Icom North America, manufacturer of the patented Icom JTG II propane liquid injection systems, reports it has earned Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification for the Ford 6.8 L engine for several model-year 2014 platforms.
Providing both monofuel and bi-fuel options, Icom has attained EPA certifications for all Ford E- and F-series platforms, from 14,000 to 33,000 gross vehicle weight rating, from 2009 to 2014. This includes commercial and consumer vehicles.
A wide range of Ford E- and F-series vehicles use the 6.8 L engine, Icom notes. They are commonly found in airport shuttles, emergency vehicles, heavy-duty trucks, electrical service vehicles and delivery trucks.
“EPA certification of the 2014 Ford 6.8L engine platform increases the spectrum of what's available for fleets,” says Ralph Perpetuini, CEO of Icom North America. “It allows us to immediately install our propane liquid injection system for customers as soon as the vehicle purchase is made, making the process seamless for converting to clean, economical and sustainable propane autogas.”
