Fill 'er Up

  • August 18, 2009

In July, Shell opened New York City’s first hydrogen fueling station for cars. Located at John F. Kennedy Airport, the station has a single hydrogen dispenser, available 24 hours a day. Currently, there is no charge to refuel: most users are expected to be participants in Project Driveway, a General Motors demonstration project for fuel-cell cars. Another refueling station is already in operation to the north of the city, and a second station within New York city limits is expected to open soon.
