“One of CDP’s priorities is to see the rapid and widespread adoption of CNG vehicles, both for fleets and for individuals,” CDP president Kevin Fern says in a release. “Offering the vehicle, retrofit and fuel appliance at the same time reduces costs and complexity while ordering.

“This makes the decision much easier for fleets who are concerned about purchasing and using a dedicated CNG vehicle, in locations where CNG fueling isn’t readily available,” he said.

8.5 GGE

CDP uses lightweight carbon fiber fuel cylinders from Utah’s Optimum Composites for the CNG Cruze, which has capacity for 8.5 gasoline gallon equivalents. The firm uses Blackstone CNG regulators and Bosch injectors. “All other components are CDP-sourced and built for CDP as CDP technology,” Fern told F&F.
