Looking to help stimulate the market, North Carolina’s Altech-Eco has “drastically” reduced the prices of its compressed natural gas conversions of Ford Transit Connect and F-250 and -350 pickups.
Altech-Eco conversions of the 2013 Ford Transit Connect van with 2.0-liter engine start at $6,200 with 8.9 gasoline gallon equivalent onboard fuel storage. For 17.8 GGEs, the Transit Connect price is $7,599 installed.

‘We Will Continue to Make Cost Reductions’
“We are reducing the price of our CNG systems to help stimulate the market and attract new customers that may not be able to afford CNG systems with current prices on the market today and we will continue to make cost reductions until it is affordable for everyone,” Altech-Eco VP Miles George said in a release.
The company says it achieved the cost reductions “by optimizing its system and working with its suppliers.”
Altech-Eco offers both dedicated-CNG and CNG-gasoline bi-fuel conversions.
The firm promotes “seamless” integrated systems designed in collaboration with a Ford approved QCM (Qualified Calibration Modifier) for real-fleet applications. Altech-Eco is itself a Ford QVM (Qualified Vehicle Modifier).
