AFV Solutions, Inc., an alternative fuel vehicle solution provider, has received a certificate of conformity from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its propane conversion system for the 2005 model year Ford Motor Co. 4.6-liter engine. The system, which allows a vehicle to operate on inexpensive, clean and abundant propane will be installed on the Ford Crown Victoria, Lincoln Town Car and Mercury Grand Marquis automobiles.
"We chose this Ford engine family because the 4.6-liter-equipped Crown Victoria is the fleet vehicle of choice for taxi services, law enforcement, as well as state and federal government agencies throughout the U.S." said AFVS president Jeff Groscost. "Fleet operators that retrofit with our system and purchase bulk propane can substantially reduce their fuel costs, often by up to 40%, while increasing their vehicles' longevity and reducing maintenance costs."
AFV Solutions' systems are based on a technology platform which has been used in a commercial application with more than 30 million operating miles in the field.
