Mitsubishi Fuso Canter with EPS.

Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America has made an engine protection system standard on all 2015 Canter models and is available as a no-cost upgrade for 2012-14 Canter FE and FG Series work trucks.

The EPS will shut down the engine when there is critically low oil pressure and regulate fuel flow to reduce engine heating when it senses elevated coolant temperature. The system was developed at the request of its fleet customers and is designed as an automatic backup in the event that a driver doesn’t respond to oil pressure and coolant temperature warnings, Mitsubishi says.

Mitsubishi wants all of its customers to take advantage of the benefits of the EPS and will install it on all Canters in inventory at their ports-of-entry before being shipped to the dealer network. They will also install the EPS for Fuso owners who request it at a Fuso dealer.

The upgrade is software only and takes advantage of sensors already installed in the truck and Mitsubishi says it can be performed easily during a normal maintenance visit
