APGA Signs Joint Letter to NCWM Chairman to Pass DGE Standard

07-21-2016 11:07

On July 19, APGA joined an NGVAmerica letter with the American Gas Association, American Petroleum Institute, the American Trucking Associations, and others addressed to Jeremy Buendel, Chairman of the National Conference of Weights and Measures (NCWM), calling on the organization to adopt a modified Diesel Gallon Equivalent (DGE) proposal. NGVAmerica lead industry efforts in 2014 and 2015 to pass a DGE proposal at the NCWM Annual Conference to allow fuel retailers to sell liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG) to complement the existing gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) standard which allows retailers to sell CNG in GGE units. Unfortunately, both years the proposal fell just short during votes at the NCWM Annual Conference. This letter to the Chairman notes four changes to original DGE proposal: “1) amending the definition sections and labeling language; 2) removing the prohibition against retailers from selling in mass if it is preferred; 3) identifying additional data to support the unit values; and 4) stipulating that dispensers using the gallon equivalent unit must be capable of showing mass on the pump or alternatively on a receipt.” The NCWM will be holding their annual conference next week from July 24-28, in Denver, Colorado, where the DGE proposal will be voted on again. APGA will provide members with the results of the vote.
