How to Refuel
Refuelling with natural gas and biomethane is straightforward and safe, and usually takes no longer than filling up a diesel vehicle. Drivers should be given training on how to refuel, including working with compressed gases (CNG/ Bio-CNG) and cold temperatures (LNG/ Bio-LNG). Natural gas is lighter than air so leakages vent to the atmosphere rather than pooling on the ground, giving a safety advantage over conventional liquid fuels.
Where to Refuel
Refuelling can either take place at your own depot if you have a refuelling station installed, or at a commercial refuelling facility. For more information on installing a depot refuelling station see Getting Connected. To find your nearest refuelling station use the Gas Vehicle Hub map.
Cost of Refuelling
CNG is available at a cheaper price than diesel, in part because of a preferential rate of fuel duty. Like any fuel, the cost of CNG is variable so please contact a gas supplier for the latest pricing. See Costs and Emissions for information on gas vehicle total cost of ownership.
