Good move Sysco and a good corporate example. I love my CNG car and I appreciate
the opportunity to buy as few gallons of gas as possible from the middle east. I
feel patriotic every time I fill up.
it sounds to good to be true, better check your facts first, 1 gallon of CNG
will not go as far as 50 gallons of diesel. Lets assume that the truck gets 8
mpg on diesel that would be 400 miles. You are going to try and convince me that
CNG gets 400 miles per gallon?
To H. Beckett: You're right and I'm having it corrected. The 50-1 is not MPG,
but rather the amount of space it occupies in the tank because it's compressed.
So you could go 50 times as far on the tank size, but it doesn't translate
per/gallon.Thanks for pointing it out.
There was an article in SL Trib that said if we converted 5% of fleet vehicles
to CNG, we would put $1.5 billion dollars in the US economy instead of sending
that money to countries like Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and other big oil
countries. Great job Sysco! Thanks for leading the way!
