If you’re interested in a new bi-fuel (gasoline and compressed natural gas) pickup, be ready to drop some extra dough.
GM’s Chevy 2013 Sierra HD pickup and Silverado HD pickup with the bi-fuel option are said to cost an extra $11,000. That’s on top of the approximately $32,000 you’d be spending anyway.
GM reminds customers that using CNG will save drivers somewhere between $5,000 and $10,000 over the first 3 years of owning the trucks. A gallon of CNG is now less than $2.00, compared to current gasoline costs of around $4.00 If gas prices continue to skyrocket, the truck could be worth your while.
GM says the Chevy pickup trucks have a 6 liter Vortec V8 engine that moves between gasoline and CNS.
So, spending an extra $11,000 on a bi-fuel heavy duty pickup will end up being cost effective if the car lasts at least a few years.
