What vehicles can run on CNG?
The purchase process is seamless- fleets
work through local dealers, who make
arrangements with up-fitters, so
vehicles carry full warranties
• Dedicated- operates only on
natural gas
• Bifuel- operates on natural
gas as well as gasoline
• Many conventional gasoline
vehicles can run on CNG.
• OEM’s include Honda, BAF,
Landirenzo, and Cummins
• 43 CNG vehicle engines are
certified by EPA, available
through up-fitters, carry
factory warranties
Look for Fully Integrated Alternate Energy Solutions
 Light-duty vehicles are crash tested to
ensure conformance to FMVSS-303
 Not done “by analysis” like others
 The only CNG converter to achieve
“3Q” Status with Ford
 QVM - Qualified Vehicle Modifier
 QFC – Quality Fleet Care
 QCM – Qualified Calibration Modifier
 This means that BAF is utilizing
Ford OEM calibration standards for
CNG and not “hacking into” or
performing an “unauthorized
reflash” of the original calibration
