TruStar Energy Opens SW Florida's First Public CNG Fueling Station in Fort Myers
TruStar Energy has opened a company-owned public CNG fueling station in Fort Myers, Florida. Conveniently located near I-75, the fast-fill station is capable of fueling several hundred vehicles a day. In addition to support vehicles in the Fort Myers area, the station also serves as a midpoint between Tampa and Fort Lauderdale for fleets travelling the I-75 corridor.
“Florida already has a high volume of CNG vehicles on the road today, and even with low diesel prices, we continue to see more fleets switching to CNG from diesel,” saidAdam Comora, President of TruStar Energy. “Close to several major fleets, as well as a heavy traffic corridor, our new Fort Myers station will be a valuable and productive resource for businesses in the area.”
Last year, TruStar Energy embarked on an accelerated strategy to open company-owned public CNG stations along high-traffic U.S. corridors. The company opened TruStar Energy-owned public fueling stations in Orlando, Florida; Tulsa, Oklahoma; Houston, Texas; and Lafayette, Louisiana.
Designed for future expansion and to provide easy access for commercial fleets, the new Fort Myers TruStar Energy CNG station has four traffic lanes and two dual-hose fast-fill fueling pumps. The station accepts commercial fuel cards, as well as all major credit cards.
Able to dispense 11.6 GGE per minute of fuel, the station currently includes two Ariel JGQ300—250 HP compressors, each generating 736 scfm of gas; one PBS dryer and two ANGI fast-fill dispensers.
