State of the Union Address: Natural Gas

In the State of the Union Address, President Obama called natural gas the "bridge fuel" to getting the U.S. off of its dependence on foreign oil. His promise to "cut the red tape" on natural gas ensures its future in the U.S. This likely means more businesses will be switching to CNG powered vehicles for their fleets.

In anticipation of an increase in the production and fleet use of American CNG powered vehicles, Fleetwest Transferable Truck Bodies introduces a Durashell 170 tailor-made for CNG pickup trucks.

The custom Durashell 170 is pictured below on a Dodge Ram CNG 2500 pickup truck at last year's Chrysler Fleet Show in Colorado Springs. This version of the Durashell 170 is created with a cut-out and emergency shut-off access for CNG tanks, which take up only 35% of the bed's cargo area.The Durashell maintains its standard features that fleet management want such as plenty of secure cargo space that is easily accessible through side access or rear barn-style doors. Durashell service bodies are made of lightweight fiberglass composite, furthering fuel savings.
