    Re: cng in boston

    Matt,
    I don't know how far up NH you go , but here is something you could try. The University of New Hampshere, Durham, has a filling site. They just increased compression for adding more CNG busses to there fleet. They are also thinking of becoming a public station in the future. If you call the transportation dept. at UNH, tell them you are in the area ,or would like to travel to the area, and ask if you could fill there , they may say yes. They have no way of charging for fuel used, but I'm sure the great minds will come up with something. Tell them you got the info from AVSG. Good luck and if you try, please let me know the response.

    You mean Boston is actually learning about alternate fuel?
    My wife went to meet at Logan International in June of 2002 with our bi fuel LP pickup. The security guards at the park structure gate ask my wife what the tank in the back of the truck was. She answered it and alternate fuel vehicle and it was and it was a propane tank. The guards looked at each other and ask what an alternate fue vehicle was? My wife explained. They wouldn't let her into the parking structure and made her park next to the guard shack.

    Oh well

    Matt,
    Aside from the Honda Dealer in Concord, I don't think there are any. There was talk of a new station at/around the airport in Manchester but I haven't heard or see anything lately.
    Most of my trips into NH were done fueling in/around Boston, on the way in and on the way out. But I usually drive long range NGVs (300-400 mile range).
    If you're coming from Albany, you should have no problem making Concord, but I'd call first to make sure.

    All,
    Babak and his company are doing a great job fueling the Northeast. I have used several of thier stations while visiting family in NH, at my home on Cape Cod and the station at TF Green is super convenient and have never had a problem with thier stations.
    Just remember, the alternative would have been to let Clean Energy get a foothold in New England. We can all imagine how much fun that would be.

    Do to the theft of materials from the DCR yard, a gate was installed at the road to our Stoneham station. It is locked from 6pm to 6am. We are told it is temperary.

    Everett is open to the public. The gate has a card reader to get in. VISA and MASTERCARD only. Exit through gate farther down fence. Pull up to gate , it opens automaticaly. There should never be a chain on either gate. If you find it locked, please call us

    All stations accept VISA and MASTERCARD and open to the public

    Please visit our website, AVSGLP.com for station locations and other CNG info

    Mattamhop, We are sorry you had problems at our stations. MassHiway is a customer of ours. Recently they changed there card service. This created problems between our electronic card verification and there card service. This would freeze up the dispenser. We have resolved the problem . Again, we are sorry for any inconveinence.

    Stinky is the word for CNG in Boston. I drove out to the Peoples Republic of Mass last weekend and found two of those ASVG stations in a row that were not functional. Fortunately I have a Bi fuel, but that was quite frustrating none the less. (the "off" stations were in Worcester and one with a "middle....something in it name)

    I live in Medford so the Stoneham AVSG station would be most convenient. However, beware that it is on 164 Pond st across from the zoo but also where the MDC has vehicles and buildings. They have been putting a pole barrier with a lock across the road after approximately 6:00 pm on weekdays and is rarely unlocked on weekends now. I wonder if AVSG is happy with the MDC locking potential customers out.
    The AVSG station in Lexington at the rest area is always accesible. The Everett station frequently has the chain link gate closed and locked on weekends. There is an AVSG station in Walpole at Rt 1/27 exit that is alwaus accesible. As well as Logan and T.F Green airport in Providence, in case you need them. All take regular credit cards.

    Joe,
    Welcome Joe:

    The EPA numbers seems to be holding for our members.
    City 27-29 Hyway 37-41

    These are the actual GGEs.

    As far as efficiency the Honda website has the horsepower and torque differences between an LX and a GX.

    GX hp 109-111
    LX hp 124 I think...

    please check out one of our members great websites
    cngprices.com for CNG station location and cost.

    Don't forget to use the search function of cngchat.com.

    The AVSG pumps do accept regular credit cards. The stations I frequent are Lexington (128 Service Plaza), Everett (near Sullivan Station/Everett Power Plant), Logan Airport (north service road near T station), and Stoneham (opposite Stone Zoo). You need to reinsert your credit card after filling in order to get a receipt. No problems with the system which I've been using regularly for six weeks.
