McNeilus Truck & Manufacturing, Inc. has engineered and installed a custom NGEN Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) system for over-the-road trucks owned by Gold Standard Transportation in Chicago, Ill.

The project included the addition of behind-the-cab vertical tanks that significantly increased fuel capacity and traveling distance between fuel stops.

The Gold Standard vertical tank installations were completed at McNeilus’ Chicago branch, where technicians added 20 percent more fuel capacity for vehicles traveling to and from St. Louis, Cincinnati, Cleveland, and other locations in the Midwest. By integrating vertically mounted fuel tanks, the tractor-trailers are able to maintain the required swing clearance needed for operation.
