United States: more Autogas technologies released in 2018
Alliance AutoGas has released a record number of new technologies to the Autogas industry in 2018. Examples include 58 new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certifications covering 38 differing vehicle platforms, an electric/LPG hybrid Ford Fusion, and the aftermarket Autogas port-fuelled direct injection (PFDI) engineered system.
The PFDI system, first introduced at last year’s NTEA Work Truck Expo, is still the first and only aftermarket technology of its kind available in the marketplace today, according to Alliance. The solution can integrate Alliance’s engineered system into the OEM factory computer system of the vehicle, making for a seamless communication between the two. Another platform developed to stay at the forefront of technology was the electric/LPG hybrid.
Stuart Weidie, president of Alliance AutoGas, said, “We are pleased to differentiate Alliance AutoGas in the alternative fuel market as hybrid-friendly. This vehicle is a precursor of many to come in the Ford family, and our company is committed to staying ahead of vehicle technology. We want to provide Autogas users with the best possible resources for reducing emissions and costs on the market.”
The company exhibited their new technologies, including a previously unreleased vehicle system in partnership with Prins Alterative Fuel Systems installed on a 2019 6.0 LC8 Chevy Silverado, at the NTEA Work Truck Show 2019 in Indianapolis. This particular system is estimated to save over $3000 per year in fuel costs and will lead to an average reduction of 58 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
