Alliance AutoGas will be converting a bi-fuel 2016 3.5L Ford F-150 V-6 on March 3 at the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, Ind.
The live conversion will be going for the “Fastest Recorded Alternative Fuel Conversion to Propane Autogas.” Alliance AutoGas installs a handful of parts, including a secondary fuel tank to store the autogas, an injector spacer plate, and engine control unit (ECU).
The system does not require any permanent vehicle modifications and can be removed, which is especially convenient for fleet managers who lease vehicles.
“Any fleet that covers a substantial amount of miles would have a real-life savings very quickly,” said Ed Hoffman, president of Blossman Services, Inc., the equipment distributor for Alliance AutoGas.
