  • Speedy Fuel Opens LNG Stations in the Ports of LA and Long Beach

    Speedy Fuel Opens LNG Stations in the Ports of LA and Long Beach. ALT Supplies Fuel. June 26, 2010 – 2:28 pm | USA, California Speedy Fuel, Inc., an owner and operator of several fuel stations around Southern California, has launched their first liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueling station, serving heavy-duty class-8 trucks in the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach areas. The station began providing fuel for trucking companies and independent owner operators within 60 days following initial groundbreaking. Applied LNG Technologies (ALT), a marketer and distributor of liquefied natural gas (LNG), is supplying LNG to the multi-fuel public access station. According to an ALT press release, the station is the first to be entirely funded privately and will be followed by two more in 2011.

      could you put a thermos tank in one of those honda cars you all like so much and increase the range as this is the big draw back I see with small cars or whould you need a pump to raise the pressure?

        The head pressure is higher in an LNG tank than the injection pressure so you would not need a pump, only a heat exchanger.

          Do you know if they will offer CNG as well? The CE station by the port has been unable to get their CNG dispensers working for months now. Every time I pass by there the answer is : next week or next month.

            I hear the same thing from the guys at CE. I was told by one of them that the demand for CNG in the area was too low to finish the CNG dispening system, but I dont necessarily agree.

              With what they already have into it I can't believe they wouldn't complete the CNG system. We are talking about C.E. though.
