Agility Receives CARB Approval for Near-Zero Emissions Fuel System with Heavy-Duty On-Board Diagnostics (HD-OBD)

135 Days ago

COSTA MESA, March 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Agility Fuel Solutions, a leading global provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, announced today that it has received California Air Resources Board (CARB) certifications for a natural gas fuel system for installation on Ford 6.8L V-10 gasoline engines with gaseous engine prep package.

The Ford 6.8L engine with Agility’s natural gas fuel system is certified to meet the CARB Optional Low NOx Emissions Standards with NOx emissions at or below 0.02 grams per brake horsepower-hour (g/bhp-hr). 

In addition, Agility received CARB Heavy-Duty On-Board Diagnostics (HD-OBD) and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards certification with full compliance.

The certified natural gas engine conversion is available in both 2-valve and 3-valve versions and is suited for shuttle bus, walk-in van, cutaway chassis and other medium-duty work truck applications in all 50 states.  The engine conversion is combined with Agility’s compressed natural gas storage solutions resulting in a complete end-to-end natural gas solution for medium-duty vehicles.  

“This Agility 6.8L fuel system certification gives more fleets the ability to save money on fuel while reducing their environmental footprint, and because it has near-zero emissions, it qualifies for a higher level of grant funding and rebates,” said Brad Garner, Agility’s President – Powertrain Systems.  “In addition, when using renewable natural gas, vehicles using this engine can actually have lower well-to-wheels greenhouse gas and NOx emissions than a comparable electric vehicle, at a significantly lower cost.”
