NAT G Dual Fuel Program Reduces Carbon Footprint for Class 7/8 Trucks
Desel-powered Class 7/8 trucks can reduce their carbon footprint by reducing the consumption of diesel fuel — displacing it (up to 60%) with CNG/RNG fuel. This is done by converting existing diesel fleet trucks to run on both diesel and CNG/RNG. Nat G also works with natural gas suppliers to optimize fleet use of natural gas.
Dual Fuel diesel/CNG-RNG systems for Class 7/8 trucks offer key advantages over diesel only:
- Natural Gas is a domestically produced alternative fuel that reduces our dependence on foreign oil sources that are impacted by world economic and political instability.
- Reduces fleet operating costs since CNG costs less than diesel.
- Enables fleet operators to take advantage of alternative fuel incentives offered by state/federal programs.
- Can extend the range of long-haul Class 7/8 Trucks by adding fuel capacity.
- The comprehensive Nat G program includes both vehicle Dual Fuel and CNG fueling infrastructure to support Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) objectives that an increasing number of fleets are focusing on.
- Reduces carbon footprint of TODAY’s fleet trucks, especially by the use of RNG. No need to wait for battery powered technology that is likely years out for Class 7/8 long haul trucks.
