Limits on environmental emissions from motor vehicles continue to be reduced by both federal and local regulatory bodies. 1990 legislation has established requirements for the use of alternatively-fueled fleet vehicles by 1994 in some parts of the country. Also, the availability of petroleum-based vehicular fuels is again being questioned. To address these concerns the Navy undertook experimental operation of a five-vehicle, compressed natural gas CNG vehicle fleet. Experience gained in operation of that fleet along with other data available has been used to prepare this User Data Package. This package provides background information procedures whereby Naval activities can assess the desirability and economic feasibility for implementing a CNG-fueled vehicle fleet. It also provides procedures and recommendations for the design, procurement, and maintenance of both CNG fleet vehicles and CNG refueling stations.
