CNG notes from Pete Varney

Posted by Morgan White on February 18, 2020

1.    Would the University be willing to convert some of their vehicle fleet to CNG? If so, how many?
a.    The fleet is managed at the department/college level. Each unit purchases their own vehicles. F&S would be a prime entity willing to acquire CNG vehicles as part of a normal replacement cycle. Perhaps 8-12 vehicles annually.
2.    What are the pros and cons of using CNG in campus trucks vs cars?
a.    The use of CNG is more focused on how the vehicle is used rather than type. Most “cars” are used for travel out of the local area where CNG fueling would pose challenges. Most F&S “trucks” are exclusively used on campus where CNG fueling would be centralized
