EcoDual has achieved authorization from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to begin installing its systems on all 29 engine families of the 2004 to 2009 Cummins ISM engines. According to the company, its EcoDual conversion kit for the Cummins ISM 11L engine will provide fleets with an opportunity to substitute low cost natural gas for expensive diesel fuel. EcoDual says its natural gas-to-diesel fuel substitution rate is the highest among all available dual fuel conversion kits, providing enormous fuel cost savings and the shortest return on investment. The cost of the dual fuel system is often recovered in operational savings within one year without any government incentives.
“EcoDual is committed to providing a major cost savings to truck fleet owners,” said CEO and President Scott Myers. “This approval of our ISM system greatly expands our dual fuel product line to nearly 50 engine families that can run on CNG or LNG. As with all of our other products, EcoDual will provide a 2 year/250,000 mile warranty and lease-to-own financing for immediate fuel savings.”
Over the next 12 months, EcoDual will be releasing multiple systems certified for newer trucks with the Cummins ISM and ISX engines and other engine families from Detroit Diesel, Mack, PACCAR and Caterpillar.
