Agility Fuel Solutions, a global provider of clean fuel solutions for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, announced it has received 2021 California Air Resources Board (CARB) and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification for its natural gas fuel system when installed on the General Motors 6.0 L V8 engine.
“These 2021 CARB and EPA certifications demonstrate our continued commitment to driving product development and staying at the forefront in the medium-duty vehicle segment,” said Seung Baik, Agility president. “With the Agility 6.0 L engine fuel system, customers have an attractive option to control fuel costs and meet fleet sustainability goals through the expansion of clean fuel vehicles in their fleet.”
This new product from Agility enables vehicles such as the Freightliner Custom Chassis MT45 and MT55 walk-in vans, which are built to handle payloads of up to 23,000 lb., to be upfitted with Agility’s proprietary natural gas controls and fuel system to conform with the proposed 2024-2027 new CARB NOX emission regulations, as well as EPA’s standards issued under the Clean Air Act.
Agility said it designed this 6.0 L engine fuel system to simplify vehicle integration and significantly lower the upfront cost.
A business of Hexagon Composites, Agility and its affiliates’ product offerings include natural gas, hydrogen, and battery electric energy storage and delivery systems, Type 4 composite natural gas cylinders, propane, and natural gas fuel systems, and propane dispensers.
