ANGI Fueling Station for Central Freight Lines and the Public
Utah’s Questar Fueling has opened a new compressed natural gas fueling facility in San Antonio, Texas. The station at 5348A FM 1346 will serve as may as 60 class-8 natural gas-powered trucks operated by Central Freight Lines, Questar says. Central is projected to use more than 1 million DGEs/diesel-gallon equivalents of natural gas per year.
The majority of the trucks will use a private time-fill facility in which 60 trucks can fill while parked, Questar adds. The remainder will use a six-lane, high-speed-fueling station with public access for anyone driving an NGV.
“Our business is growing because the trucking industry is transitioning to CNG,” Questar GM Carl Galbraith said in a release.
Third of Four for Texas
“This is the third of four CNG-fueling facilities we will have across Texas,” Central president and CEO Don Orr says in the Questar San Antonio announcement. “Questar Fueling is helping to make our transition to natural gas much easier.
“Our commercial-private partnership with the company has resulted in convenient and reliable CNG fueling for our fleet of 170 CNG trucks,” Orr said.
“Fueling with natural gas is also helping us operate more efficiently, reduce pollution and become less dependent on foreign-oil imports as we support our home-state economy.”
