CleanFUEL USA Introduces New Liquid Propane Injection System for GM 6.0L Engine

CleanFUEL USA, a leading supplier of alternative fuel infrastructure and propane engine systems has introduced its latest Liquid Propane Injection (LPI) system for the General Motors (GM) 6.0-liter engine. The new engine system will be available the first quarter of 2010 and the company is now taking orders to meet the increased demand for greener fleet vehicles, as the Department of Energy (DOE) starts to award stimulus funds this December.

Propane projects were one of the largest beneficiaries of alternative fuel grants given under the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), securing $33.5 million.

The new 6.0L propane engine system is an OEM replacement for new gasoline powered engines, and is designed to convert light-duty fleets, such as passenger vans, shuttle buses, walk-in vans and utility and service vehicles to operate on propane. CleanFUEL USA’s advanced LPI technology provides the same horsepower, torque and performance as gasoline-powered engines, yet produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions. When the 6.0L is made generally available early next year, it will be the first dedicated, GM light-duty propane engine to be EPA and CARB (California Air Resources Board) certified. Systems are available through CleanFUEL USA Master Dealers and Preferred Installers.

They state that the power torque are equivalent emissions lower.
This is really good to hear. It should be ahead of the pack.
The one I am waiting for though is that the MPG is the same. I believe this should be possible despite the lower calorie.

And the D.I. version is coming out - when?

I would rather use renewable DME in truck diesels. Dual fuel plug hybrids using renewable DME could really reduce oil imports.

DME (syth) would be worth a look as diesel replacement option as Hydrogen issues prove the brick wall.

There are a suite of gaseous fuel handling systems and mature technology. Hydrogen being the worst practical end. DME syth the best.
