Penske disclosed its plans to start with 100 compressed natural gas trucks for lease and rental at ACT Expo 2013 in Washington, D.C. (F&F, June 29).

The growing fleet of natural gas-powered Penske trucks is outfitted with differing CNG fuel cylinder arrays.

‘Whatever Their Needs Are’

The Cascadia tractors for rental, for example, have a 40-diesel-gallon-equivalent rail-mounted tank and a back-of-cab assembly holding an additional 75 GG for a total of 115 DGEs, says fuels and environmental affairs VP Drew Cullen.

“For lease customers we spec it for whatever their needs are,” he told F&F.

Within its five regions, Penske is positioning the rental trucks “where the density of fueling infrastructure is sufficient,” he adds.
