  • Refueling in Phoenix

    Hello NGV drivers,

    Can anyone in Phoenix comment on which CNG station has the most
    reliable pressure?? Does the Sky Harbor Airport deliver good service??

    I am thinking about attempting a roadtrip from California to Phoenix in a
    2008 GX. I figure that I would need a "good" 3600psi fill.

    Any info is welcome!

    The Sky Harbor station is great. I've never had a problem with them. I will admit that I've only used it 5 or 6 times, but they have massive storage tanks, and they fill buses, shuttle vans etc all the time, so it would have to be consistent I would think.

      Thanks for the info!

      Does anyone else care to add their $0.02 ??

      I wonder if there is a special time to avoid filling up. Or perhaps the busses just
      fill up at random times throughout the day.

        If you check cngprices.com you will see 3 stations at the airport, the rental facility gets a lot of use and then theres the stations on the East and the West end. The East side seems like it has the least amount of use.
        Its too bad Southwest Gas closed their station in Tempe, a lot easier access, but it was older equipment and lower pressure.

            You will NOT make it. If coming from LA you will run out of fuel right about the 101 loop and I-10. I have done this trip in a GX before. Or should I say I haven't finished this trip before. Just plan on a 20-30 tow on either end.

            As far a pressure goes. The CE stations at the airport will have your best pressure. Middle of the night when in least use will ensure a true 100% fill. During the day these pumps are taxed by the shuttles and taxis.
