CNG coming to Mayes County

PRYOR — All things Compressed Natural Gas are coming to Pryor with the arrival of Go Freedom Fuel. The owners will hang their shingle on the building of the former Mid America Rental Company, located at the intersection of Highways 69 and 69A.

Bridger Kucinski and Joe Barnts are originally from Colorado. The pair came to Tulsa a few years ago and set up shop with Go Freedom Fuel.

From basic vehicle conversions to design, installation and service of fill stations and everything in between, the duo has succeeded in making a name for themselves in this relatively new industry.

It was Pryor Stone’s James and Melinda Kemp that introduced Kucinski and Barnts to Pryor.

“We installed a fueling station for them and did several vehicle conversions,” Barnts said. “They’ve been very instrumental in steering us in this direction.”

Barnts and Kucinski have big plans for the future of Go Freedom Fuel.

They offer CNG conversions on both gas and diesel vehicles and also provide sales, design, installation and service for fueling compressors and fill stations. In short order there will be a public access fill station at the location.

Unmanned and card-operated, CNG fuel will be available 24/7.

“We plan to do some renovation on the building, having a glass front,” Barnts said, who added that there are plans to offer converted vehicles for sale.

Conversion includes a fuel storage container, computer, CNG fuel injectors, regulators and high pressure stainless steel hoses. The costs, however, more than pay for themselves in fuel savings, according to Barnts.

“I can drive a 10 mile-per-gallon truck for the same cost per mile as the Honda Civic next to me,” he said. “It’s natural, domestic, abundant and clean. It just makes sense.”
