I recently purchased a 2012 Isuzu NPR with a CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) conversion for my fleet. The CNG Isuzu was a replacement for an Isuzu diesel in our fleet. The fuel cost to run the CNG versus the diesel is roughly 60 percent less. We pay for this vehicle in the fuel savings alone! Our drivers state that when they have a load over 10,000 pounds, they prefer the CNG because it runs clean and steady compared to the diesel. There is no loss of power with the CNG but I think people may confuse the CNG with a Hybrid (Gas/Electric).

We did a test on the first 3,000 miles with our 2012 Isuzu NPR CNG versus our 2005 Isuzu NPR Diesel and the results were remarkable. Where we would typically spend $108 per tank in diesel cost, we spent $41 per tank in CNG for the same route.

One of our fears about obtaining a CNG vehicle was that there would not be enough CNG fueling stations in our service areas. We have found 44 filling stations in Los Angeles County, 36 in Orange County, 21 in Riverside County, and 25 in San Diego County. We use Android Smart Phones with an application called “CNG Fuel Finder” that directs us to the CNG fueling stations in the area we are in and they are usually within 9 miles distance.

Since we completed our trial on the first CNG, we have now purchased 2 other CNG vehicles and are having significant fuel savings. Another benefit to the CNG vehicles is the use of the carpool lane as we applied through the state of California for an alternative fuels white sticker allowing the vehicle in this lane with no other passengers. In addition to saving 60% in fuel savings, we are also saving 18 percent in our payroll costs due to the time saved using the carpool lane. This helps our bottom line and also helps us to deliver to the end user faster.

I strongly recommend the purchase of CNG vehicles to lower our carbon footprint as well as lessen the need of foreign oils. I will no longer buy gas/diesel vehicles as the CNG cannot be beat!

If anyone would like to ask me any questions regarding this article my email address is jgriffis@integritylogistics.net. I would be glad to help Tom’s Truck Center help educate anyone with hesitations because KC and Clyde have changed our company’s bottom line by convincing us to take a chance.

To whom it may concern

Ware Disposal has purchased several natural gas (CNG) powered Isuzu NPR's from Clyde Stires/ Toms Truck Center over the past year.

Each of these vehicles plays the different role in our fleet, bin trucks, flatbeds, etc. Thus far, the performance of the vehicle has been outstanding. The bodies were removed from our existing vehicles and transferred to the new vehicles, which required pto integration and different fuel tank locations. This was accomplished seamlessly. Our vehicles were delivered with 24.5 GGE capacity and they operate 8-10 hours a day, 6 days a week.

Our organization has been utilizing natural gas for the past several years in our heavy-duty fleet (60+ CNG vehicles) and we are pleased to have been able to transition our medium-duty fleet to natural gas as well. We have been well aware of the fuel savings, but also our real world experience with natural gas vehicles has been that these type of vehicles require far less maintenance than diesel powered vehicles.

Our decision to transition into more natural gas vehicles has proven economical, reliable, and environmentally responsible.

I just wanted to take a minute and Thank you for the Great Job you did helping us with the acquisition of our 2012 Natural Gas Isuzu Truck. The first thing that you did was approach us with the opportunity and information about the program the State of California was offering. It was clear you were passionate about the need to use alternative forms of energy and as we have since discussed this is what ultimately convinced me to purchase the truck.

The truck runs great and we have the Natural Gas Stations dialed in to our route. You patiently helped us every step of the way and the service could not have been any better. We are saving money and when we get ready to purchase another truck I will be contacting you!
