NASA Fleet Reduced Petroleum Fuel Use by 62%

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has replaced two-thirds of its fleet with vehicles that run on cleaner fuels, including biofuels and electricity, and is now working on further expanding electrification.


Natural Gas Utility Tests Larger Trailers

Fairbanks Natural Gas in Alaska is upgrading to larger trailers to transport liquefied natural gas to its customers. The utility first ran a pilot program using the custom-made trailer last fall, which has a 13,000-gallon capacity and can hold 30% more gas than traditional LNG trailers.

Is cheaper even the issue?


Alternative Fuels in the Age of Cheap Oil

The slide in the price of diesel fuel over the past two years has complicated the decision to switch to alternative fuels for many fleets. But is cheap oil even the real issue?

Natural gas offers reduced emissions and a more affordable fuel choice. This channel covers compressed natural gas vehicle conversions, liquefied natural gas as a fuel source, fuel storage, bi-fuel vehicles, natural gas buses and transit vehicles, technologies used in natural gas fueling systems, and fleets converting their vehicles to this fuel source.
