Love’s Travel Stops to Open Fast-Fill CNG Locations Along I-40

The network will stretch from Amarillo, Texas, to Barstow, Calif.
May 7, 2014

​OKLAHOMA CITY – Love’s Travel Stops will introduce fast-fill compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling capabilities for heavy-duty trucks and a CNG fueling option for passenger vehicles at travel stops in Albuquerque, N.M., and Williams, Ariz. The locations will be the first public-access travel stops to offer CNG along a 960-mile stretch of I-40 between Amarillo, Texas, and Barstow, Calif.

“With our growing fast-fill CNG network, Love’s will be able to offer customers convenient accessibility from Oklahoma City to the West Coast because of this partnership,” said Bill Cashmareck, general manager of natural gas at Love’s, in a press release. “Love’s in-lane CNG will be a reliable and cost-effective full-service solution for motorists and fleets who want to use their existing fueling cards and also need diesel for their refrigerated trailers.”

The announcement follows an agreement between Love’s and Seaboard Foods, an integrated food company with a refrigerated foods transportation division, to expand Love’s Fast-Fill CNG offerings into new parts of the United States.

Love’s Fast-Fill CNG stations are designed to deliver a fill rate of greater than 10 gallons per minute, meaning a driver can fill a 100-gallon equivalent tank in 10 minutes or less. Love’s previously announced expansion of its Love’s Fast-Fill CNG network at 11 travel stops across Texas and Oklahoma and an additional location in Burbank, Ohio.
