Agility Fuel Solutions has received California Air Resources Board certifications for a natural gas fuel system for installation on Ford 6.8L V-10 gasoline engines with gaseous engine prep package.
The Ford 6.8L engine with Agility's natural gas fuel system is certified to meet the CARB Optional Low NOx Emissions Standards with NOx emissions at or below 0.02 grams per brake horsepower-hour (g/bhp-hr). The certification will allow the combined fuel system and engine to qualify for a higher level of grant funding and rebates.
Additionally, when using renewable natural gas, vehicles using this engine can have lower well-to-wheels greenhouse gas and NOx emissions than a comparable electric vehicle, according to Agility president Brad Garner.
In addition, Agility received CARB certifications for Heavy-Duty On-Board Diagnostics and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards with full compliance.
The certified natural gas engine conversion is available in both 2-valve and 3-valve versions and is suited for shuttle bus, walk-in van, cutaway chassis and other medium-duty work truck applications in 50 states. The engine conversion is combined with Agility’s compressed natural gas storage solutions resulting in a complete end-to-end natural gas solution for medium-duty vehicles.
