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.
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.
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.
