Landi Renzo USA, an alternative automotive fuel systems and components provider and Reading Equipment & Distribution, provider of truck equipment and related services, have partnered to produce and deliver compressed natural gas (CNG) powered vehicles directly to Ford dealerships across North America.
As a Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) of Ford vehicles, “Landi Renzo’s bi-fuel CNG system will be fully integrated as close to the OEM level as possible and installed on Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks by Reading Equipment & Distribution at its Ford ship-thru facility in Louisville, Kentucky,” said Andrea Landi, President of Landi Renzo USA.
The EPA certified Landi Renzo/Reading bi-fuel CNG system allows Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks to operate on either natural gas or gasoline. The 21 and 24 gasoline-gallon-equivalent tanks are part of a system that complies with the Federal Motor Vehicles Safety Standards and Regulations. Service can be conducted by any authorized local dealer and will be backed by a comprehensive warranty that mirrors factory specifications.
“We are pleased to have entered into this agreement with Landi Renzo” commented Mike Snyder, Director of Sales for Reading Equipment & Distribution. “As the world’s largest alternative fuel modifier, they bring innovation and experience to this emerging growth market. Coupling our experience and facilities with them will allow us to serve the marketplace in an aggressive and cost efficient manner.”
