NREL fuel cell bus analysis finds fuel economy to be 1.4 times higher than diesel, 1.9 times higher than CNG

NREL Fuel Cell Bus Analysis Finds Fuel Economy to be 1.4 Times Higher than Diesel December 2, 2016 NREL has published a new report showing that the average fuel economy of fuel cell electric buses from three fleets is approximately 6 miles per diesel gallon equivalent or DGE, 1.4 times higher than conventional diesel buses (about 4.2 miles per DGE) from one fleet and up to 1.9 times higher than compressed natural gas buses (about 3.3 miles per DGE) in another fleet.
