Love's Travel Stops opens seventh Fast-Fill CNG location on I-40

Love's Fast-Fill CNG spans nearly 1,400 miles of I-40

OKLAHOMA CITY, January 26, 2016 – Professional drivers and motorists traveling from Tennessee to California on Interstate 40 now have access to compressed natural gas (CNG) at seven Love’s Travel Stops. The travel stop company’s seventh location with Love’s Fast-Fill CNG for heavy-duty trucks and a CNG fueling option for motorists is now available at its existing travel stop in Williams, Arizona.

"Our locations are strategically placed on I-40 spanning from West Memphis, Arkansas, to Williams, Arizona, to make it easier for over-the-road drivers to run on CNG," said Bill Cashmareck, Love’s general manager of natural gas. "Our customers can now travel nearly 1,400 miles along one of the nation’s major thoroughfares and have convenient and reliable access to seven Love’s Fast-Fill CNG locations."

Love’s operates 10 additional fast-fill CNG locations on other major interstates, combining for a total of 17 fast-fill CNG locations. Fast-fill CNG will be available at Love’s existing travel stop in Guthrie, Oklahoma, along I-35 this spring.

"The demand for CNG has remained steady," said Cashmareck. "We will continue to search for new areas where CNG is feasible so we can give our customers more access to the financially stable fueling alternative."

With Love’s Travel Stops located directly on interstates and highways, drivers have easy access to CNG adjacent to stores with all the amenities necessary to support their needs, such as parking, restaurants, showers and other driver services. CNG is available in-lane along with diesel and diesel exhaust fuel (DEF). It offers 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. Drivers also have the benefit of earning points on their My Love Rewards cards when purchasing CNG.
