CNG Tank Fill Up Animation

09.29.14

You've probably heard this from some of your fleet partners: "Why can't I get a consistent, full tank from my CNG dispenser?"  And, as you probably know, the answer is very complicated because the fill depends on fill rate and temperature, among other variables.  To help make sense of this complicated phenomenon, we've created an interactive animation:

Now available on the Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC) website. The animation lets you see what's going on inside a CNG tank at various fill rates and temperatures, and allows you to vary these parameters as you watch.
