A fuel system of the vehicle features four tanks on the frame: two 100-litre tanks on the left side and two 80-litre tanks on the right side. The total capacity of the tanks is 360 litres or 72 cubic meters of compressed natural gas by pressure of 200 atm, which enables to travel 300 km without refueling.
