A new mobile fueling technology developed by GTI debuted at the 2012 Republican and Democratic National Conventions. The FuelMule™ is a mobile fast-fill compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station that gives NGV fleets fueling capability at their home base—or anywhere—without the need to build a fueling station. GTI has worked with Ultimate CNG to bring the technology to fruition and help reduce barriers to market entry for NGVs.
This technology helps to overcome the capital investment issues associated with building new fueling infrastructure, and can service an entire fleet or multiple fleets quickly and easily, saving significant time and money.
Light-weight, carbon composite tanks provide on-board storage capacity of 700 DGE, and loading can take as little as two hours. The CNG compressor used to fill the truck is driven by the same dedicated natural gas engine that is used to power the vehicle. It can fuel 35 to 50 medium- to heavy-duty vehicles, and has the ability to fill two vehicles simultaneously.
