VENCHURS COMPLETES CNG POWERED ROAD TRIP FROM DETROIT TO LAS VEGAS


Venchurs, which attended the 2012 SEMA Show, towed a customized VWerks’ vehicle from Detroit to Las Vegas and back using a converted bi-fuel Ford F-350.

Adrian, MI (Nov., 2012) –Venchurs Vehicle Systems, a CNG Converter for Ford, attended the 2012 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show in Las Vegas Oct. 29-Nov. 2 with its sister company, VWerks. A 2012 bi-fuel powered Ford F-350 made the trek from Michigan to Las Vegas and back towing one of the custom vehicles VWerks’ debuted at the show. 

The road trip, which covered nearly 4,000 miles total, was designed to address two of the biggest concerns surrounding compressed natural gas powered vehicles—infrastructure and loss of power. The bi-fuel model eliminates any concern over range anxiety with its combined range of over 650 miles, and with CNG prices nearing half the cost of regular gasoline in some places, the savings of using CNG on a road trip are immense.

Venchurs is pleased to report that as expected, there was no noticeable reduction in towing capabilities while running on CNG. The bi-fuel Ford, which towed a 10,000 plus pound trailer over 4,000 miles performed exceptionally well.

“We understand that infrastructure and loss of power are two of the biggest concerns to those contemplating the adoption of CNG powered vehicles,” said Jeff Wyatt, CEO of Venchurs. “Through careful planning, you can drive across the country on CNG, and what is great about our bi-fuel option is that you don’t have to worry about running out of the fuel—when necessary you can use regular gasoline and still reap immense savings.”

Venchurs offers both CNG dedicated and bi-fuel conversions of Ford Super Duty trucks as a QVM (Qualified Vehicle Modifier) for Ford Motor Company. Venchurs has a ship-thru facility in Louisville, Kentucky, as well as a remote ship-thru facility in Adrian, Michigan where trucks can further be customized to meet all the needs of the customer. From suspension modifications to bumpers, wheels and tires, Venchurs is a one-stop shop for all your company fleet needs.

Venchurs is currently selling a select number of its 2011/2012 demo unit trucks, both bi-fuel and CNG dedicated, to make room for new inventory. Those interested in purchasing the lightly used trucks should contact Kelly Muldoon at KMuldoon@Venchurs.com for more information.
