On Wednesday, Oct. 5, from 9 am. to noon, the Greater Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and Acadian Companies will host the 2011 Compressed Natural Gas Fleet Seminar & Workshop at Acadian Companies’ 2916 North University Ave. location.

This free event will give businesses and individuals an opportunity to learn how converting operational fleets and other vehicles to CNG can benefit fuel efficiency and long-term cost savings.

The Louisiana Oil & Gas Association, Apache Corporation, and Lafayette Consolidated Government will give an overview of the progress of CNG fueling options in the Acadian region, also discussing the economics of converting vehicles to CNG, how consumers can go about converting fleets, and where to fill them up. Several dealerships and conversion companies will also answer questions and help attendees begin the process of converting their fleets to run on clean-burning natural gas.

A number of CNG vehicles will be on display, and several will be available for attendees to test drive. Most important, say event organizers, attendees will have the opportunity to sit down one-on-one with company representatives to evaluate fleet information and provide an assessment on whether CNG is a viable alternative for their company.

Organizers are encouraging attendees to bring information about their fleet in order to receive the best possible evaluation. Valuable information includes year, make, model, engine type, mileage/year, gallons/year and replacement schedule for each vehicle in the fleet.
