  • nervous about a run to st george

    I am planning/hoping to drive my GX to St. George Friday, but after reading the pressure info from the Cedar City and Fillmore stations I am nervous. If Springville and Stgeorge are pumping with good psi I am figuring that to help me out. According to my scan gauge (which has been so awesome to have) I am getting about 36 mpg on flat surface at about 70 mph. Can anyone reassure me? I would hate to drive my van. It would cost 5 times the $ and I am spoiled on cng.

        We did the trip in late August and barely made it back. There is only one station in St George and one in Cedar and they are used quite a bit. We only got .56 of gas in Cedar and pulled into Fillmore on fumes. I will take a bi-fuel but don't feel comfortable doing it again in my Civic.

            I'm sorry, but I have to comment on this. When using CNG in your vehicle, you are always riding around "on fumes" I know it is a figure of speech, but I think its funny.

              We had a wonderful trip. I got 3600 psi in St George Saturday night. I hope no one saw me do the happy dance. Richfield is the key. It was a beautiful drive and the time difference was barely noticeable. For you folks filling in Springville, that place is WAY too busy what a circus. We skipped the station on the way back and stopped at SLC Questar. I may have been able to make it all the way to Brigham from Richfield, but didn't want the stress. I could have almost made St George to Springville, but again didn't want the worry. Did the whole trip with the running around St George for about $25!

                Good to hear, I'm heading down in a couple weeks. I've been getting GREAT freeway mileage lately but I was worried about a round trip down there. Glad the St G station had great pressure. Seems like the only time we ever hear news about pressure is when it's bad so I guess it's easy to assume it's always bad.

                  i live in cedar and drive a 3/4 ton ford truck to mesquite nev. and back every day . cedars pump always sucks avg. 2000 2200 psi , st. george 's pump is good but the key is timing , all of the shuttles from cedar and st geo. to the vegas airport roll in and drain the place , shuttles stacked up three deep both lanes .20 gal . tanks or more each. mid afternoon .

                      Does anyone have news on Fillmore these days? Last time through there (6weeks ago) Fillmore has been fine (around 3,000) and Richfield has not always been that great. I know that John recommends going through Richfield, but I have been disappointed there twice, once the compressor was down but fortunately Questar was there to fix it and another time the pressure was 2,100, so to call Richfield good and reliable is not always true. I make that drive from Salt Lake to St George every 6-8 weeks. Just wondering if anyone has been in either place within the last couple of days or anyone lives there and can give insight info.

                      Thanks,
