Jeff King

Owner

Jeff formed InsightFuel LLC after nine years as CEO of SSP.  After developing new strategies for SSP in the alternative fuel industry SSP AFV LLC was created. Jeff’s goal was to create an independent business to focus on helping vehicle OEMs and converters shorten their product development cycle and speed up their time to market. In 2014, Jeff developed SSP CNG Plus, a new line of business within SSP to focus on expanding the compressed natural gas fueling market. CNG Plus worked with mechanical contractors helping them build CNG Stations faster and safer with new materials and methods. Now, with several years of alternative fuels vehicle experience, Jeff has, by combining SSP AFV and SSP CNG Plus, created a new company, InsightFuel LLC, which leverages its unique position as a leading supplier to both sides of the clean fuel transportation market.
