“To celebrate,” Skygo says, the partners are slashing prices for 90 days.

Ambac is offering the Cummins ISX dual fuel solution for solution for just $9,900 direct, a mark-down of more than $5,400 from the $15,000 list.

‘A Unique Technology’

The $9,900 tab is also good for pre-orders of the new Detroit Diesel Series 60 and DD15 offerings. Testing takes place March 2, says Skygo president Mike Kilbourne. “We are anticipating approval May 2015,” he told F&F.

The new prices are further backed by a money-back guarantee: “Ambac will demonstrate the value to the customer by offering a 90-day satisfaction guarantee on all dual fuel systems. If the system does not perform to the customer’s satisfaction,” Skygo says, “Ambac will take it back and refund the conversion kit price.”

Skygo and Ambac are targeting the heaviest trucks with the largest engines.

It’s “a unique technology that delivers 100% drivability, and 60% diesel fuel savings,” says Ambac VP Robert Isherwood.

‘Impressive Environmental ROI’

“The system delivers a very compelling financial ROI, and just as importantly, a very impressive environmental ROI,” Skygo says.

The company’s current dual fuel system is available as an aftermarket upgrade for 2007 to 2009 Cummins ISX engines.

“According to data provided to the EPA by an independent laboratory,” Skygo says, “the system reduced emissions up to 20% and demonstrated displacements (natural gas substitution) of approximately 60%.

“Although the results are not in, the Series 60 and the DD15 are expected to perform just as well.”
