WOW!!! Already an economy of 18 tons of CO2e with our CNG trucks since 1 January 2016, in addition to hardly any particulate emissions. C.A.T. Inc. is actively contributing to the welfare of all… Indeed, 20 CNG trucks assigned and 78,600 miles since.
The range of the trucks has been confirmed to be 700 miles in good weather and 600 miles in bad weather.
New stations are adding to and improving the existing GAIN station network. Our CNG trucks are used to service our regular customers.
As with all previous arrivals of a new truck series, we need to address some minor technical problems (ex: refrigerator programming, air weight system calibration, Isaac connections, etc.). Corrective measures and procedures are gradually being set up.
- The addition of the Smyrna, GA GAIN station has allowed us to travel the NC to TX corridor several times with CNG trucks.
- Only one CNG related on road breakdown (broken release valve of a tank): repairs to the
truck were done in NY, and it was back on the road the next day.
- In less than a week, truckers are comfortable with the new language used to measure the fuel level in the tanks: PSI pressures depending on the ambient temperature.
- Our CNG trucks generate a lot of curiosity and interest, CNG truck drivers are being questioned everywhere they go.
