The Altech-Eco CNG system for the Ford Transit is Ford QVM approved and is available as bi-fuel or dedicated.

The dedicated system, available in warm weather states only, enables the vehicle to operate 100% on CNG and the bi-fuel version enables the vehicle to operate on either CNG or gasoline. The Altech-Eco CNG systems allow users to take advantage of using CNG as a cleaner burning, domestically produced and more economical alternative fuel.

[The press release states] “They deliver excellent horsepower, torque towing capacity and have no fuel economy loss. They handle ultimate load situations and perform well in extreme cold or extreme heat, high or low altitudes, or any inclement weather condition.”
