OKLAHOMA CITY — Love’s is now offering compressed natural gas or CNG at its travel stop in Willis, Texas, located on I-45, Exit 95.
Love’s reported this is the chain’s first “Texas Triangle” location and the first of 10 stations to open in this phase of the company’s plan to offer “Fast-Fill CNG” at more of its travel stops across the country.
“Willis is in a location that’s heavily traveled by professional fleets and light-duty vehicles, so this location makes sense. It’s the first station completed in the Texas Triangle, designed to make travel between Houston, Dallas and San Antonio using CNG feasible,” said Bill Cashmareck, general manager of NG at Love’s.
“We will open several more Love’s Fast-Fill CNG locations in additional areas to complete the triangle, opening up a corridor between the three cities,” he added.
Love’s at Willis currently is selling CNG for $1.99 a gallon.
The station will host an event to celebrate the addition of CNG on Tuesday, March 4 at 11 a.m., involving CNG customers including Dart Transit Co., according to a Love’s news release.
Love’s said its Fast-Fill CNG will be similar to drivers filling up with Love’s diesel or DEF. “Love’s CNG stations are designed to deliver a fill rate of greater than 10 gallons per minute in all lanes, meaning a driver can fill a 100 gallon equivalent tank in 10 minutes or less,” stated the news release.
