TORRANCE, CA - Landi Renzo USA and Reading Equipment & Distribution have announced a partnership to produce and deliver alternative-fuel vehicles using compressed natural gas (CNG) directly to Ford dealership floors across North America.
As a Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) of Ford vehicles, Landi Renzo's bi-fuel CNG system will be fully integrated as close to the OEM level as possible and installed on Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks by Reading Equipment & Distribution at its Ford ship-thru facility in Louisville, Ky.
Ordering bi-fuel equipped trucks is as simple as a Ford dealer checking the option code on the vehicle order form, which then routes the vehicle through Reading's alternative-fuel ship-thru and delivered anywhere in the country, according to the companies.
The EPA-certified Landi Renzo/Reading bi-fuel CNG system allows Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks to operate on either natural gas or gasoline. The 21 and 24 gasoline-gallon-equivalent tanks are part of a system that complies with the Federal Motor Vehicles Safety Standards and Regulations. Service can be conducted by any authorized local dealer and will be backed by a comprehensive warranty that mirrors factory specifications.
