Manhattan Beer recently announced that it has added 35 CNG-fueled Volvo VNM 200 model tractors to its fleet (F&F, October 27).

MFS operates a CNG “pod,” also known as a virtual pipeline. The pod is filled daily at the Elizabethtown Gas CNG station in Union and the fuel is trucked some 36 miles to Suffern.

‘A Great Convenience’

“Simply not having our drivers drive off-route to fuel our tractors is a great convenience for us. MFS has been reliable and professional from the start,” Manhattan Beer fleet manager Juan Corcino says in an MFS release.

“Our system is proven to be reliable and consistent,” MFS sales director Gary Trombino says in his company’s announcement. “What makes our system unique is that it is scalable,” he says.

Equipment from Argentina via California

“MFS will deliver CNG via one of its mobile fueling vehicles with built in compression and dispenser capable of on-site fueling, with capacity ranging from 700 gasoline gallon equivalents to 1,600 GGE in a single trip.”

“We go up to Suffern and wet-hose Manhattan Beer’s fleet,” MFS sales director Gary Trombino told F&F.

The pods are filled to 3,600 psi.

The pods, built with equipment from Galileo in Argentina, are engineered by California’s Clean Fuel Connection and delivered, replete with dispensers, to MFS, Trombino says.

A second is nearing deployment by MFS soon, In Pennsylvania.
