Westport CNG Conversions Paring Fuel Bill by Estimated $400,000

Westport is spreading the word that AAA Oklahoma is saving serious money by operating 23 of its 56 vehicles on compressed natural gas. It’s not unusual to see CNG-fueled F-250s servicing gasoline- or diesel-powered vehicles in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, according to the Westport blog.

AAA Oklahoma has a fleet of 23 natural gas vehicles, Westport reports, including this CNG-powered  Ford F-650.

Fleet manager Dana Storey says the association saves around $400,000 annually on fuel by using natural gas vehicles, Westport reports.

AAA Oklahoma started converting its fleet to natural gas in 2011. Today ten of the fleet’s vehicles are bi-fuel Ford F-250s featuring the Westport WiNG Power System with service bodies, operating on CNG and gasoline, and twelve are dedicated Westport WiNG Ford F-650s operating solely on CNG.

Savings of Up to $1,600 per Truck, per Month

Storey says the current monthly fuel savings range from $1,400 to $1,500 per truck on the bi-fuel F-250s and $1,500 to $1,600 per truck on the dedicated F-650s, Westport says.

The F-650s are used for towing and light service needs while the F-250s with service bodies are used by AAA’s mobile battery technicians to carry a selection of automotive batteries.
