Love’s Opens 17th CNG Station, 7th On I-40
Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, headquartered in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is closing the gaps for CNG refueling on Interstate 40 (I-40) between Tennessee and California with the opening of its 7th Compressed Natural gas (CNG) station at its existing travel stop in Williams, Arizona. The station, with Love’s Fast-Fill CNG for heavy-duty trucks and a CNG fueling option for motorists, now operates 17 CNG filling stations.
“Our locations are strategically placed on I-40 spanning from West Memphis, Arkansas, to Williams, Arizona, to make it easier for over-the-road drivers to run on CNG,” said Bill Cashmareck, Love’s general manager of natural gas. “Our customers can now travel nearly 1,400 miles along one of the nation’s major thoroughfares and have convenient and reliable access to seven Love’s Fast-Fill CNG locations.”
Love’s operates 10 additional fast-fill CNG locations on other major interstates, combining for a total of 17 fast-fill CNG locations. Fast-fill CNG will be available at Love’s existing travel stop in Guthrie, Oklahoma, along I-35 this spring.
“The demand for CNG has remained steady,” said Cashmareck. “We will continue to search for new areas where CNG is feasible so we can give our customers more access to the financially stable fueling alternative.”
With Love’s Travel Stops located directly on interstates and highways, drivers have easy access to CNG adjacent to stores with all the amenities necessary to support their needs, such as parking, restaurants, showers and other driver services. CNG is available in-lane along with diesel and diesel exhaust fuel (DEF). It offers a fill rate of greater than 10 gallons per minute, meaning a driver can fill a 100 gallon equivalent tank in 10 minutes or less.
