In 2013, Natural Gas Experts in Texas and Louisiana, launched their DuraDrive
bi-fuel for fleet trucks. Now they have
announced that they have delivered the first natural gas half-ton pickup
trucks, according to Hard Working Trucks.
Nat G CNG Solutions delivered 2015 model vehicles to a local business in
Houston and San Antonio with a General Motors’ 5.3 liter direct injection
engine. This allowed for each fleet to
be upgraded to run on either natural gas or gasoline using the DuraDrive
natural gas system. During the testing,
the DuraDrive set a record for efficiency on an eight-cylinder natural gas
truck by achieving 23 miles per gallon.
The CEO of one of the company’s that took part in the testing stated, “It’s
just a no brainer, the savings are incredible,” in reference to their gas bill.

trucks and ideal for continuous fuel and maintenance fleet savings. Load'N'Go
truck bodies are completely transferable, on and off a pickup truck in minutes

double-locking side compartments. Call your Fleetwest representative toll-free
