‘Same Purchase Price as Diesel’
Quantum Fuel Systems and U.S. Gain Clean Fuel – suppliers of lightweight CNG cylinders and onboard CNG fuel assemblies and CNG fueling stations, respectively, announced a supply and marketing alliance to package and place CNG trucks “through existing dealership relationships at the same purchase price as diesel trucks.”
“This program gives the fleet and truck operators the opportunity to defer paying any upfront capital requirements,” said president and CEO Brian Olson.
The program is to initially include a 123-DGE Quantum back-of-cab system on a Kenworth 680 truck. One payment plan would allow fleets to amortize the additional cost of the CNG fuel system via a CNG fuel contract with Gain. The CNG would be priced as low as $1.99 per gallon.
Via a second option, the customer would pay the incremental cost at the time of the vehicle purchase and would buy fuel from Gain at preferred pricing levels. “In both cases, the customer can lock in a low CNG fuel price for up to five years,” the companies said here yesterday.
Gain is at Booth 750. Quantum is at 1527.
