You must plan your trip when driving a CNG vehicle
The average Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) vehicle has a range of only 120-180 miles per tank of fuel, depending on driving conditions. Therefore, when you travel in a CNG vehicle, you must plan your trip so that you can arrive at one of the listed refueling sites during their normal operating hours and before you run out of fuel. Unlike the standard gasoline vehicle, when the CNG vehicle runs out of fuel it must be towed to the closest refueling site.

Therefore, it is imperative that before you start your trip, you must first select the fueling sites you wish to use, call to find out if their station is operational, what their normal operating hours are, and if they will allow you to refuel at their site. The sites listed below are a combination of public and private stations and may not always be open to the general public.

NOTE: Refueling at a fast fill station takes only 3-5 minutes but refueling at a slow fill station can take up to 8 hours to completely fill your tank.
