Colorado wildlife pickup trucks hit roadblocks

DENVER — Colorado wildlife officials are struggling to make new pickup trucks powered by compressed natural gas work in the backcountry.

Officials cite a lack of refueling stations and problems hauling big loads during recent tests.

According to the Denver Post, the agency is trying to comply with a pledge by Gov. John Hickenlooper to add more natural gas-powered vehicles to the state fleet.

The wildlife agency plans to add at least 30 F-250 pickup trucks that run on both natural gas and gasoline for use by wildlife officers in their fleet.
