The Wisconsin Natural Gas Vehicle Fuel Roundtable is a stakeholder forum created to provide information to businesses and citizens about natural gas as a transportation fuel and identify opportunities to expand the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles. Coordinated by the Wisconsin State Energy Office, Wisconsin Clean Cities, and an advisory group of businesses from across the state, the goal of the forum is to expand the use of compressed natural gas, liquefied natural gas and biogas as vehicle fuels in Wisconsin.

IROW plans to switch to compressed natural gas for trucks
Posted by Bob Kulp in 2012 | Filed under: Kulp CNG News Stories
Local trash and recycling hauler IROW is converting three of its garbage trucks to use compressed natural gas, a fuel source that is gaining in popularity for its potential cost savings and low emissions.
IROW owner Cory Tomczyk has a fleet of 17 garbage trucks that get barely three miles per gallon of diesel fuel. The engines are in constant use, often under heavy loads driving the heavy vehicles or working the trash compactor. Tomczyk was looking to cut his fuel costs — he spends more than $4 a gallon on diesel — when he began investigating alternative fuels.
