Freightliner: LA to DC on CNG

May 20, 2012 in CNG, NGVs by Rich Piellisch  |  No Comments

A Freightliner Cascadia 113-inch BBC day cab tractor powered by the new Cummins Westport ISX12 G natural gas engine took off from ACT Expo Thursday, headed east on the manufacturer’s first-ever heavy duty U.S. crossing –fueled all the way by public-access CNG.

“We wanted to show the status of natural gas infrastructure,” Daimler Trucks marketing strategy GM David Hames said Wednesday. The truck will stop at roughly 700- to 750-mile intervals to fuel – “entirely on public fueling stations,” he said.
