  • Driving down to San Diego

    Heading to San Diego this Saturday, anyone had any issue swith the stations at Carlsbad and SDG&E Service Center - Miramar? First trip down there for me with the GX, anything that I should be prepared for?

    Thanks in advance!

    Re: Driving down to San Diego

    Carlsbad has always been very reliable and very close to the freeway. Miramar is a little farther off the beaten track, and has a gate which may not be open evenings and weekends if I remember correctly. Pearson Fuels is worth looking just for the beauty of so many alt fuels in one place, like Riverside. Also right off the freeway (a little south of the Miramar area). The pump near Lindburg Field is very expensive as I recall.

      I think that may be worth the extra drive south just to check it out. Santa Monica has Conserve but unfotunately they only sell standard gas and bio diesel fuels. We really need more stations like Pearson, Thanks for the tip!

      It'll be a nice drive south knowing how much money I'm saving driving the GX

        carlsbad has been good to me and unless you will drive a lot in SD you can fill up on your way down and then and you way back. it's pretty close to SD and real easy 24hr access

          Carlsbad, Pearson and the pump by the airport have all been reliable for me. No worries.

            I refuel regularly at the SDG&E station in Carlsbad. The other posters are right on, fuel on the way in and way out of town and you're covered.

            Carlsbad is uncrowded and charges rate-regulated prices for CNG fuel. CE at the airport charges their usual gasoline price less $0.60.

                    Hey Guy I have a couple questions.

                    So how much does it cost to fill up a tank here in San Diego? I heard NG prices have double in the last year?

                    And how often do some people fill ip here in San Diego?

                      I've never filled in SD, I always top off so I can make a round trip. It looks like the price right now is between 2.85-3.20/gge. You can check at www.cngprices.com

                        If I end up driving around San Diego, I end up filling up at Carlsbad on the way home if I'm on the 5 FWY. If I'm on the 15 FWY, I fill up in Hemet, Corona or make slight detour in Riverside to get back to Orange County.

                        Hopefully they open up a station Temecula, I've got family there and it'll make it more convinient.

                            Pearson Ford told me they don't want to work on CNG vehicles. Or maybe they don't want to work on MY vehicles. Bad experience.

                            I don't fill up in SD, I stop at Riverside on my way home. If/when temecula opens up I'd stop there instead.

                              Does SDG&E require an account or access card?
