 How Much Can Your Company Save?

This is our most commonly asked question and can be answered quickly, if you know your fleet vehicle information (vehicle MPG, monthly fuel cost, miles driven per month/year, etc.).
If your company is like most, your vehicles are averaging more than 180 miles per day.  At that level the fuel savings from a CNG conversion can be astronomical!  Depending on which vehicles you have in your fleet, the savings could be enough to pay for every conversion in the first year.

Fleet Conversion Scenario #1

For a quick savings calculation, we will use a fleet of twenty vans. Each van averages 180 miles a day and gets 15 miles per gallon (MPG).

180 miles ÷ 15 MPG = 12 gallons of gasoline per day.

12 gallons of gasoline × $3.55 a gallon = $42.60 per day.

$42.60 × 20 vehicles = $852.00 per day in gasoline cost.

Vehicles Running On CNG

180 miles ÷ 15 MPG = 12 gallons of CNG per day.

12 gallons of gasoline × $1.25 a gallon = $15.00 per day.

$15.00 × 20 vehicles = $300.00 per day in CNG cost.

THAT IS A SAVINGS OF $552.00 PER DAY WHEN RUNNING ON CNG INSTEAD OF GASOLINE!!

Take the savings of $552 running on CNG

× 5 days a week = $2,760.00 SAVINGS PER WEEK!

× 52 weeks a year = $143,520.00 PER YEAR!

Fleet Conversion Scenario #2

If scenario #1 doesn’t get you excited about converting your vehicles to CNG, let’s take these numbers to the next level.

Take the same van with same mileage, but let’s put in a CNG pump at your business.  You can fill up your vehicle with CNG at your place of business for as low as $.74/gal. (this includes the cost of fuel & electricity to run the pump).

180 miles ÷ 15 MPG = 12 gallons of gasoline per day.

12 gallons of gasoline × $3.55 a gallon = $42.60 per day.

$42.60 × 20 vehicles = $852.00 per day in gasoline cost.

Vehicles Running On CNG Pumped At Your Location

180 miles ÷ 15 MPG = 12 gallons of CNG per day.

12 gallons of gasoline × $.74 a gallon = $8.88 per day.

$8.88 × 20 vehicles = $177.60 per day in CNG cost.

THAT IS A SAVINGS OF $674.40 PER DAY WHEN RUNNING ON CNG INSTEAD OF GASOLINE!!

Take the savings of $674.40 running on CNG

× 5 days a week = $3,372.00 SAVINGS PER WEEK!

× 52 weeks a year = $175,344.00 PER YEAR!


*MOST OF OUR CONVERSION CUSTOMERS EXPERIENCE UP TO A 20% INCREASE IN CNG FUEL MILEAGE AS WELL!  This is not guaranteed by the manufacturer, but we convert hundreds of vehicles a year and most vehicles do see a substantial increase in fuel mileage.

This Can’t Work For Us. We Rotate Our Vehicles Too Often

t
You may be saying to yourself, “this is all well and good, but we rotate our vehicles out of service too quickly for this to be beneficial for us”.
If so, then you’re going to love this!
Our fleet program includes the ability to transfer the CNG system to future vehicles.  We have customers who sell/trade their vehicles every 18-24 months.  If this is your situation, we have two great options.  The first is to leave the CNG system on the vehicle and sell it as an upgrade OR you can have us remove the CNG system and reinstall it on your next vehicle.  Most of the time we can install your CNG system on a different make and model of vehicle.

We recently removed a CNG system off of a 2010, V6 Toyota Tacoma pick-up and transferred the entire system to a 2014, V8 Ford F-150.  All the major components were transferred and we were able to upgrade the CNG fuel injectors from a V6 to a V8.
