Publicly Accessible, Simple, Safe LNG Dispensing Stations 972662

The state-of-the-art of CNG dispensing has become very transparent to that of gasoline and diesel. However, a significant population of fleet vehicles cannot or will not consider CNG as a viable alternative vehicular fuel because of the restrictions it imposes on range, payload weight or payload space. Another drawback is that CNG fueling stations must be located at or near gas pipelines, leaving large geographical areas inaccessible to CNG vehicles. Many have proposed that LNG minimizes or eliminates the restrictions listed above. Up until recently, LNG vehicle fuel dispensing, although effective, still had not met the transparency test The purpose of this paper is to show that transparency has now been attained; that vehicles are fueling with LNG in very much the same manner as gasoline and diesel.
