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.
