  • Made it to WA State

    Hi everyone,

    I made it to Washington State with a little help from the locals. I am now one of the few, the proud CNG vehicles in Washington State. Clean Energy has several stations up here, and are building more as we speak. I have yet to see another aside from buses.

    Regards,

    Kameron

    Hi Kameron, welcome to CNGchat and congrats on arriving in Washington. I expanded the scope of this forum to include the Pacific Northwest, so we look forward to hearing of your experiences. My understanding is that public CNG stations are very few and far between, right?

      Hi John,

      I'm in Western Washington (Seattle area). At the moment, it's a trapeze act from CleanEnergy station to station. You've got Tacoma (Pierce Transit), Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, and Everett (north of Seattle). The others are verboten to you and I. City of Seattle / Charles Street station is for government only, and Puget Sound Energy (the local gas company) won't let you use theirs (the gas company - who is in business to sell gas at a profit to consumers...if this makes sense to you, please write me an e-mail and explain it to me).

      Good news: CleanEnergy is building a brand new station right at the I-90 / I-405 intersection, which is *right* by my work. Also, they're hunting for two more spots in the downtown Seattle area to put up stations. I can't wait for that new station - it's right by where I'm working! I'll keep everyone posted on the progress up here.

        HI
        Newby here, but do get up to Seattle area sometimes from Portland area where I am.
        Please post the locations and price info on those to be added fueling stations when they open. SeaTac and Tacoma locations are only ones I have been to.
        I will soon be the first Oregon owner of a 2008 Civic GX, and will be doing a break-in road trip that way.

          You are a brave soul - there's only one public CNG station in the Portland, and that's in Hillsboro. Welcome to the crowd! Just think - when gas goes to 4.00 $ a gallon, you can point fingers and laugh!

          I'll update as I visit SeaTac and Tacoma! Factoria (I-90 and 405 interchange) will open in early December.

            Kameron,

            When you say you made it to Washington state, did you drive a CNG vehicle there? And if so, would you please give us some details about your vehicle and your trip?

            On a personal note, I would like to travel from southern California to Eugene, OR in September driving my 2006 Honda Civic GX. I have a PG & E card, and it looks like it will be pretty easy to get as far as Chico, CA. After that, things look sketchy. If this is the route that you went, perhaps you or someone else in the community can fill me in on places to fuel, etc.

            Thanks in advance,
            Michael M

              Unless you have an extra tank installed,
              OR
              a couple of friends with home fuelers between Chico and Medford Oregon,
              the only way you can make that trek now is behind a tow truck.
              There currently is nothing public in Eugene, so a home fueler friend would be needed there also if you plan to return south.
              I would like to make the reverse trip from Portland going south into Calif, but I-5 just does not have sufficient gaps filled in yet on public CNG pumps.
              Keep checking the Station Locator link on this forum - something may pop up eventually.

                Don't forget to visit Vancouver Canada

                Hi Kameron :

                I've owned a NGV since 1991.

                Now that you've made it all the way up to Washington State, don't forget that you'll be able to fill up with Natural Gas here in Vancouver Canada.

                There are 19 NGV fill up points in or near the city of Vancouver, and if you can travel say 170 miles round trip, you'll be able to drive your NGV all the way to Whistler, then back to Vancouver. I make this journey all the time in my NGV.

                I am also very interested in the knowing when the Clean Energy stations open.

                Happy NGVing

                  Matthew Mercure for NGTNews April 20, 2020 - U.S. Gain Supplies SEA Fleet with RNG

                  U.S. Gain has completed an RNG supply agreement with the Port of Seattle. RNG will be used to heat Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) and power its fleet of buses.

                  RNG can be procured through contracts with suppliers like U.S. Gain and comes without the need for infrastructure upgrades, features uninterrupted supply unlike other renewables and availability is increasing daily as new development projects come online, adds Nudelbacher, director of RNG business development at U.S. Gain.
