    Re: Colorado Prices

    Yes they do, and you can help contribute. Just go to http://www.cngprices.com/ (it automatically zooms in to Long Beach CA, but you can move the map to Colorado or anywhere else) Once there you can see the current natural gas prices at various stations as submitted by users. You can click on any station to see the price of gas, street address, and when the price was last updated. If you ver notice an inaccuracy, just submit an update.

      Do you know if all those stations in Denver that are listed as .75/gge are accurate?

        Re: Colorado Prices

        I can tell you that they are not accurate. If you look at the lower left hand corner of the webpage it indicates that bright red prices have been posted in the last 30 days. the dull, grayish red prices are at least 30 days old. Also if you click on any of the $0.75 stations it says "This station may require card key access. This station may require special forms of payment." That indicates that these stations are probably for a private fleet. I don't know how it works in Colorado, but some states have government owned fill stations that require special access or special debit cards that the public can apply for. It might be possible for you to gain access to those stations, but then again it may not. I don't have any idea how it works in Colorado, but in Las Vegas you need to have a government issued debit card to use the stations.... i happen to know someone though who just goes to a busy station and "borrows" another persons pump and pays them cash when he needs to.


        P.S. I searched one of the fleet station addresses online and got this website... http://www.cleanenergyfuels.com/stations/denver.html If you click on the "Contacts" menu, there is a Denver office. You might be able to call them and find out if there is a way for access their filling stations.

          I can't tell you if the prices are accurate there (my guess is the $0.75 data is not correct!), but it does look like most of the stations in Colorado are Clean Energy, but they require a "Natural Fuels Card" which I'm guessing must be obtained from Clean Energy. (You can see this for yourself by clicking on the "Comments" tab in the station information window.) There are a number of stations outside the Denver area that do not require a special card.

          As I say on the site, it's always best to call ahead and see what the requirements are. There are generally phone numbers in the database for each station.

          Cheers,

            Re: Colorado Prices

            Price in CO at the CE sites is $2.29 per GGE There are about 15 or so public access sites all in the front range: metro denver, boulder, cheyenne, castle rock and Colorado springs. We also have a good conversion-cng mainteance shop called FuelTek (303)941-2791. We have a CO state tax credit incentive for CNG vehicles, combined with the federal incentive it makes for a great deal on the GX or any of the new Ford Conversions.

              Thanks for the info. I updated all the CE stations in Colorado to 2.29 / GGE.

                Kirk and everyone else -

                I just updated CNGPrices so that it no longer defaults to Long Beach. If you have never visited before (or you clear your cookies), it now uses your IP address to approximate where you are (using the free GeoCityLite database from maxmind.com) and shows around that area (if you are in the US, Canada or Sweden. Otherwise it still defaults to Long Beach!) Hopefully that will make it just a tiny bit easier to use. If there are any problems with how this feature works, let me know!

                  Bogidu, Kirkbenge and all cng supporters,

                  Research I did for trip I was planning through CO revealed (through Clean Energy representative) that the "Natural Fuels Card" is a mandated STATE-SPECIFIC CE fuel card that ONLY works in Colorado!!

                  Also, be prepared to shell out $100 lifetime deposit to get CE fuel card that actually is NOT a charge card, but a marketing access card that one day later charges in batch to an actual credit card that customer provides (VISA and MC only). Also note that CE fuel card $100 lifetime deposit is NON-INTEREST BEARING, and only refunded at ultimate cancellation of card.

                  If you have to move from CO to say NY, or CO to TX, or CO to CA and you need a CE fuel card in that state, then Clean Energy will charge you yet another fee of:
                  $25 card activation fee
                  since you cancelled one card, and started up another card - - - however, not by your doings, but by Clean Energy monopoly practices by FORCE!!

                  BUYER BEWARE . . . nothing you can do though since CE has virtual monopoly for the entire state of Colorado. I would Strongly Urge you to get your own Fuelmaker and avoid CE, unless absolutely necessary.

                  P.S. Sorry that you are stuck in monopoly market of CE. Here in Oklahoma, I can drive the entire state and purchase public cng at only $0.91 per gge using a normal credit card (VISA or MC).

                    Re: Colorado Prices

                    So far, I am not too fond of Clean Energy but what am I to do?

                    I am in Colorado and the GGE price is $2.49. Clean Energy told me that the price is the same through out the state and I have also visited a couple of the pumps.

                      Re: Colorado Prices

                      I stopped by the pump today. Price is now $2.64

                      I am sure it has to do with the cost of transporting fuel from one place to another and not that Clean Energy likes to have an established difference between the cost of gas and the cost of CNG.

                      Steve

                      PS - Makes me want to look into a business loan to setup my own CNG station.

                        What transportation? Don't they just tap into the existing natural gas infrastructure?

                          "Transportation costs" was a little bit of sarcasm on my part ;-)

                              LOL, I might as well fill up on gasoline.

                              I have been visiting family in Utah this past week and have been enjoying the 0.63 per gallon.
