Both Dedicated-Propane and Bi-Fuel Gasoline Versions

Icom North America said today that its “Icom JTGhp” systems for Ford’s 3.5-liter Ecoboost engine – model years 2015, 2016, and 2017 – are U.S. EPA-certified and in full production. Both dedicated and propane-gasoline bi-fuel variants are available.

Icom’s ‘JTGhp’ direct injection modification for dedicated-propane autogas and gasoline bi-fuel operation of Ford’s 3.5-liter engine is applicable to the automakers utility and sedan Police Interceptor vehicles.

The propane autogas engine is suitable for vehicles including Ford Police Interceptor Utility, Police Interceptor Sedan, Explorers, F-150 pickup, Taurus, Flex, Edge and Expedition models, Icom says, as well as Lincoln MKT, MKS, MKZ, Navigator, and livery service vehicles.

‘Game-Changer’

Icom CEO Ralph Perpetuini, noting NOx emissions of just 0.01 and zero particulates, called the JTGhp direct injection system a “game-changer.”

“No gasoline is utilized in either the bi-fuel or monofuel versions,” he says in today’s release. “Gasoline is only a backup fuel if utilizing the bi-fuel version.”

We Are Not Vapor-Port Injecting’

The Icom system “works precisely how direct injection engines were designed,” said company chairman Albert Venezio.

“We are not vapor-port injecting into the manifold which fully defeats the purpose of direct injection,” he said, noting the support of PERC, the Propane Education and Resource Council.
