EPA Nod Expands Line ‘to Nearly 50 Engine Families’

EcoDual reports U.S. EPA approval to begin installing its dual fuel conversion systems “on all 29 engine families of the 2004 to 2009 Cummins ISM,” an 11-liter powerplant.
EcoDual says that its natural gas-to-diesel fuel substitution rate is the highest among all available dual fuel conversion kits – an average substitution of 60% natural gas over typical driving conditions – “providing enormous fuel cost savings and the shortest return on investment.

“The cost of the dual fuel system is often recovered in operational savings within one year without any government incentives,” the company says.

Warranty and Lease-to-Own

“EcoDual is committed to providing a major cost savings to truck fleet owners,” president and CEO Scott Myers said in a Monday release.

“This approval of our ISM system greatly expands our dual fuel product line to nearly 50 engine families that can run on CNG or LNG,” Myers said.

“As with all of our other products, EcoDual will provide a two-year/250,000 mile warranty and lease-to-own financing for immediate fuel savings.”

EcoDual systems are installed at the fleet owner’s site. Trucks maintain full torque and power with no loss of miles per gallon, the company says, and can operate “on 100% diesel at full power if the natural gas tank runs dry.”

EcoDual promises over the coming year to release multiple systems certified for newer trucks with the Cummins ISM and ISX engines, as well as other engine families from Detroit Diesel, Mack, Paccar and Caterpillar.
