NGV U.P.T.I.M.E. Analysis: Updated Performance Tracking Integrating Maintenance Expenses
The objectives of the NGV UPTIME Analysis project are to quantify the difference in maintenance costs between diesel and compressed natural gas (CNG) freight and goods movement vehicles; identify and quantify technology and process improvements between older and newer generation natural gas vehicles (NGVs); and assess individual NGV fleets to identify opportunities to enhance operations using current and past NGV and diesel fleet data. The analysis findings are showcased by end-use application, engine/fuel system manufacturer, and vehicle chassis manufacturer, among others, to determine specific research, development, and outreach needs by application.
