Love’s Travel Stops announced it will add compressed natural gas fueling capabilities for heavy-duty trucks in Albuquerque, N.M., and Williams, Ariz. The locations will be the first public-access travel stops along the 960-mile stretch of I-40 between Amarillo, Texas, and Barstow, Calif., to offer CNG. Love’s and Kansas-based Seaboard Foods — the anchor customer for the CNG expansion — have agreed to expand Love’s Fast-Fill CNG offerings into new parts of the United States.

“With our growing fast-fill CNG network, Love’s will be able to offer customers convenient accessibility from Oklahoma City to the West Coast because of this partnership,” said Bill Cashmareck, general manager of natural gas at Love’s. “Love’s in-lane CNG will be a reliable and cost-effective full-service solution for motorists and fleets who want to use their existing fueling cards and also need diesel for their refrigerated trailers.”

“Seaboard Foods is excited to partner with Love’s and continues to add CNG trucks to our fleet,” says Terry Holton, president of Seaboard Foods. “CNG allows us to reduce our emissions, which fits our sustainability and environmental stewardship goals,”

Love’s says its Fast-Fill CNG stations are designed to deliver a fill rate of greater than 10 gallons per minute, meaning a driver can fill a 100 diesel-gallon-equivalent tank in 10 minutes or less.

Love’s previously announced expansion of its Love’s Fast-Fill CNG network at 11 travel stops across Texas and Oklahoma and an additional location in Burbank, Ohio.
