Gain said that CNG stations in West Burlington, Iowa and Wood River, Ill. would add the Gain Clean Fuel brand and “be converted to provide access for other carriers and the general public.”
Gain said at Fleets & Fuels press time
that it’s opened a new station in partnership
with O Ring CNG Fuel Systems in DuBois, Pa.
The station is off of Interstate 80 northeast of Pittsburgh.
A third Gain Clean Fuel-Great River CNG outlet will be built in Easton, Pa. next year, likewise for public access.
‘On Significant Trucking Routes’
“These three new stations are on significant trucking routes and will provide significant advantages to W.W. Transport and our other partner carrier fleets,” U.S. Gain GM Bill Renz said in a release.
W.W. Transport has approximately 80 trucks operating on CNG and plans to expand to 120 CNG trucks by year-end, Gain says.
APG for W.W. Transport’s Dual Fuel Trucks
The CNG fleet includes approximately 40 dedicated-CNG Macks and Peterbilts, says W.W. Transport president Kyle Weuve, and 40 Freightliner Cascadia trucks with diesel engines modified for CNG-diesel dual fuel operation by Clarke Power Services using equipment from APG, the American Power Group.
The 40 trucks on order include 15 dedicated-CNG Peterbilts and 25 Freightliner Cascadias to be modified with the APG hardware, Weuve told F&F.
W.W. Transport operates about 400 trucks in all, he says.
All Gain Clean Fuel CNG stations provide easy-access, fast-fill capabilities, Gain says, and are open for use by other fleets and the general public. They accept fleet cards for driver convenience “and have proven reliability to ensure that fleets have a consistent fuel source.”
