Excellance Finishes CNG Emergency Vehicles to Save Thousands on Fuel Costs

Press Release Aug 02, 2017

Excellance just finished a new Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) unit for Bossier City Fire Department before heading off to Pinnacle this year. These new emergency vehicles created for the Bossier City Fire Department are stylish, powerful, and sleek.

CNG units burn cleaner, so they’re great for the environment – but they’re also great on your bottom line, boasting significantly lower fuel costs compared to standard gas and diesel engines. Bossier City’s switch to CNG has saved over $7,000 per vehicle in fuel costs annually. Excellance’s CNG vehicles get up to 7 miles a gallon, compared to 3 ½ miles on a standard diesel truck.

Cities that are rich in compressed natural gas or that have CNG fueling potential may be eligible to receive custom units like Bossier City’s soon.

This August, EMS professionals descend upon Pinnacle to determine the future of the industry in Boca Raton, FL. With talks, breakouts, and the best in the industry in terms of innovation, Pinnacle is an annual destination for solution-oriented management and leaders that shape things for years to come.
