TruStar Energy, one of the nation’s leading developers of Compressed
Natural Gas (CNG) fueling stations, announced today that it has

Located at the company’s North American Detroit Terminal, the CNG

cleaner, domestically produced natural gas. With six Ariel compressors
able to dispense CNG at nearly 40 gasoline-gallon equivalent (GGE) per
minute, it is the largest private fast-fill station in North America.

"Allocating FCA US resources to convert the fleet to CNG not only yields
the company long-term cost savings, it significantly reduces CO2
emissions and continues the company’s leadership in the areas of
technological advancement and sustainability. We're also sending a
strong signal to the Detroit community that we're going to play a
supportive role in the City's comeback," said Marty DiFiore, head of FCA
The FCA Transport fleet delivers parts and materials to FCA US assembly
plants in Michigan, Ohio, and Ontario, Canada.
“With this new CNG station, FCA US is taking a leadership position in
its industry—and in creating a lower carbon future,” said Adam Comora,
President of TruStar Energy. “Companies that have fleets are beginning
to take a longer strategic look at migrating their vehicles to domestic
compressed natural gas. Even in a lower oil price environment, certain
CNG applications still make economic sense providing significant cost
savings while allowing corporations to make progress toward
The largest private CNG fueling station built by TruStar Energy to date,
the project was completed for the FCA Transport fleet in under six
months—several months less than the industry standard of 12-18 months.
TruStar Energy owns, will operate and maintain the station and will
provide CNG for FCA US under a long-term supply contract.
“TruStar Energy worked closely with FCA US to build a tailored solution
on a very aggressive time schedule. Getting it done quickly and on time
with our partners and DTE Energy delivered significant cost savings for
FCA US,” said Scott Edelbach, General Manager for Construction and
Service Operations for TruStar Energy. “This station was specifically
designed to meet FCA Transport’s fueling needs today and tomorrow as
they increase their CNG fleet.”
The station features six Ariel 300-horsepower compressors packaged by
ANGI, a PSB dual-tower gas dryer and three ANGI fast-fill dispensers.
TruStar Energy has constructed over a hundred private and public CNG
fueling stations across the country. To learn more about TruStar
