How is fueling a natural gas vehicle different than fueling a gasoline or diesel vehicle?
With fast fill dispensers, like those located at the City of Hamilton’s CNG Fueling Station, there is very little difference between fueling a natural gas vehicle versus a gasoline or diesel vehicle. Compressed natural gas (CNG) dispenses into vehicles in much the same way as gasoline or diesel, taking about three to seven minutes to fill a tank. The fueling station and dispenser also look about the same as a typical fueling station; however, the nozzle and receptacle are designed a bit differently and will only dispense into a CNG tank.
