Similar to refilling your gasoline tank, you attach the nozzle from a designated CNG dispenser at a public station. Most public stations are fast-fill, which can refuel your tank in about the same amount of time it takes filling up a vehicle gasoline tank.

It is easy to refuel an NGV and it is very close to using a traditional gas station. CNG dispensers accept most major credit cards and the filling time is similar to utilizing a gas pump. There usually is not an attendant. Before starting, check out the dispenser video to ensure proper use.

A PIN will be issued for fueling and you can use it now and for future fueling.

  3. Make sure that the nozzle arrows are properly pointing.

  5. Lock the nozzle by rotating it properly.
