  • Garden Grove: Bad Fills, No Lights

    I've been trying to fill at the GG socal gas location to save some money (current price $2.14), but get only 80%, slow fills and there are no lights on. I can manage to get my card in by the lights of the display, but its really dark there.

    should i continue trying this place or go back to getting robbed at clean energy?

    why did long beach have to sell to clean energy?? I used to get great fills, nice location and very cheap...

    Your lucky you've gotten 80%, best I've gotten is 73%. For the pirce I'm willing to put up with it

    I think the light are on timers or something based on day lights savings time. I think we have to get Socal Gas to adjust when the lights turn on. But I've filled up as late as 8:00pm and the lights have always been on.

      There should be a number on the pump you can call and complain about the lights. It's a safety issue and they need to address it ASAP!

        The garden grove station was designed around 3000 psi fills so you will never see 100% fill at this station. Use the 800 number I use to give out my business card to every one that came to the station. I never could get any one other than John to call me when they had a problem.

            The station for public use is actually on Industry St. not Monarch St. as stated on the address. Industry St. is the street right beside (parallel to) Monarch St., zoom into the map in cngprices to see it. You won't need an access card, I typically get a 75% fill rate on this station.

            Best times to fill up are early in the morning and late evening; otherwsie you'll get lower fill rates due to the trucks and cab drivers that use this station during the day.

              I've updated CNGPrices.com to show the correct location for the Garden Grove station, and put directions in the comments (and a big notice on the name saying look at the directions for comments.)

              I've also removed the notice about the card key since people are apparently saying it is a public station.

              Cheers,

                I have it on good authority that the Garbage Gulch station is getting an upgrade. The compressor from the Santa Monica station (pre CE) is being moved to this location.

                  just wanted to update on this... i went by there yesterday (on industry street), it's 24hr access...

                  filled up, it said somewhere around 73%... but on my display (08 civic) all but 2 bars lit up, just in paar with the other socal stations i use.

                  so i went back and despite my and hate and dislike i figured i stop by the clean energy and top it off to see if clean energy really fills up that much more (for 45 cents more a gallon)

                  8 miles of driving and filling up at CE gave me 0.7 gallons (that's the most money they will ever see from me btw)...

                  so one can discuss how much of that was because of cool down, miles driven an better fill...

                  i would say .3 for miles driven, .2 for cool down.... .2 for better fill... i pick SOCAL anyday of the week ! and at the weekends too

                    I only got an 80% fill on my 3000psi crown vic.

                    I called the 800# when i was last there but only got a voice mail. has anyone been there recently to see if the lighting has been fixed?
