IMPCO Automotive is the exclusive Ford Approved Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) to offer Bi-Fuel LPG systems for the F-150. As part of the QVM Program their engineers work closely with Ford to ensure the highest quality systems. This conversion can be purchased via one of IMPCO’s Certified Installers or through any Ford Dealer and financed by Ford Motor Credit, Fleet Management Companies and most major lending agencies. The LPG truck will be offered with either a standard steel tank or an innovative conformable aluminum tank to allow a lower profile in the bed while maximizing fuel capacity. This option will allow fleet users to put a standard tool box in their bed above the tank, while still carrying 30+ gallons of propane. The OEM gasoline tank is left intact.
“The Market has been asking for an OEM supported LPG capable ½ ton truck. Our systems will allow F-150 operators to achieve the desired ROI of alternative fuels with the assurance of customer support and service through Ford dealerships.”
~ Jeff Hall, Director of Sales & Marketing
IMPCO Automotive is a global industry leader in the design, development, and installation of alternative fuel solutions, working with some of the largest and most influential OEM’s in the world.
Ford announced availability of the hardened version of the engine at ACT Expo 2015 last month in Dallas (F&F, May 4).
The gaseous-prep engine allows Qualified Vehicle Modifiers like Impco to offer the popular F-150, LPG/propane-powered on a ship-thru basis with full Ford warranty.
Sequential Vapor Injection and a Conformable Fuel Tank
The Impco propane autogas system uses proprietary sequential vapor fuel injection technology.
All Cab Configurations
Impco will offer an innovative conformable aluminum tank to allow a lower profile in the bed while maximizing fuel capacity. “The option will allow fleet users to put a standard tool box in their bed above the tank,” the company says, “while still carrying 30-plus gallons of propane.” The OEM gasoline tank is left intact. Impco’s new propane-fueled truck will be available with all F-150 cab configurations.
The propane autogas-fueled Impco F-150 will be U.S. EPA-certified with California approval to follow, Hall told F&F, “if the business case is there.”
Impco is also moving ahead with a California-certified bi-fuel cargo/passenger van on a GM chassis. Stay Tuned!
