Douglas putting CNG vehicles on the road

DOUGLAS, GA (WALB) -

The city of Douglas plans to convert several city cars into compressed natural gas vehicles.

Five police dodge chargers and other city fleet vehicles will soon run off natural gas. The city's trash provider, Waste Industries, has a contract to use the fuel for their vehicles. The city opened a CNG fueling facility October 1st that is open to the public. Anyone with a C-N-G or bi-fuel vehicle can use the station.

“Any vehicle that we think will make sense that will save money and will give us that carbon footprint in the city of Douglas we'll entertain doing. We want be able to do a full fleet so some don't make sense but the ones we do, we'll convert to CNG vehicles. Police force will be some of the main ones,” said Mike Hudson, Natural Gas, Water and Waste Director.

The city plans to convert more vehicles to save on fuel costs.
