CNG Service Truck

The State of Oregon's 2014 F-450 service body truck was specifically built for its facilities operations specialist. The compressed natural gas (CNG) bi-fuel truck is used to maintain 43 remote fueling sites scattered across the state, lots of which require driving through mountainous terrain, according to Brian King, fleet and parking services manager for the Dept. of Administrative Services.

Fleet planned to keep the truck for 15 years or more and wanted to reduce its environmental impact during its service life. Staff calculated that the $16,700 CNG conversion cost would pay for itself in about four to six years, depending on gas prices, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
