First CNG Pickup Experience: Chevy Silverado 2500 Bi-Fuel
First Impressions Driving A 2015 Bi-Fuel CNG 2500 Silverado HD
May, 2014 There’s this big push to get us to embrace clean energy by opting for propane- and CNG-powered pickups over diesel and gas.
I’m all for helping the environment and am not afraid to give alternative fuels a look.
So I’ve been eager to test both propane and CNG. I was impressed by the Roush-converted propane-powered F-250 I ran back in March. You’d never know it was propane by the way it performed over all.
I was elated last week when I got my hands on a 2015 Chevy Silverado bi-fuel 2500HDCrew Cab 4×4 with the factory CNG package.
But after spending a few days with it, I don’t think you can sell me on making the CNG switch just yet.
Here’s the skinny: The CNG fuel tank takes up about 1/3 of the bed, it only holds about 17 GGE(gasoline gallon equivalent), and there’s a significant drop in both power and fuel economy compared to running the 6.0L GM V-8 on gas.
