There are two ways to refuel an NGV; slow or fast fill.
A slow fill is a run by a small pump that takes up to 8 hours to fill a vehicle’s natural gas tank. The pump draws natural gas from an existing residential line (in garage or the side of a house/building).
A fast fill looks and operates almost exactly like a commercial gasoline pump. It will fill a large CNG tank in 7 to 8 minutes. Usually, they are card lock operated.

Our system and components all meet or exceed provincial and federal (DOT) safety standards. The tanks are rigorously tested, and are trusted to operate and perform in harsh and rugged environments.
Natural gas is the safest fossil fuel. It is lighter than air so it dissipates quickly, and will not pool.
Our system is custom engineered, and will not affect OEM warranty. We have a solid track record with vehicle manufacturers, and are a Ford and GM Ship-To facility.
Hitec’s technology provides a system that is almost totally transparent to the driver. We have done hundreds of conversions that operate in very demanding environments, with little effect on performance. Depending on the year, make and model, there may be a slight decrease in the front end acceleration, and a slight increase at the top end.
Hitec has completed 100’s of CNG conversions for customers whose operations range across Alberta and BC (From Medicine Hat to Ft Nelson, BC). These customers trust our bi-fuel system to operate year round in demanding and harsh environments; this is a large part of what sets Hitec’s system apart from the rest.
