New Autogas engine for truck and bus applications gets U.S. EPA approval

Agility Fuel Solutions has received 2020 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification for its 488LPI™ Autogas engine for sale in truck and bus applications. The new engine is built using Agility’s patented LPG injection (LPI) technology to ensure consistent injection of LPG across all cylinders under all operating conditions, improving engine performance.

Agility designed the 488LPI™ for reliability, with improvements such as a valvetrain with roller rockers and newly designed dress parts specifically engineered to ensure reliability, durability and fuel efficiency.

A custom configuration of the 488LPI engine is supplied to Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) as a part of the DriveForce brand of engines – the DriveForce 8.0L is available in the Thomas Built Bus Saf-T-Liner® C2 Autogas school bus and in the FCCC S2G medium duty truck.

“We are pleased to have received this EPA certification early, as it gives Autogas fleet customers further confidence in our products as they plan their future clean fuel vehicle purchases,” said Brad Garner, President of Powertrain Systems at Agility. “With this LPG system, customers have an attractive option to control fuel costs and meet fleet sustainability goals through expanding clean fuel vehicles in their fleet.”
