U.S. EPA approves Landi Renzo’s CNG system for the Ford 7.3L engine
Landi Renzo USA has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification for the Ford 7.3L engine covering Class 4-7 vehicles. The Ford models are included in the EPA CNG certification are: F-450/550, F-650/750, F-53/59, and E-450. California Air Resources Board (CARB) certification on the 7.3L is expected in late Q2 2020.
The Landi Renzo USA eco-fuel CNG system for the 7.3L engine is used in airport and hotel shuttle buses, delivery trucks, service trucks, large package trucks as well as other vocational offerings. Many of these vehicles will be able to take advantage of various grant funding opportunities. Moreover, for fleets utilizing the Landi Renzo USA system, the Ford warranty remains fully in place.
“Our EPA certification is result of the tremendous work of many individuals. We also want to recognize Ford’s support in helping us produce a world class CNG product,” said Paul Shaffer, EVP for Landi Renzo USA.
During this 18-month effort, Landi Renzo USA conducted extensive engine and vehicle testing to meet the stringent Ford Q-185 gaseous prep guidelines and demonstrate full useful life durability.
