CleanFUEL USA announced its agreement with Westport Innovations Inc. to serve as a supplier for the Westport WiNG 2016 Ford 5.0L F-150 propane truck. The Westport WiNG Power System will employ the CleanFUEL USA Liquid Propane Injection (LPI) technology. Westport's F-150 with liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), or propane, offers Ford QCM/QVM warranty protection with expected EPA and CARB certifications.
“CleanFUEL USA and Westport are both providing high quality, alternative fuel-powered fleet vehicles with lower emissions and vast economic benefits,” said Curtis Donaldson, founder and president at CleanFUEL USA. “The Westport WiNG Power System propane offering demonstrates that, and we look forward to expanding our relationship with future opportunities.”
The F-150 includes Ford’s new propane gaseous-prep package, now available on model year 2016 vehicles. The truck is equipped with a 5.0 liter engine and new body with high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy, reducing the weight of the truck by as much as 700 lbs. The fuel packages include a standard 23 gallon underbody tank, an extended 39 gallon underbody tank or an in-bed 60 gallon tank.
“With the 2016 Ford F-150, Westport is delivering a variety of alternative fuel solutions for fleets,” said Paul Shaffer, vice president and managing director of Westport’s Dallas operations. “In addition to the dedicated LPI technology, Westport offers a compressed natural gas option to support sustainability for corporations, municipalities and organizations using the popular utility vehicle. We are pleased to team with CleanFUEL USA in bringing this high-performing and environmentally-friendly propane truck to market.”
