For those interested in switching their diesel truck fleets to CNG, SoCalGas is continuing its no-cost Natural Gas Vehicle Truck Loan Program. Through a short-term loan of up to 14-days, customers can test drive the vehicles while experiencing CNG fueling at no cost. SoCalGas hopes to show the similarity between diesel and natural gas vehicles in terms of drivability, power, range, and fueling. Some benefits of switching to natural gas include fuel savings and air pollution reductions. Typically, CNG is 30% to 50% cheaper than diesel and is produced in the U.S.
There are four truck models available through this loan program, including a 16-foot Greenkraft Box Truck, 26-foot CNG Class B Box Truck, Single Axle CNG Tractor, and Tandem Axle CNG Tractor. The loan program is available for those located within SoCalGas or SDG&E service territories. For more details and program rules read the summary below.
