RIVERSIDE, CA – The City of Riverside, Calif., took delivery of a new compressed natural gas (CNG)-powered multi-compartment mobile refueling truck. This California Air Resources Board (CARB)- and Department of Transportation (DOT)-certified truck replaces a 1989 diesel-powered International fuel truck and will have the ability to fuel gasoline, E-85, propane autogas (LPG), and ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD), according to Martin Bowman, fleet operations manager.

“We still have a few things remaining to do before it goes into service, such as [install a] camera system, [receive] in-service training, and [wait for] CARB permit decals, but we’re expecting the vehicle to be in service in a couple weeks,” according Bowman. He added that the camera system is being installed today.

The vehicle, which cost $451,546, was funded by the City of Riverside and partially by the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC).

The City fleet, which ranked No. 1 of the Government Green Fleets for 2012, maintains 248 CNG, 92 electric, 28 LPG, 2 hydrogen, 76 E-85, and 104 hybrid vehicles, including police units, out of a total fleet of 1,705 units. The City owns and operates a publicly accessible alternative fuel station that dispenses CNG, LPG, and hydrogen to both City and public vehicles. In addition, there are 98 CNG time-fill stations that are used to fill the City fleet each night, Bowman said.

DUI or Driving Under the Influence (sometimes called DWI or Driving While Intoxicated) is a criminal offense in most states (most countries, actually). The substance can be alcohol or drugs, which is why it's not merely called "drunk driving" anymore.
