Bi-Fuel Propane System Enter U.S | We already knew that Icom North America, an alternative fuel solutions provider, plans to bring a liquid propane injection technology with potential environmental and fuel economy advantages to the U.S. automotive aftermarket for about a year, but we can now say for sure when that is going to happen, as the company has just confirmed the move will take place this year.
Icom's new JTG-Dynamic System enables vehicles to run on either diesel fuel or a 50/50 mixture of liquid-injected propane and diesel fuel.
The company can now convert applicable Ford 6.8 liter gasoline engines for E-250, E-350 and E-450 platforms covering model years 2010 and 2011 for propane and gasoline (or bi-fuel) use. Most end users of this technology will be commercial fleets of ambulances, shuttle buses, flatbeds, cutaways and cargo vehicles.
Since 2004, Icom North America has been supplying its patented JTG liquid-injection propane mono-fuel systems to leading bus, truck and commercial vehicle manufacturers in the US.We offer engine system solutions for fleets of all sizes, including: taxi and livery, law enforcement, state, county and municipal vehicles and other high mileage vehicles.
Bi-fuel engine system benefits include:
• Lower fuel costs
• Cleaner emissions
• Increased travel range
• Fewer Oil Changes
• Extended Engine Life
Jasper Alternate Fuels, a division of Jasper Engines & Transmissions of Jasper, Ind., will be the first to install the JTG-Dynamic System on diesel vehicles. Jasper has over 55 installation centers across the U.S. to perform both LPG and CNG conversions on vehicles.
"The industry has been looking for a unit like this that can provide an increase in power and torque plus a 50 percent reduction in diesel-fuel expenses," says Ed Zoglman, manager of the Jasper Alternate Fuels Division. "Our customers are looking for fuel savings and cleaner emissions. This system has both."
