Asheville, NC /PRNewswire/ - For the first time in the U.S., Port Fuel Direct Injection (PFDI) technology fueled by propane autogas is a viable solution, and the results are powerful. As more fleets move toward Port Fuel Direct Injection engines, Alliance AutoGas (AAG) has found a solution for those who want to lower their emissions and use cost effective propane autogas. AAG has successfully engineered PFDI conversion systems for the 2018 Ford F-150 in two engine choices: 3.3 Liter V6 and 5.0 Liter V8. This new technology features autogas as the primary fuel, while strategically utilizing gasoline as a combustion lubricant. At the 2018 Work Truck Show in Indianapolis, AAG will display two vehicles with the new Propane-PFDI (P-PFDI) technology offering participants the opportunity to view the new autogas system.
The 2018 F-150 is only the beginning of P-PFDI technology for Alliance. AAG engineers expect the P-PFDI engine to continue growth within the larger vehicle markets. "We plan to be prepared for the advancement in OEM technology with the complementary propane autogas conversion technology," said Ed Hoffman, President of Blossman Services, Inc. "Propane autogas is the most popular alternative fuel world-wide, proven in more than 28 million vehicles, and we must always be prepared to meet the demand of fleets throughout the country."
Stephen Holland, Director of Engineering for Blossman Services, Inc. explained that his team noticed a major shift in OEM technology several years ago as manufacturers began to implement PFDI engines in small cars. Holland said, "PFDI is a fairly complicated technology, and we knew it was only a matter of time before PFDI became widespread, including implementation into big trucks. It was important for us to begin engineering an autogas solution quickly." Holland continued, "We were prepared with a conversion system as soon as Ford introduced the first PFDI commercial truck. We know that PFDI will continue to grow, and we will be ready for the next class of vehicles as they come to market."
AAG's platform specific engineered P-PFDI conversion system allows fleets to utilize autogas and experience top performance with the following features and benefits:
The new P-PFDI technology will be unveiled at the 2018 Work Truck Show. Fleet managers who are considering the cost and environmental benefits of alternative fuels will be able to interact first-hand with the autogas system that significantly lowers their emissions and per vehicle expense.
