Landi Renzo USA received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification on compressed natural gas (CNG) for the Ford 7.3L engine covering Class 4-7 vehicles.
These Ford vehicles are included in the EPA certification:
The Landi Renzo USA eco-fuel CNG system for the 7.3L engine is used in airport and hotel shuttle buses, delivery trucks, service trucks, large package trucks, as well as other vocational offerings.
Many of these vehicles will be able to take advantage of various grant funding opportunities, according to Landi Renzo.
"Our EPA certification is result of the tremendous work of many individuals. We also want to recognize Ford's support in helping us produce a world class CNG product," said Paul Shaffer, EVP for Landi Renzo USA.
During this 18-month effort, Landi Renzo USA conducted extensive engine and vehicle testing to meet the stringent Ford Q-185 gaseous prep guidelines and demonstrate full useful life durability.
CARB certification on the 7.3L is expected in late Q2 2020.
Landi Renzo USA is approved as a Ford QVM System Developer and Installer for gaseous fuels, offering the largest selection of eco-fuel systems for commercial fleets. By fleets utilizing the Landi Renzo USA system, the Ford warranty remains fully in place.
