APG Secures More EPA IUL Approvals

October 13, 2015 in certifications, Dual Fuel, NGVs by Rich Piellisch  |  No Comments

Agency Nod for 13 Additional Cummins ISX Engine Families

American Power Group says it’s received additional U.S. EPA IUL/intermediate useful life approvals allowing dual fuel natural gas-diesel conversions of heavy duty Cummins ISX diesel engines. Thirteen additional ISX variants are covered, from model year 2005 to 2013, bringing APG’s total number of EPA approvals to 487.

APG’s V5000 dual fuel system for natural gas trucks

APG’s V5000 dual fuel system for natural gas trucks



The new approvals covering APG’s V5000 Dual Fuel Turbocharged system are APG’s fourth for engines with SCR/selective catalytic reduction.

“The Cummins ISX15 enjoys a market leadership position in big-bore engines where retention of power and torque is critical,” APG president and CEO Lyle Jensen said in a release.

APG Claims Only Natural Gas Option for Heaviest Trucks

“The U.S. heavy-haul trucking market does not have a viable natural gas engine option for 450- to 600-horswpower Class 8 trucks except for APG’s dual fuel solution,” he said.

“During 2014, several dedicated natural gas engine OEM’s cancelled or delayed their 13-liter and 15-liter natural gas engine development leaving a significant gap in the Class 8 natural gas engine coverage,” Jensen said. With APG’s Cummins ISX15, Detroit Diesel DD13/DD15, and Volvo/Mack D13 IUL approvals, we fill in that gap with a natural gas solution that does not compromise power.

20,000 Owners of 100,000 Trucks

“We have identified over 20,000 registered Cummins ISX15 owners representing approximately 100,000 trucks for engine production years 2013-2010,” Jensen says in the announcement.

The American Power Group will show this Harrison Truck Centers Freightliner 122SD (severe duty) dual fuel glider at the High Horsepower (HHP) Summit 2015 in Dallas October 27-29.

The American Power Group will show this Harrison Truck Centers Freightliner 122SD (severe duty) dual fuel glider at the High Horsepower (HHP) Summit 2015 in Dallas October 27-29.

“This target list will be marketed through our natural gas supply partners and our authorized dealer network. We estimate there are 600,000 – 700,000 Class 8 trucks that fall into the total eligible IUL designation.”

More Diesel Displacement Per Dollar

“In the high horsepower truck markets, APG’s dual fuel system displaces more diesel fuel per invested dollar than any other natural gas engine technology. A fleet owner can purchase one new dedicated 11.9L natural gas truck for approximately $180,000 and displace around 18,000 gallons of diesel fuel per year.

“For the same $180,000 investment,” Jensen said, “a fleet owner can convert six of his existing high-horsepower diesel tractors to dual fuel and displace on average 55% to 60% or 60,000 gallons, of diesel fuel per year which is 3.3 times higher diesel displacement per invested dollar.”
