A new station offering CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) has opened along the A2 Autobahn in Germany. Normally, this isn't huge news, but this particular station is the 800th CNG fueling spot in the country, compared to more than 15,000 gas stations. More figures about CNG stations in Germany: 350 of these 800 stations are easilly accessible from highways, 95 percent are accessible to the general public and 60 are open 24 hours a day. What's also interesting is that nine percent of these 800 stations also offer biogas (in proportions that range from 10 to 100 percent), obtained from from organic waste such as manure or sewage sludge. Another interesting note, LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) can be found in 4,100 stations across the country. If you're driving around Germany in a car able to run with natural gas, you might find this site helpful. It's a station locator with all kind of parameters: distance, price, biogas avalilability, and more.
