  • Shell in San Juan Capistrano, CA

    The CNG signs are up on the I5 Northbound. I called the station and was assured that the CNG pump is not yet available. An inspection will happen today, what is being inspected is unknown, but acording to the person at the station this isn't a final inspection.

      Update - Re: Shell in San Juan Capistrano, CA

      I spoke with the station staff and this station should be open the middle of the first week of September. This is not a CE site, that's all I know about the who part of things.

      The address is:
      28662 Camino Capistrano
      San Juan Capistrano, CA

        This is excellent! I live closer to this station than to Sand Canyon, but even if I lived closer to Sand Canyon I would drive here. The station is open and the current price is $1.44 vs. Irvine and Santa Ana's $2.50 at Clean Energy. Even the SDG&E station in Carlsbad is higher. Who is behind the station anyhow? There is a sticker with a link to a clean air website on the pumps (one side is 3000PSI and the other 3600PSI). I think it is government. I can imagine that Clean Energy lobbied like mad to try and block these stations. Goodbye monopoly. The only time I will ever give them a dime is on a drive to Vegas.

          I spoke to the managers of the Shell station and they said they had to jump through hoops for 5 years to get the permits. A CE rep told me they were going to open a station one exit south of Avery, which is the exit for the Shell station, in the next few months. For some reason CE seems to be able to move much quicker than independents.

          Shell plans on raising the CNG price after a few weeks but they do not know what it will be.

          CE keeps the price low at the Aneheim station. Is that because of the competition from Trillium. The CE rep told me that fleets get substantial savings from the pump price. He also said there was no chance of offering this lower price to the CNGChat community.
