June 9, 2020. The newest Enmarket store opened June 8 in Port Wentworth. It is the first fueling station to bring compressed natural gas (CNG) supplied by Atlanta Gas Light to the Savannah public and provides a wide range of services aimed at truck traffic serving the Port of Savannah as well as the general public. The new store at 7002 Highway 21, at Exit 109 off Interstate 95, also offers Enmarket’s second Fuzzy Taco Shop, a fast-casual Mexican restaurant.
The store becomes the 126th in Enmarket’s growing chain of convenience stores and travel centers in Georgia and the Carolinas.
“CNG is an increasingly important fuel, especially for heavy trucks, and we are delighted to bring the fast-fill version of it to the motoring public in Savannah,” said Brett Giesick, president of Enmarket. “CNG is a clean, efficient product and making it available is in keeping with our goals to serve the public and protect the environment.”
According to Southern Company Gas subsidiary Atlanta Gas Light, CNG reduces emissions up to 90 percent when compared to gasoline and diesel vehicles. The new station will be able to fuel all classes of CNG vehicles, including Class 8 trucks (18-wheelers).
“We are proud to partner with Enmarket and help expand the state’s CNG infrastructure,” said Bryan Batson, president of Atlanta Gas Light. “This new station is also making it possible for local area fleets to deploy CNG vehicles to help meet their sustainability goals.”
The new store supplies a wide array of fuel types, including an electric vehicle charging station, auto and truck diesel, DEF, and ethanol free blu, in addition to CNG.
