Plus time to get there. Cng makes sense if you living north or central to some degree but one station at cocoyea with 4 pumps to handle the entire of South for YEARS is unreasonable.sam1978 wrote:So the taxis can’t fill up when they’re between trips?

To keep in step with ever-evolving technology and to support a green agenda, as part of its design, the topside canopy is equipped with solar photo voltaic and storage panels and an electric vehicle charging system, as a fitting way to introduce the new NP Quik Charge brand.
Situated on over 65,000 square feet of land with an expansive 241-foot x 36-foot canopy, this ultra-modern site has 20 filling spots: ten (10) for liquid fuels (premium, super and diesel) and ten (10) for the environmentally friendly compressed natural gas (CNG).
Other impressive features include an Ultra Lubricants Car Care Zone, LED lighting for optimal customer security, Pay-at-the-Pump facilities, and an ATM.
Moreover, NP’s popular convenience store, QuikShoppe Plus, will provide fresh-made food items as part of its offerings, thus becoming a perfect destination for the busy commuter.
We are happy to welcome motorists along this route and those on the nearby Pt. Lisas Industrial Estate to this fully modernized site, one of the largest in the region!
In the press conference they stated a quick 1/2 hour charge should fill up most electric vehicle batteries from 0%. That's really quick by comparison.
The charge station at Brentwood took over an hour to charge 20% of a hybrid vehicle battery last time I used it.
