Agility Fuel Solutions, a provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification for its first alternative fuel engine.
Agility’s 488LPI engine, an 8.0L V-8 propane engine using Agility’s patented liquid propane injection (LPI) technology, has been granted EPA certification for 2018. The 488LPI is built on a General Motors long-block V-8 engine block with proprietary Agility dress parts, propane injection system and controls.
The 488LPI engine is suited for school bus, propane bobtail and medium-duty trucking applications, according to Agility.
“We launched Agility’s powertrain systems business unit one year ago,” says Brad Garner, Agility’s president of powertrain systems. “We are very proud of the work our team has done since then to bring this first engine to market, and we look forward to launching the additional propane and natural gas engines in our pipeline to serve the needs of our customers.”
