TransTech adds additional Propane Autogas EPA certifications to Lineup

Posted by Greg Ezzell on Wed, Apr 25, 2012 @ 11:11 AM

TransTech Alternative Fuel Systems, a division of TransTech Energy, has announced EPA approval and certification for 3 new vehicles.  The new EPA certs are for the 2011 Ford 4.6L Flex Fuel Engine for the Ford Crown Victoria, Ford Crown Victoria Police, Lincoln Town Car and Mercury Marquis.

TransTech customizes and integates industry leading bi-fuel liquid autogas technology from Icom North America.  TransTech integrates propane autogas solutions for larger fleets who require OEM fit and functionality which will allow their vehicles to operate in a bi-fuel capacity- either liquid propane autogas or gasoline.   TransTech's system utilizes the factory fuel mapping and the factory ECM, thus is non-invasive, is simple to install and is a preferred solution for larger fleets requiring a standardized solution that can be diagnosed and maintained by their own maintenance personnel. 

Fleets of all sizes are converting their vehicles to propane autogas as the cost savings are simply to great to ignore and the performance is nearly equal to gasoline.  Currently propane autogas cost 40% less than regular unleaded.  Additionally propane autogas is domestically produced and is one of the cleanest alternative fuels available.

TRANSTECH ANNOUNCES SEVERAL NEW EPA CERTIFICATIONS OF ICOM BI-FUEL LIQUID PROPANE (AUTOGAS) INJECTION TECHNOLGY

Posted by Greg Ezzell on Thu, Oct 27, 2011 @ 10:08 AM

TransTech Alternative Fuel Systems, a division of TransTech Energy, is pleased to announce several new EPA Certifications of its bi-fuel propane autogas conversion system for many 2009, 2010 and 2011 Ford Light and Medium Duty Vehicles.  Icom North America, the patent holder and leading manufacturer of liquid propane injection vehicle technology, announce this week that they received final approvals and certificates for several vehicles that had been in the EPA testing and certification program for much of 2011.  The certs and approvals are primarily for 2009, 2010 and 2011 Ford 4.6L and 5.4L Light duty work trucks.  Approval for other Ford 4.6L passenger sedans are expected any day and other vehicle from Dodge and GM are in EPA technology verification process or scheduled to enter EPA testing in the near future, rounding a out a very busy and successful year for Icom's EPA Certification program for their bi-fuel propane autogas technology. 

Britt Medley, president of TransTech Energy, noted "I am excited to progress from Icom on their EPA Certification program.  This is a very time consuming and costly investment for Icom, but it demonstrates their commitment to their partners and the propane autogas market as a whole.  Icom is hands down the leader in automotive propane innovation and combined with TransTech's vehicle customization and integration providing an OEM fit and functionality to autogas alternative fuel conversions and these most recent EPA Certs, we anticipate considerable growth in our Alternative Fuel Division."

Icom now has EPA Certs in Ford's 4.6, 5.4 and 6.8L engine classes and unlike many of its competitors, these Certs are for newer model year vehicles, allowing fleets to get more useful life and ROI from their engine conversions.   David Kennedy, Director of Alternative Fuel at TransTech, added, "EPA Certification is a very important piece to our puzzle, many fleets we have been working with have aknowledged that they prefer Icom's liquid propane technology and the fact the system uses the factory ECU and factory fuel mapping, not requiring an additional vehicle computer or tuning, but the lack of EPA Certs was a draw back.  We knew they were coming, it was just a matter or going through the EPA process, which takes time.  With all of the obvious benefits of liquid injection technology and the EPA Certs to support it, I think we are well positioned with our product offering.  You can expect more EPA Certs to come and also expect much more from TransTech to support the propane autogas demand from our partners and fleet customers."
