    what Robert is missing

    CLNE is waiting for the ramp in 12L engines from Cummins. It is coming, just a lot slower than many on this board expected. Trucking fleets want the trucks, and will buy as many engines as Cummins can produce.

    Lets look at a realistic roll-out schedule and the ramp up in fuel sales (GGEs); Cummins has said they expect 2000 engines in 2013, 7500 in 2014.

    Week 1: 60 engines, consuming 300 GGE each: 18,000 GGE for the week
    Week 2: 60 additional engines: total on road: 120 @ 300 GGE: 36,000 for the week
    Week 3: 60 additional engines: total on road: 180 @ 300 GGE : 54,000 for the week
    Week 4: 60 additional engines: total on road: 240 @ 300 GGE: 72,000 for the week

    By week 12 (3 months) we have 720 engines on the road, each using 300 GGEs wk.
    Thats 216,000 GGE a week or 11 million GGE a year. Can you not see the potential? CLNE has stations built, but not yet open due to lack of trucks. This will change over the next 6-12 months.

    By the end of 2014 Cummins expects to have 9,500 engines on the road, each using 300 GGE a week, or 2,850,000 GGE a week, or 148,500,000 GGE a year. Not counting other product lines being added to the CNG/LNG consumption lines.
