Clearing Inventory of Fuel Cylinders in Favor of New 3M Tank
Venchurs CNG is offering discounted prices on its CNG conversions for Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks through April 19 – clearing inventory of compressed natural gas fuel cylinders in favor of the new Type IV tank from 3M. Venchurs cites “excess supply” and says that the discounts it’s offering are “significant.”
“In the long run, we hope that implementing 3M’s new tank into our conversions will cut our costs and ultimately the price of our conversions,” Venchurs CEO Jeff Wyatt said, in a release. “In the meantime, current and potential customers get the benefit of price breaks while we reduce our current inventory.”
Venchurs offers both dedicated-CNG and CNG-gasoline bi-fuel conversions.
3M gave word in February that it has secured NGV2-2007 certification of its new CNG cylinders (F&F, February 12).
Ford QVM with Ship-Thru
Venchurs has a ship-thru facility in Louisville, Ky., as well as a remote ship-thru facility in Adrian, Mich. “where trucks can be customized to meet all the needs of the customer.” Venchurs has a new partnership for service bodies with Knapheide, too.
Venchurs is a Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) for Ford, meaning that the Ford vehicle warranty remains in place and that conversions can be financed through Ford Credit.
