Enterprise delivers dual-fuel CNG truck to consulting firm

Sept. 12, 2013

Dawood Engineering, a Pennsylvania-based consulting firm specializing in civil engineering, environmental services, and land development, has taken delivery of a factory-installed dual-fuel compressed natural gas (CNG) 2013 Ram 2500 pickup.

The truck was acquired through Enterprise Fleet Management, a full-service fleet management company.

The truck features a special engine calibration along with a body built to accommodate two separate fuel sources, as well as a single door for both CNG and regular fuel ports, Enterprise said. Unlike aftermarket conversion systems that have been the only option until now for pickup trucks, the factory-installed CNG system is covered under the manufacturer’s warranty, and vehicles can be repaired at a local dealership.

“Dawood is excited to be one of the first small businesses in the state to drive a CNG vehicle,” stated Bony R. Dawood, PE, president of Dawood. “We are delighted to have the opportunity to support the local natural gas industry, which has a major presence in our state and is one of our largest customers.”

The truck will be based at the company’s Sayre office location in northeastern Pennsylvania, where it has convenient access to three CNG fueling stations that are available to the public. 

“In addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and being more environmentally friendly than gasoline or diesel, compressed natural gas is a locally produced fuel that is important to our local economy, local job opportunities and local communities throughout Pennsylvania,” said Dawood.
