Dial Auto Parts Inc.
Dial Auto Parts Inc. has made customer deliveries with its natural gas-powered fleet since the late 1980s. It currently has eight trucks refuelling onsite. John Cazzolli, President, says the savings of natural gas are clear. "Factoring in all refuelling expenses, there are savings of about 30% based on gasoline at 90 cents per litre - it could rise to 50% with the way gasoline prices are increasing." John adds, "Environmentally speaking, natural gas runs cleaner with less emissions generated. Oil changes after 5,000 kms are still relatively clean." Dial Auto Parts Inc. knows every little bit helps. It's one reason they have been using natural gas for so long. "We need the government to back programs and research in natural gas." John states, "Hydrogen is at least 10 to 15 years away and Ethanol E85 is not available in Canada. Natural gas is here and now, ready for today!"
