Diesel 2 Gas, Inc. (D2G), headquartered in Tampa, Florida, has received US Environmental protection Agency (EPA) approval for its dual-fuel conversion system for diesel Class 8 trucks in several engine family configurations. Branded as Dual Flex+, the D2G system has completed multiple operational trials over the past year, achieving 60+% gas substitution of diesel without loss of performance compared to diesel operation.
“We have developed the product the natural gas vehicle revolution has been demanding for heavy duty trucks,” said Elio Muller, D2G company founder. “These trucks have been performing in regular work duty cycles, pulling loads and making money for the owners. The D2G product delivers at a price that allows the fuel cost savings to payback their investment in less than a year.”
EPA approval on Detroit Diesel Series 60 engines up to model year 2006 in 12 and 14 liter configurations is the launch pad for the system, with subsequent approvals anticipated for Caterpillar, Cummins, Mack and International engine families up to 2006.
D2G has enhanced this proven, low gas pressure, intake air fumigation technology to run on electronic controlled Class 7 and Class 8 truck engines. Conversion to the Dual Flex+ operation does not require modification of the engine and can typically be completed in a matter of hours. The system is compatible with both compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquid natural gas (LNG) fuel storage systems. System development to include engine families for 2007 to 2010 is in progress.
