The Dual Fuel Market

 

CNG for Diesel Applications

 

Natural Gas Vehicles (NGV’s) are becoming increasingly popular due to the cost savings, availability, and lower emissions. However, in the case of large engines, dedicated Natural Gas engines do not have the ability to maintain the torque required to perform their work.

Large Trucks, Stationary Engines, Mining Vehicles, and many other vehicles that must maintain their torque, are prime opportunities that can be easily converted to utilize alternative fuels with a 2Fuel Dual Fuel System.

While 2Fuel can be applied to any size diesel engine, our primary focus is on large HP engines where our patented ability to blend fuel throughout the complete high load cycle, with no loss of torque or HP, assures a much higher “End of Day Diesel Dilution Percentage” is attained with 2Fuel, vs our competitors. 2Fuel provides up to 60% higher dilution averages which translates into a much higher fuel savings and emission reduction vs others.

Global Market

There are over 7 million natural gas powered vehicles (NGV’s) on the streets world wide.

During the last 15 years 2Fuel Systems have been installed in many Countries throughout the world to address regional initiatives to reduce emissions or to utilize cheaper domestic alternative fuels.

Many customers, throughout the world, are already enjoying the benefits from one of the over 8000 2Fuel product installations. The product’s versatility is evident with a wide range of successful applications ranging from Class 8 Trucks, Utility service vehicles, and buses throughout the USA, Mexico, Columbia, and Taiwan, down to the smaller engines in the GM Isuzu in Thailand. 

 

Domestic United States Market

Class 8 Trucks

The United States has long relied on diesel engines for heavy duty transport. This is due in part to the excellent highway system, and the efficiency of the diesel engine combined with the HP required to pull their loads throughout the mountainous terrain found in many regions.  

According to the American trucking association (ATA) there are over 6.6 million heavy duty commercial trucks and they consume over 38 billion gallons of diesel fuel annually.

With Natural Gas infrastructure quickly developing over the past few years, coupled with the OEM exit of the 15L dedicated engine program, the USA Market is finally ready to grow from years of regional alternative fuel acceptance to a National Market opportunity.    

By using the 2Fuel System throughout the trucking industry, 19 billion gallons of diesel fuel could be displaced with clean, domestically produced, natural gas or propane.

 

Testimonial

"My name is Paul Cogar and I have driven trucks for 40 plus yrs. Including the Hawg Hauling, Kenworth trucks, with the Cummins ISX 15 liter 485 hp. for 40,000 miles on Dual Fuel, while loaded, with 79,000 lb. at all times. The 2Fuel kit ran very well and makes a clean burning engine even better. It has all the power on Dual Fuel, as on diesel, but it is cleaner. The oil stays cleaner and is bound to make the engine last longer.  The five converted trucks I drove, with the 79,000-lb. trailer, in Oklahoma were automatic transmissions and the automatic trucks preformed much better on the 2Fuel Dual Fuel system, vs operating on straight diesel, with a 79,000-lb. load. The original diesel trucks would shift from 5th to 6th gear, back and forth, on diesel, but with the 2Fuel system they would shift to 6th gear and had the torque stay there. The Dual Fuel conversions appeared to have more torque. I think it will be a very positive Dual Fuel system for the trucking Industry."

Stationary Engines

There are many regions throughout the USA that rely heavily on stationary engines to provide prime power or irrigation. While there are OEM Alternative Fuel solutions, for many of the smaller engines, the larger HP engines still rely heavily on diesel fuel.

Historically, the fuel of choice for these remote engines has been propane, as inexpensive infrastructure exists to support the fuel delivery. 

2Fuel is CARB certified for all diesel engines, 650 HP and under, using propane as the alternative fuel. A typical high HP stationary engine conversion will pay for itself in less than one year.

Testimonial

"We run a 4,000-head dairy on 9,000 acres in the San Joaquin Valley. One of our highest operating costs is pumping water to our animals and irrigating our crops, this is accomplished through our high cost in diesel engine maintenance, repair, engine replacement and fuel costs. We partnered with GCAT, bottom line, to save money on our fuel costs, where we are achieving fuel costs savings up to 35% with a 50-50 blend of diesel and LPG fuel. While achieving this savings we are also reducing exhaust emissions significantly, bringing our engines into compliance standards and we find that our engine filters and fluids are much cleaner which we believe extends the overall life of our engines. 2Fuel is a proven technology; it is durable and has given us a full return on investment in less than 10 months." - Mr. Maddox

How Much Can You Save with 2Fuel?

2Fuel delivers 60% more “End of Day Diesel Fuel Displacement” than any other Dual Fuel System.

2Fuel is the only Dual Fuel System that continues to blend fuels, throughout the complete high load cycle,
and maintains the original diesel engine specified OEM Torque and HP.
