    As a general rule of thumb, only 40% of the stored gas in a three bank cascade arrangement is available for refueling. This means that a 30,000 cubic foot storage cascade will deliver about 12,000 cubic feet of natural gas quickly. This equates to about 96 equivalent gallons of gasoline.
    Interesting ..

      And only 20% of total volumn in a cylinder can be delivered at pressure. Drop beyond 20% and you will not get a 3600 psi fill.

        Thanks for educational link to McKenzie Corp website and information about cng storage and fast-fill capacity. This whole process is quite difficult to explain to "non-believers" who know nothing about CNG.

        Quite disheartening though that NOT a single public cng refueling facility exists now in Pittsburgh, PA - - - home of McKenzie Corp. Closest facility is Washington, PA which now shows as non-operational - - - I last used this site in Dec 2007 on cross-country run in dedicated Civic GX. PA also lost public cng site in Harrisburg, PA which was just across the street from a Honda dealer (cng public site was by Pacific Pride). Guess that PA is home of "clean coal" (pun intended !!) . . . . even though they now have massive discovered quantities of natural gas as well.
