OKLAHOMA CITY (Oct. 22, 2014) — Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores L.L.C. is expanding the availability of compressed natural gas (CNG) for truckers and motorists visiting its locations.
The company said CNG will be available by spring 2015 at another location along I-40. The existing Love's Travel Stop in West Memphis, Ark., will be the seventh Love's location along the interstate to provide Love's Fast-Fill CNG for heavy-duty trucks, and a CNG fueling option for passenger vehicles.
“With the opening of this location, professional drivers and motorists can travel more than 1,300 miles along I-40 between West Memphis, Arkansas, and Williams, Arizona, using Love's CNG,” said Frank Love, co-CEO of Love's. “Expanding our offerings along this major interstate, and others across the country, makes CNG a viable option for more types of trucking applications.”
Love's Fast-Fill CNG, designed for over-the-road fleets, is available in-lane along with diesel and diesel exhaust fuel (DEF). It offers a fill rate of greater than 10 gallons per minute, meaning a driver can fill a 100 gallon equivalent tank in 10 minutes or less, according to the company. The new location will allow Swift Transportation, which operates one of the largest for-hire commercial carriers in the country, to add to their growing CNG fleet.

1. Oklahoma City — I-40, Exit 140
2. Willis, Texas — I-45, Exit 95
