More Powerful Pickup Is EPA-Certified, Uses 3M Tank

Pennsylvania’s Alternative Fuel Solutions says it’s giving customers what they want: a 2103 Ford F-150 pickup truck with a U.S. EPA-certified, OBD II-compliant 5.0-liter CNG-gasoline bi-fuel V-8 engine.

The compressed natural gas truck “will allow major fleets and commerce to start using the popular F150 5.0L in their fleets again,” AFS co-founder and VP James O’Donnell says in a release.

Ford promotes the gasoline version of the 5.0-liter engine as generating 360 horsepower with 380 foot-pounds of torque.

Ford Q185 But ‘Not a QVM’

AFS uses a single Type IV CNG tank from 3M holding 23.8 gasoline gallon equivalents in the 5.0-liter truck, O’Donnell says.

AFS holds a Ford Q185 approval on the truck, he told F&F. “We’re not a QVM system provider,” he says.

The Mahaffey, Pa.-based firm also offers EPA-certified alternative fuel conversion systems for GM and Chrysler vehicles.
