IMPCO Automotive, a business unit of Fuel System Solutions Inc. and a designer, manufacturer and supplier of alternative fuel components and systems for use in transportation applications, announced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has issued 2011 model year certifications for its Bi-Fuel Compressed Natural Gas Fuel Systems for Ford Motor Co.’s F-250 and F-350 pickups equipped with the 6.2-liter V8 gaseous-prepped engine.
“We are excited to expand our offering of products to convert popular Ford trucks that run solely on gasoline to either clean-burning, plentiful, domestic CNG or conventional gasoline,” says Rob Lykins, IMPCO Automotive director of sales and marketing. “Our sequent-EX bi-fuel systems enable individual vehicle owners and fleet operators to select the fuel on which to operate their vehicles depending on availability and fuel cost. Changing from one fuel to the other is accomplished simply by pushing a button installed on the instrument panel. When running on CNG, our system enables operators to significantly lower their operating costs and reduce emissions, while at the same time reducing their reliance on foreign oil during these times of rising fuel prices.”
“IMPCO continues to aggressively invest in future growth opportunities in North America by bolstering our automotive business with innovative new products that position us in the emerging U.S. natural gas vehicle market,” says Rick Nielsen, IMPCO Automotive president.
