Revolution Station with Bauer and Ariel Compression, TGT Dispensers

Revolution CNG is spreading the word that it’s begun fueling vehicles at a new station in its hometown of Paso Robles, Calif. Revolution built the 3G CNG facility for Paso Robles Waste & Recycling, which is converting its fleet to compressed natural gas. Time-fill posts are functioning now and a public-access twin-hose fast-fill dispenser is to begin operating in the coming weeks.

The station has a redundant compressor system including a Bauer C-25.0 and an Ariel EA 125/4 via JW Power, designed to provide both time fill and fast fill, says Revolution CNG co-owner Mata Iaia.

A Tulsa Gas Technologies dispenser has two hoses, one with a transit-capable nozzle. The station has a BroadLux/Fuelforce card reader which will accept all major credit and fleet cards, and a Xebec gas dryer.

A second dispenser can be installed when demand warrants. “Everything has been planned and designed for future growth and expansion,” Iaia says. She told F&F that the Paso Robles station is “a missing link,” filling the CNG fueling gap along Highway 101 between Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Paso Robles Waste Has Committed to CNG

Besides representing Bauer, JW Power and TGT, Revolution CNG maintains natural gas fueling stations, with clients including Hearst Castle with its fleet of CNG visitor buses, and the University of California, Santa Barbara. Taking advantage of the new 3G CNG station, Revolution has acquired a new bi-fuel Chevy Silverado 2500 pickup with Impco CNG installation.

Paso Robles Waste has six new Autocar Xpeditor trucks running on CNG. “Going forward, all of our diesel vehicles will be replaced by CNG vehicles,” says co-owner Ian Hoover. Three affiliate companies operate a total of 22 refuse and roll-off trucks, he says.
