A new engine protection system that will shut down the engine when oil pressure is extremely low and will regulate the flow of fuel should the engine overheat will be offered as standard equipment on all 2015 Mitsubishi Fuso models.
The feature also will be available as a no-cost upgrade on all 2012–2014 model-year Canter FE and FG Series work trucks.
This system acts as an automatic back-up in the event that the driver fails to respond if the instrument cluster indicates low engine oil pressure or rising coolant temperature.
“We want all of our FUSO Canter owners to take advantage of the benefits,” says Leighton Good, MFTA’s product and applications manager. “We will also be installing the EPS on all of the Canters in inventory at our ports-of-entry before they’re shipped to our dealer network, and we’ll retrofit this system for FUSO owners who request it from a local authorized Fuso dealer. This is a software upgrade that takes advantage of the sensors already installed on the truck. It can be performed easily during a normal maintenance visit and it requires no hardware changes.”
For more information, FUSO Canter owners should see their local Mitsubishi Fuso dealer, or use the dealer locator at www.mitfuso.com
