    Thanks for all the replies!

    It turns out that the CNG pump at that station is fine.

    They have something that looks like a CNG pump behind a locked fence, a a yellow tag on the fueling equipment that said "Emergency fuel shutoff, call NW Natural to reactivate".

    But the tag is old, and the real CNG pump is in the island along with the gas and diesel pumps.

    So I was able to fill up after all! Thanks so much to all the people who offered there home refueling options to me!

    Hopefully I'll be able to help somebody with there CNG issues down the road.

    Doajvaf :

    Just to add to Todd's input.

    Since you said "I just drove my CNG-only Ford E-350 van down to Vancouver, WA", I will assume your return destination is Northward.

    You probably already know this but, the closest CNG Station to Hillsboro, going North is located at :

    3898 94th St SW,Lakewood,WA
    telephone Number 800-663-4555 or 888-732-6487

    North of the Lakewood Station is Port of Seattle at:

    19425 28th Ave, S Seatac, WA
    888-732-6487

    Good Luck

    If you already have AAA, then you can get it towed. Even on the cheapest plan they only tow you 7 miles for free, but the per-mile cost after that was fairly nominal, if I remember correctly. I think it was only 50 cents a mile or something. You could call them up to ask. (If you find out, let us know!)

    You're also closer to some of the stations up in Lakewood, WA ... if you can drive 50 miles up there and then be towed, you're down to about 75 miles left.

    Good luck!

    Emergency fueling options in Vancouver, WA area?

    Hey!

    I just drove my CNG-only Ford E-350 van down to Vancouver, WA for a
    conference. I then drove it over to the Bretthauer oil company CNG pump in Hillsboro, OR (about 20 miles away), and the CNG pump was down

    I called them this morning, and they indicated that they did not know that the pump was down, and that it should be back online by noon today (if the problem is not serious).

    Now I'm trying to decide what to do if the problem is serious.

    Does anybody have any slow fill CNG stations they would let me fuel at? Are there any other emergency fueling options within about 40 miles of Vancouver, WA area?

    And lastly, what is the cheapest way to have a Ford E-350 towed ~175 miles, if that is the only option.

    Thanks in advance for any help!
