The new AutoGas LPG Evacuation Pump from Blossman Services is said to be the first of its kind for the U.S. market.

“This one of a kind, patent pending, Autogas LPG Evacuation System can evacuate a fuel pump-equipped LPI [liquid propane injection] vehicle tank filled to 80% with 44 useable propane gallons in 1.5 hours to zero PSI tank pressure without venting any propane into the atmosphere,” states a release.

Workplace Efficiency

“Autogas fleets and trained autogas technicians now have a service tool available that allows them to safely work on their vehicles on their own timelines,” Blossman says.

The compressed air-powered pump may also be used to transfer propane fuel from one vehicle to another, or to a separate propane storage vessel.

Zebulon for Impco CNG & Propane

January 12, 2016 in CNG, Companies, NGVs, Propane by Rich Piellisch  |  No Comments

Distribution Deal Covers Third-Year & High-Mileage Work

Iowa’s Zebulon Innovations said yesterday that it’s been named the exclusive U.S. distributor for Impco Automotive’s third model year and beyond compressed natural gas and propane autogas (LPG) vehicle conversions, as well as systems for newer vehicles that have exceeded Impco’s original 25,000-mile odometer restriction.


Zebulon-ImpcoZebulon says it “will lead all phases of Impco’s third model year and beyond conversions, and conversions for vehicles that have exceeded Impco’s original 25,000 mile restriction including marketing, sales, distribution, and technical support.”

Zebulon for Zavoli Too

“With two of the top vehicle conversion systems in the world now available to the United States via one distributor, it is unfathomable why a fleet or installer would consider any other Certified third model year or IUL EPA conversion system,” Zebulon CEO Ken Boyle said in a release.

Zebulon notes too that it is the exclusive North American importer and distributor of CNG and LPG automotive conversion systems from Italy’s Zavoli, targeting vehicle conversions that fall under the U.S. EPA’s IUL/intermediate useful life guidelines.

Both Zavoli and Impco are units of Fuel Systems Solutions, Inc. – which is currently in the midst of a merger with Westport (F&F, October 26).
