  • Trip from utah

    Hi all, i'm making a trip down to Mesa in a couple weeks and was wonding if anyone could tell me where the fill stations are. I'll be coming down through St. George so i'm good up to there but i'm lost after that. Or if there's a website that lists the stations that would be great!

    Thanks!

    Hi there :

    Perhaps you could check www.cngprices.com.

    The mapped CNG locations on this WEB site will be of assistance.

      If you are planning on filling up in Las Vegas, you'll need a Haycock Petroleum Gas Card. See the "Nevada" forum for info on how to get one. There are NO stations between Las Vegas and Phoenix.

          Vegas details are here...

          As you can also see from the map, the only way to make Phoenix in a dedicated NGV is via Vegas then the LA basin. You will need the California glovebox guide, which can be printed out or I can mail you one along with the sticker you were asking for (will PM you).

          Then the trick is from LA to Phoenix. It is a long stretch and really can not be done in a GX, although Murphy (CNG Motors) has proven that it can be barely done so long as you do an overnight 3600psi time fill before heading out Otherwise, get AAA extended service and plan on calling them close to Phoenix!

            We do need more infrastructure in Arizona, maybe more money will be coming since it will be harder to meet the new EPA 75 PPM.
            We have nothing East, West or North in Arizona and only 1 station in Tucson so far. So unless you only commute in Arizona, you have to have a bi-fuel. Need help, I don't have that deep of pockets. I would love to help build it!

              I have checked out the stations and there is not a station that you can get to that will get you to mesa from St. George. There is a station over by Wiliams AZ on I-40 but it is still too far from the Phoenix metro area to be of any help. You could get to Williams, but then after that, there are not stations until you actually get to Pheonix. Too Far.
              Good Luck!

                khbowman,

                The station in Williams, AZ is a private station (owned by the government). You can not fill up at that station. It is for the buses that run into the Grand Canyon. For this reason, it is not listed on cngprices.com. It is listed on the EERE website as a private - government use only.

                  Again, the only way is to go:
                  • I-15 down to the Los Angeles Basin
                  • Fill in Indio. Hang around Indio for an hour (have lunch or something) while your tank cools down, then top it off with as much more fuel as you can jam into the tank.
                  • Head out I-10, conserving fuel as best you can for the 250 mile segment -- best to fill and travel at night when it is cool.
                  • Call AAA should you not quite make it to Phoenix
                  Good luck, and be sure to post a trip report!

                      Also,
                      In addition to everything folks have said, make sure your tire pressures are at LEAST what the spec is, when they are cold. My spec is 30, I run them at 33 COLD.
                      Good luck!

                        The drive from Indio to Phoenix, you will run out of fuel at about I-10 and the 101 loop, This is within 15 miles of the CE station at the airport. I've done this a few times. You will be in the city limits but you definately not make the airport station
