Agility Fuel Solutions has released its fifth generation ProRail CNG fuel system.
Since the ProRail family of compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel systems was introduced in 2016, Agility says it has been used in a wide variety of demanding applications, and powers tens of thousands of commercial fleet vehicles on the road.
With fuel capacity options ranging from 30-60 diesel gallons equivalent (DGE), and the ability to be installed on one or both sides of the vehicle, Agility says the ProRail can be configured to meet a wide range of fuel capacity requirements. Building upon this proven track record, the new ProRail brings with it a series of advancements and new standard features.
The company says its newest ProRail is 30 lb., lighter than the previous generation ProRail, remaining the lightest side-mount CNG fuel system available on the market, up to 25 percent lighter than the competition. Agility’s integrated Fuel Management Module (FMM) also is now standard on the ProRail and provides a fast-fill receptacle for up to 13 percent faster refueling, a de-fueling receptacle, and ignition disconnect fuel caps.
The Agility BlueiQ Smart Gauge is also now standard equipment on the ProRail, reducing range anxiety by providing real-time fuel economy, fuel level, and distance to empty, the company says. BlueiQ’s Eco Mode and Driver Feedback help drivers manage fuel economy and avoid unplanned stops.
Finally, a comprehensive suite of tools, including Cummins INSITE and Connected Diagnostics, can be integrated with most major telematics providers to support data-driven fleet management, the company adds.
The ProRail’s OEM-quality painted aluminum covers also can be matched to any fleet’s color requirements to help ensure a first-class presentation, and optional integrated side steps can be fitted to suit a wide variety of vehicles. And, like the generation before it, the ProRail can be combined with Agility’s ProCab behind-the-cab CNG fuel systems for added fuel capacity and range.
“We know how essential frame rail space is for our fleet clients,” says Eric Bippus, senior vice president, sales and marketing. “Our team worked very hard to decrease the footprint of the ProRail CNG fuel system, and to leverage Agility’s Drop & Go mounting bracket system for ease of installation. Additionally, we have also included our Fuel Management Module and BlueiQ Smart Gauge as standard equipment on all ProRail systems.”
