Landi Renzo recently received certification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for its compressed natural gas (CNG) conversions on the Ford 2016 F-650, F-750 and F-53 and F-59 stripped chassis models.
The certification applies to Ford’s 6.8-liter V10 engine. The California Air Resources Board, or CARB, has also approved of the CNG conversion, according to greenfleetmagazine.com.
Model year 2016 marks the first time that Ford began offering the F-650 and F-750 with a gaseous prep package. Ford has designated Landi Renzo as a Qualified Vehicle Modifier.
Delivery fleet companies, such as UPS and FedEx, use Ford’s stripped chassis models. Once these vehicles are equipped for the road, they’re commonly called step-vans or walk-in vans.
An autogas conversion is also available from Landi for Ford’s stripped chassis.
