FCCC’s S2G and Thomas Built C2 Are Both in Full Production

CleanFuel USA is talking up its role in two new propane autogas powered vehicles, both now in full production: the S2G truck chassis by Freightliner Customer Chassis Corp and the Thomas Built Saf-T-Liner C2 school bus.

Propane autogas proponent CleanFuel USA is promoting its role on the S2G by Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp and the Saf-T-Liner C2 school bus by Thomas Built. Both are powered by the 8.0-liter ‘PIthon’ engine by Powertrain Integration with CleanFuel USA fuel system.

Propane autogas proponent CleanFuel USA is promoting its role on the S2G by Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp and the Saf-T-Liner C2 school bus by Thomas Built. Both are powered by the 8.0-liter ‘PIthon’ engine by Powertrain Integration with CleanFuel USA fuel system.

CleanFuel USA supplies the liquid propane injection fuel system for the vehicles’ 8.0-liter engine by Powertrain Integration, including fuel rails, lines, tank package with fuel pump, and control module. The engine is now marketed as the PIthon (F&F, May 11).

“The CleanFuel USA LPI propane autogas fuel system is technologically advanced, fully integrated and factory-installed, requiring no aftermarket modifications, for seamless integration and consistent quality,” CleanFuel USA said this morning.

Potential? ‘Huge’

Both vehicles are U.S. EPA- and California Air Resources Board-certified.

“We are ecstatic that the S2G and C2 are in full production, as demand is strong in the fleet industry for propane-powered solutions that meet these two vehicles’ market needs,” said, CleanFuel USA founder and managing director Curtis Donaldson said in a release.

“With a significant order bank and ever-increasing customer interest, the potential for both products is huge.”

The PIthon engine produces 495 foor-pounds of torque at 3100 rpm and 339 horsepower at 4100 rpm, CleanFuel USA. Both the S2G truck and C2 bus feature Allison 2300 automatic transmission with PTO provision.
