IMPCO Automotive, a business unit of Fuel System Solutions, Inc., announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued 2011 model year certifications for its Bi-Fuel Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Fuel Systems for Ford's F-250 and F-350 pickups equipped with the 6.2-liter V8 gaseous prepped engine.
EPA certification for these Ford trucks, popular with both fleets and consumers, adds significant depth to the IMPCO Automotive product offering on light-duty truck platforms.
"We are excited to expand our offering of products to convert popular Ford trucks that run solely on gasoline to either clean-burning, plentiful, domestic CNG, or conventional gasoline," said Rob Lykins, IMPCO Automotive Director of Sales & Marketing. "Our innovative Sequent-EX Bi-Fuel systems enable individual vehicle owners and fleet operators to select the fuel on which to operate their vehicles depending on availability and fuel cost. Changing from one fuel to the other is accomplished simply by pushing a button installed on the instrument panel.
“When running on CNG, our system enables operators to significantly lower their operating costs and reduce emissions, while at the same time reducing their reliance on foreign oil during these times of rising fuel prices."
