Natural Gas Vehicle Fleets

Switch your fleet vehicles to compressed natural gas and save
Natural Gas Innovation > Natural Gas Vehicle Fleets

Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) have a higher octane rating, are more fuel efficient, have lower operating costs and produce fewer emissions than gasoline or diesel engines.

Why Fuel Your Fleet Vehicles with Natural Gas?

Cost Savings

Natural gas costs about 1/3 less than gasoline and about 50% less than diesel, resulting in significantly lower operating costs.

Abundant and Home-Grown

Using a gallon equivalent of natural gas means one less gallon of imported oil, which reduces dependency on foreign oil. Natural gas is an American fuel and an industry helping generate job opportunities and boosting the economy.

Cleaner

Natural gas produces less exhaust emissions from your vehicle and less carbon than any other fossil fuel.

Safe

Natural gas is lighter than air, so it dissipates when released. It doesn’t leak into the ground. The ignition temperature is high – 1000 to 1100°F. Comprehensive standards for fuel tank, vehicle and station design ensure safe operations.

Natural Gas Vehicle Fleets are increasing in popularity, with about 50 U.S. manufacturers producing nearly 100 models of engines for use in light, medium and heavy-duty vehicles. There are 165,000 NGVs operating in the U.S. The number of vehicles and public fueling stations continues to grow.

UGI’s own utility fleets in Lancaster, Wilkes-Barre and Williamsport now include cargo vans, connect vans and utility body pickup trucks fueled with CNG. The adoption of NGVs by large companies will help increase the number of public-access refueling stations.

Things to Know:

Dedicated vs. Dual-Fuel:

Dedicated runs solely on natural gas and dual-fuel runs on both natural gas and gasoline.

Cost:

Cost is impacted by your car’s fuel capacity and is around $12,000 – $18,000.

Before Converting:

Make sure there is a public fueling station near you for a personal vehicle (or light duty work trucks under 14,000). If you have natural gas service at your home or business, it might be possible to add a CNG fueling device at your location.

Other Companies Benefitting:

Several widely recognized companies have some of their fleets running on natural gas, including AT&T, Verizon, UPS, Waste Management and Federal Express.
