Question
Dear Charles

Is the input gas source to the CNG dispenser machine is a underground cng gas pipeline Or from Truck filled with CNG gas Or it can Accept both gas sources at the fuel stations?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Most CNG dispensing stations are supplied gas from the local utility.  At the dispensing station is (usually) a compressor to compress the gas to dispensing pressure, ie 3600 psi.  I guess a truck with high pressure tanks (in excess of 3600 psi) could do the same thing, doesn't sound very efficient however.
