InsightFuel is the latest new venture to arise out of the expanding U.S. natural gas fuel market. Established by alternative fuel industry veteran Jeff King, former CEO of SSP, the new enterprise unites two companies, supplying vehicle makers and station builders with business and construction expertise to help the transportation industry embrace and promote green technology.
The businesses that merged to form InsightFuel include AFV, a producer of natural gas vehicle fuel lines (circa 2009) and sister company to SSP, and CNG Plus, a construction services business helping contractors build compressed natural gas stations faster and safer with new materials and methods (circa 2014). AFV, a TS16949/ISO 9001 certified company, has engineering and manufacturing capabilities to produce low and high pressure CNG/LNG/LPG vehicle fuel lines made from tubing and hose. AFV also supplies these assemblies installed to, and/or kitted with related hardware including filters, valves, regulators and receptacles mainly to OEMs, fuel delivery system providers and converters.
CNG Plus has patented jobsite tooling used to connect CNG fueling station equipment (aka ‘interconnect piping’). CNG Plus provides interconnect piping materials (tubing, conduit, fittings and valves), assembly tooling, and training to support contractors building CNG stations.
Combining AFV and CNG Plus with construction expertise gives InsightFuel the resources and expertise to bring turnkey solutions to smaller light and medium duty fleet operators. “With the assistance of our partner, R. Anthony Enterprises, we’re going to reach smaller light-duty and medium-duty fleet operators throughout the US,” comments Jeff King, owner of InsightFuel. “Through this three-pronged approach, we can make the largest positive impact on the environment by expanding the market to create new operators of clean fuel fleets.”
