public access, so it just looks like an extra expense when the numbers get put on the table. Just putting a dispenser outside the fence could run $50k - $100k.

        In the case of this particular station, they wanted the station to be open to everyone. They did not want to only serve businesses. They were required to by the municipality who do not understand the properties on CNG. They were worried that someone could use the CNG as a weapon. The station is next to a commuter airport. That said, anyone with a "business" can get a Clean N' Green card. To use the station one must view a training video and sign papers issued by the village that you understand how to operate the pump.
