Products and Services
CNG One Source provides feasibility studies, conversions, refueling stations, service, maintenance, and training.
The process: Because not all vehicles are eligible to be converted per EPA or CARB regulations, CNG One Source will provide you with data sheets. We can assess your fleet and determine which vehicles are eligible for conversion. We will ask you some basic questions such as the make and model of the vehicles, fuel type, annual fuel use and mpg. We will also ask you questions about how many drivers you have, how often you refuel, whether you lease or own your vehicles, and the vehicle's year of retire. Following a preliminary assessment, if it is determined that conversion is a cost effective option, we will request additional information such as VIN numbers and evaporation codes.
If your fleet has known and dedicated routes, you may prefer to convert your vehicles to run on CNG only. This is known as a dedicated CNG system. If your route varies, and refueling is a concern, you may wish to opt for a bi-fuel conversion. Bi-fuel vehicles can run on either CNG or gasoline. CNG vehicles require a CNG fuel system and fuel tank to be installed on the vehicle, along with other modifications.
Assessing the fleet also prepares us to size your refueling station. Unlike gasoline or diesel, fuel is not stored in underground tanks. Fuel is created by compressing natural gas directly from a utility pipeline. Therefore, the compressor is "sized" according to the fleet or public's needs. Too small of a compressor could result in unusually slow refueling.

Typically the CNG fuel tanks are the most expensive part of the conversion. However, CNG tanks have a 15 or 20 year life. They must be inspected every three years or 36,000 miles, and after any accident. The tank may be removed and inspected, and installed in another CNG vehicle. Please note: It is very important that your tank is inspected by a qualified CSA inspector before installation. Tanks may incur damage such as delamination, impact, and ultraviolet radiation. Type 4 tanks are made of a carbon composite and must be shielded from weather and UV rays, even while in storage. Tanks must meet ANSI NGV2 and DOT FMVSS 304 standards must always be mounted and shielded per NFPA 52.
