Love's opens sixth Love's Fast-Fill CNG location along Interstate 40

OKLAHOMA CITY, November 21, 2015 – Professional drivers traveling the 1,000-mile stretch of Interstate 40 between Albuquerque, New Mexico, and West Memphis, Arkansas, now have the option of filling up with compressed natural gas (CNG) at six Love’s Travel Stops on the popular thoroughfare. The opening of the new Love’s in Albuquerque along Interstate 40, Exit 149, marks Love’s newest location to offer Love’s Fast-Fill CNG for heavy-duty trucks and a CNG fueling option for motorists.

"Love's now has a total of 16 locations offering Love's Fast-Fill CNG, and this is our first location with the alternative fuel offering in New Mexico," said Greg Love, co-CEO of Love's. "Love’s has operated in Albuquerque proudly for more than 30 years. Our new store will have the same excellent customer service and our newest amenities."

According to the Alternative Fuels Data Center, Love’s is the fourth facility in Albuquerque to offer CNG and the seventh in the state. In addition to Albuquerque, Love’s Fast-Fill CNG locations along Interstate 40 include West Memphis, Arkansas; Webbers Falls, Oklahoma; two locations in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Amarillo, Texas. The existing Love’s Travel Stop in Williams, Arizona, will begin offering fast-fill CNG later this year, expanding Love’s network of locations along Interstate 40 offering CNG to seven.

The new store also offers a variety of services for professional drivers, including gourmet coffee, fresh fruit, gift items, name-brand electronics and Carl’s Jr. and Green Burrito restaurants. The 24/7 travel stop features seven showers, 65 parking spaces, RFID cardless fueling, CAT scales and a Love’s Truck Tire Care center. For a limited time, professional drivers can earn up to five points with their “My Love Rewards” loyalty cards at all Love’s locations.
