Compressed Natural Gas Now Available In Topeka

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP)-- A Topeka business has started publicly offering compressed natural gas to some drivers.

Questar Fueling's, compressed natural gas filling station has been open since October, but opened Thursday to most of the public.

Compressed natural gas is chemically the same as the natural gas used for other purposes, but Dennis Brown, CNG specialist for Kansas Gas Service, says it's delivered at a higher pressure and takes up less volume, which means a truck tank can fit more fuel.

Mayor Larry Wolgast told The Topeka Capital-Journal the city and Questar worked together to bring one of the relatively few natural gas stations in Kansas to the area.
