The CNG West Fueling Station at 5115 Krieger Court, which is the fourth and largest CNG fuelling site in the city, has been the initiative of the City and Central Ohio Transit Authority.

The fast-fill station, like the other three CNG filling stations, is open to public and private fleets and individual use.

Columbus has 244 CNG vehicles in service that use almost 500,000 gges (or gasoline gallon equivalents) a year.

“CNG reduces carbon emissions by approximately eighty percent and produces less greenhouse gases than traditional fuel. Since utilizing CNG as a fuel source in 2010, the City of Columbus has saved taxpayers approximately $3 million in fuel costs,” said Columbus Finance and Management Director Joe Lombardi.
