Weight Limit Exception for Natural Gas Vehicles -IRP Registration

22 Mar 2019 9:00 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Consistent with 23 U.S.C. 127 (s) and N.J.S.A. 39:3-84.1, the State of New Jersey will allow an increased registration weight up to 82,000 pounds for vehicles operated by an engine fueled primarily by natural gas.  Such a vehicle may exceed any vehicle weight limit (up to a maximum gross vehicle weight of 82,000 pounds) by an amount that is equal to the difference between:

  1. the weight of the vehicle attributable to the natural gas tank and fueling system carried by that vehicle; and
  2. The weight of a comparable diesel tank and fueling system.

The New Jersey fee table is not changed. For these vehicles, the maximum registration fee rate (80,000 pounds) will be applied.
