Installation on a Peterbilt 348 Truck That’s to Have Two Engines
A-1 Alternative Fuel Systems is talking up development of a 210-diesel gallon equivalent compressed natural gas fuel cylinder assembly on a Peterbilt 348 truck for a Missouri-based wastewater pipeline rehabilitation outfit.
The truck is powered by an 8.9-liter ISL G engine from Cummins Westport and has been fitted with dual regulators – the 210-DGE fuel system will power a second engine that’s to be installed on the truck body, says A-1’s Will Gutila.
For Class 7 and Class 8 long-haul operators, the new A-1 cabinet would afford a single-fill range of 700 to 900 miles for, he told F&F. The assembly has eight 21-by-80-inch, neck-mounted Type IV CNG tanks. The enclosure features high-strength ultra-light aluminum covers with stainless steel bolts.
The big CNG cabinet was developed by A-1’s team in Elkhart, Ind. The company’s headquarters facility is in Fresno, Calif.
