EcoDual LLC, a provider of dual-fuel conversion systems for heavy-duty diesel trucks, says the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has authorized the company to begin installing its systems on 2004 to 2009 Cummins ISX engines.
The conversion kit for the 15 L Cummins diesel/natural gas engine was successfully tested on cross-country runs in a truck provided by J.W. Stenger Trucking of Barnesville, Ohio, EcoDual says.
‘We jumped at the opportunity to work with EcoDual because its system will give us huge savings in our fuel costs,’ adds Joe Stenger, president of J.W. Stenger Trucking.
EcoDual notes that the fully warranted conversion systems can be installed at a fleet owner's site. Over the next year, the company plans on releasing multiple systems certified for newer trucks with the Cummins ISX and other engines from Detroit Diesel, Mack and Caterpillar.
