Test Drive a Penske CNG Truck!

Limited Time Only: Test-Drive a Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Truck for 1-30 days from Penske Truck Leasing 

In partnership with the US Department of Energy and Penske Truck Leasing, Louisiana Clean Fuels is seeking interested fleets to try out a clean-burning, heavy-duty compressed natural gas (CNG) truck via the Penkse Truck Leasing Alternative Fuel Vehicle Demonstration & Enhanced Driver Experience Project. This program aims to help fleets minimize risks and costs by enabling them to evaluate the integration of CNG in their operations, for the same price as a comparable diesel truck ($100/day), before making the commitment to purchase or lease.
