    That Ardmore station is creepy Bring a flashlight or hope for a full moon...
    Does your car have 150 mile range? If so stop in Paul's Valley. If you have 200 mile range top off in Norman. Or, call Tom at Tulsa Gas and get yourself a 300+ mile range Impala, skipping all the stations (shameless plug ).

      If your car has the 3600 psi ability, I would stop at the new clean energy station at will rogers airport. You can make it all the way to Dallas without stopping again. It would only be about 5 miles total out of the way of your normal route. Ong stations have become extrememly unreliable so I feel your pain regarding them.

        Yes quite a few of the ONG cng pumps need some work. Neither ONG nor Tulsa Gas Technologies seem to be in any hurry to fix problems that are reported . . . argghhh!!#%&*#$%!!! I've noticed that Bartlesville, OK pump #2 has been down for months and #1 pump does NOT take any MasterCard payments, even though I had just bought from Ponca City and it did take MC.

        In past the Tulsa main cng station on 15th wasn't dispensing properly, so ONG just let customers flip the handle and get cng for free!! Don't think they'll let that happen again as there were always several cars waiting during that time and pressure never seemed to catch up over 2,500 psi.

        I'd suggest complaining in writing to ONG / ONEOK corporate, as well as phone ONG Dispatch number that is listed on the pumps.

        Tom at TGT, please could you get these ONG dispensers fixed up and working with low/medium/high and higher pressure?? If additional cng techs are needed, might get some from Utah while this whole public utility commission problem is being fought!!!

          Where are you filling in Dallas? I made the trip twice, once using the Muskogee station and once using Okmulgee. Both stations worked well from what I saw and gave me 3300 + at Muskogee and 3000 + at Okmulgee. I cant remember the exact mileage to the Garland station in Dallas but I had 900 psi left in a 10.8 gal system driving up from TX and that route is alot shorter I think. But there is long dead spot in the hwy with nothing more than gasoline and casinos.

            I fill up at DFW airport. My sister lives less than a mile from it and she is usually the one I am visiting in the Dallas area so it's no big deal. I also have family in OKC which is why I usually go that way. Muskogee would be about an hour out of the way, and I couldn't make it to Dallas from Okmulgee.

            As far as the number on the pumps, I call each time I use them but it does not seem to be doing any good.

            BTW, I work for the city of Tulsa and just noticed a brand new cng pump at their main refueling station at 23rd and Jackson. They had the old style like most of the ong pumps but the new one looks more like the Clean Energy pumps at the DFW airport. Very nice. It is the nicest pump I have seen in Oklahoma, wish the public could get the use of it as I am there often and have never seen a vehicle refueling. Bet they have good pressure.

              The Pauls Valley pump was dangerous to use about 2-3 weeks ago. It wouldn't stay on the nozzle. It started to fill then would fly off. The quick connect wasn't working correctly so I gave up. I called ONG and they said they would have someone check it. The last time I used the Norman pump it was beeping an error code and wasn't usable. That was back before Christmas. Hopefully it has been fixed since then. All of these ONG pumps appear to be in poor shape. I doubt ONG will spend much on repairing them unless they can raise their rates to cover the cost. I would be willing to pay more to know that the pump is going to be reliable. Perhaps they can increase the pressure too.

                We've taken the Paul's Valley route to Dallas also. What we found is while cng is cheap here, in TX it was only 15 cents cheaper than unleaded. That didn't justify having to drive the long way through OKC. That was back in August.

                Yes, the Oklahoma pumps have not been reliable in quite sometime. We had to suck it up and buy a home pump because of it. I can't remember where I heard this, but rumor has it that ONG is about done with public pumps and are going to phase them out. That leaves consumers with 2 options, either fork out the big bucks for a home pump or get rid of their cng cars. It's disappointing either way if that happens.

                  by this time next year, there should be a ton more fueling stations at retail locations throughout the OKC area at least. Somewhere, there is a map with all the filling locations but I havn't looked for it. Kyle

                    Drove my new CNG Ford Focus from Austin up to OKC and Shawnee last weekend and had no problem getting fuel. I usually stop at the CleanEnergy station in Ft Worth. The DFW station is much bigger and nicer, but several miles out of the way. The ONG station in Ardmore is as others have described. My biggest problem (besides no light and only 3000) has been the display screen on the card reader not working. The first time this happened, I was able to swipe my card and the luckily remembered that it is "pump number" and then "Enter". I can make it to Pauls Valley, but hate to push it that far.

                      Forgot to mention. I spoke with one of ONG's station maintenance guys (suddenly I'm thinking what maintenance), but anyway he told me that he has the best luck with hose #3.

                        ONG has installed a new card reader at the Ardmore station. Much better now.
