Teaming up with AGL Energy Limited (AGL), Caltex will bring CNG to its Star Mart site at Tullamarine, leading the charge as the first major fuel supplier in Australia to offer this niche fuel on a service station site.
“There is a growing trend toward natural gas, with more than 13 million vehicles powered by the fuel globally. In Australia, a major barrier is the lack of new vehicles designed to use the fuel and, as a result, there has not been demand for refuelling facilities.
“By opening the Tullamarine CNG facility, Caltex and AGL will ensure the alternative fuel is available to motorists if and when it is needed, while meeting the needs of existing commercial customers.”
AGL Executive General Manager New Energy Marc England said that AGL was very pleased to be working with Caltex on this initiative.
“This partnership can help businesses focus on cost-effectiveness and enable them to reduce their environmental footprints, so we believe it is a smart choice for fleet companies,” he said.
