The article presents the results of simulation of the CNG stations infrastructure in Saint Petersburg on the basis of zoning of the urban area into clusters. With the help of mathematical apparatus for each user there was estimated the capacity of natural-gas-based motor fuel and the total time of refueling. In Cartesian coordinates, «center of mass» was determined. As a result of the calculations, there were formed clusters, in the center of which CNG stations were located and there was taken into consideration refueling locus (the minimum distance from the stations to the motor fuel consumers) and the number of consumers corresponding to the capacity of the station.
