CNG Vehicles at Work

Making fuel dollars go farther

Gaining traction on and off-road

Since 1985, CNG has been proven to be a safe and reliable fuel option in Ontario. Used extensively in manufacturing plants and warehouses to fuel forklifts, CNG is also widely used by vehicles ranging from ice resurfacers to light, medium and heavy truck fleets.

The growing fleet option

Natural gas trucks and buses match the power and performance of diesel, with ratings of up to 400 hp and 1,450 ft-lb torque, and engine sizes ranging up to just under 12 litres.

  • Sold through dealers with full warranties, parts and service support

Class 8 heavy tractors

CNG tractors can pull up to 32,287 kg (80,000 lb) of Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) and can travel about 1,700 km (1,050 miles) using side- and rear-mounted CNG tanks.

Transit buses

Ten times quieter than diesel buses. Watch CNG in action in Hamilton

Refuse disposal trucks

Quieter operation and lower emissions for urban fleet operation.

Concrete and aggregate trucks

New 12-litre engines provide the horsepower and torque needed to haul full loads of concrete.

Class 7 heavy trucks

CNG fleets offer convenient overnight refuelling for day-shift operations.

Forklift trucks

With no heavy propane tanks to lift, CNG forklifts have fewer WSIB claims associated with their operation. Indoor air quality is also improved.

Shunt trucks

Fleet operators with more than one type of CNG vehicle can achieve economies of scale. Lower the payback on refuelling infrastructure by using both CNG forklifts and shunt trucks.

Return-to-base fleets

Ideal for vehicles that return to a central location for refuelling at the end of the day, CNG is the leading alternative fuel in North America for transit bus fleets and other applications.

Bi-fuel and dual-fuel

Bi-fuel and dual-fuel vehicles, which use both CNG and diesel, increase GVW, extend driving range and allow operation in areas where CNG refuelling options are not yet widely available.

Saving Faromar $5,000 per truck

Faromar Energy Solutions (a division of Faromar Ltd.) is changing over their entire fleet of pickup trucks to bi-fuel capability. Using cleaner, lower cost CNG as the primary fuel for all return-to-base operations saves an average of $5,000 per vehicle per year.

    And the installation of a fast fill CNG fuelling station on site means sales and service staff can quickly fill up each morning rather than stopping en route.

    “Operating on CNG has broad benefits for us because our company promotes environmental solutions and conservation in the agriculture industry – and natural gas burns cleaner. But the bottom line is cost. Gasoline is very expensive and when you save 50% per cent every time you fill up, the CNG systems pay off very quickly.”
