Referencing headlines “dominated lately with bad news for fleet owners,” Michigan’s Venchurs promoted compressed natural gas vehicles as a means to reduce costs and emissions. It is offering its dedicated-CNG and bi-fuel conversion services.
Venchurs, a 38-year-old company, is one of the first Qualified Vehicle Modifiers for Ford, tapping its longtime experience with the OEM to ease the QVM approval process. As a Ford QVM, Venchurs now offers conversions of Ford F-250 and F-350 with 6.2-liter engines. Venchurs showed a bi-fuel CNG search and rescue Ford F-250 concept truck proposed for pilot program demonstrations by national park rangers. The “Equip SAR” upfit includes Michelin off-road tires, roof-mounted light-bar with strobe lights, on-board air compressor, heavy front bumper, and winch.
The Venchurs design “is rugged enough to handle nearly any environment and will allow rangers to access remote wilderness areas and support back country operations while running on clean-burning CNG,” the company says.
“The Venchurs team welcomes the opportunity to bring our OE industry expertise and resources to this very important emerging market,” said Venchurs CEO Jeff Wyatt. “Our technology is extremely impressive, durable and cost-effective.”
