EPA OKs Omnitek’s Natural Gas Conversion Systems for Navistar 7.6L and 8.7L


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has approved Omnitek Engineering Corp.'s natural gas conversion technology for the Navistar DT466E and DT530E engines in the ‘outside useful life’ definition.

‘Approval of our technology by the EPA represents a significant milestone for the company, and we anticipate tremendous domestic demand to convert diesel truck and bus engines to operate on liquefied natural gas (LNG), compressed natural gas (CNG) or renewable biogas,’ says Werner Funk, president and CEO of Omnitek.

The DT466E (7.6-liter) and DT530E (8.7-liter) engine families included 130 different configurations that were manufactured from 1996 through 2003. Omnitek says these engines represent an estimated addressable market of 1.5 million potential conversions.
