CleanFuel North America, Inc. (CleanFuel USA) announced this week that the company has signed a distribution agreement with Impco Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Fuel Systems Solutions, Inc. Under the new agreement, CleanFuel USA will distribute Impco’s bi-fuel Sequent system, a dual propane and gasoline fuel system certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for conversion of light-duty General Motors and Ford vehicles to enable them to run on propane. CleanFUEL USA will install Impco systems and provide vehicle service and support through its partners.

Impco’s bi-fuel system is a certified engine conversion for the following vehicles: the 2007 5.4L Ford F150; the 2008 and 2009 3.5L and 3.9L Chevrolet Impala; 4.8-liter Chevrolet G Van and GMC Savana; the 6.0-liter Chevrolet Silverado, Express, and G Van; 6.0-liter GMC Sierra and Savana; the 2009 5.3L Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe; and 5.3L GMC Yukon and Sierra.

According to CleanFuel USA, adding Impco’s bi-fuel system to its product line, now gives the company a complete alternative fuel solution for fleet managers, including: EPA-certified propane/gasoline conversion kits for existing vehicles, propane refueling infrastructure equipment, fleet management solutions and advanced liquid propane injection engines for OEM vehicles that meet 2010 emissions standards.

“Propane is a viable fleet fuel that when fully utilized with today’s advanced technologies creates significant value for fleets,” said Curtis Donaldson, president & CEO of CleanFuel USA. “With the price of gasoline and diesel creeping back up, we are making strategic moves to be ready when the demand for alternative fuels spikes. We are excited to be working with Impco Technologies, in addition to our fuel network partners such as ConocoPhillips, and are prepared to support the industry as it moves into a growth phase.”
