Greenkraft will use the three-valve engine for compressed natural gas upfits of Ford F-550, F-650 and F-750 trucks and B-59 strip chassis vehicles, says sales director Frank Ziegler.

The company has more Ford engine certifications pending, bolstering a line-up that already includes 4.8- and 6.0-liter GM engines.

Greenkraft uses CNG fuel systems, including Type IV cylinders, from Quantum, Ziegler told F&F. Both 32.5 gasoline gallon equivalent and 65 GGE packages are available.

Separately, Greenkraft is to receive $1,284,000 from the California Energy Commission, “of which $400,000 is reserved for the buy-down of 20 natural gas vehicles of 14,001 to 26,000 pounds gross vehicle weight, and $884,000 is reserved for the buy-down of 34 natural gas vehicles of 26,001 pounds gross vehicle weight and greater.”
