Impco to offer ship-thru for Ford CNG, LPG conversions

June 20, 2013

Impco Automotive has been awarded ship-thru status by Ford Motor Co. as a gaseous fuels qualified vehicle modifier (QVM). This means Impco serves as a ship-thru installer for E-Series and Super Duty vehicles, including all F-250 through F-550 body styles, with Impco’s CNG bi-fuel prep package.

According to Impco, the ship-thru program facilitates the vehicle’s progress from Ford’s assembly plant into Impco’s assembly plant in Union City, IN, for CNG bi-fuel system installation before being sold to Ford dealers.

CNG/LPG conversion components and processes are designed and validated utilizing Impco’s technology as well as its engineering and OEM expertise. The entire gaseous fuel system adheres to Impco’s quality, durability, and safety testing requirements. The production process is accomplished according to Ford procedures.

Once the installation of the fuel system is complete, the vehicle re-enters Ford’s delivery channels to reach its destination to the final user’s site.
