U.S. Environmental Protection Agency approves new Autogas engine

Agility Fuel Solutions, provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, announced that its 488LPITM 8.0L V-8 Autogas engine has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approval for sale through 31 December, 2019.

The 488LPI engine uses Agility’s patented liquid propane injection (LPI®) technology and is assembled in Agility’s plant, located in North Carolina, on a base General Motors V-8 engine long block, with proprietary Agility dress parts, propane injection system and controls. The 488LPI engine is used in school bus and medium-duty truck applications.

“We are pleased with the performance of the 488LPI engine since we brought it to market in 2018,” said Brad Garner, Agility’s President – Powertrain Systems. “We expect demand for this engine to continue to grow as more fleets benefit from the significant purchase incentives available for LPG powered vehicles and enjoy the lower total cost of ownership over the life of the vehicle.”

A version of the 488LPI engine is available on the Thomas Built Buses Saf-T-Liner® C2 Autogas school bus. For more information, please visit this link.
