How does it work? You gas up via separate tanks. The gas tank and cap are where you would find them on a traditional gas vehicle, but instead that steel case in the front of the pickup bed where the tools normally go, there is a separate contained compressed natural gas tank, which has its own cap for filling. Inside the CNG F150 you have two separate gauges for fuel levels, so you can keep an eye on both fuel tanks. That’s it—No more to think about. The truck works out the rest for you.
