CNG Conversions of 2015 F-250, F-350 Now Covered By Both EPA and CARB

Westport says the California Air Resources Board (CARB) has certified model-year 2015 Ford F-250 and F-350 pickup trucks with the 6.2-liter Ford engine that are fitted with dedicated compressed natural gas (CNG) WiNG Power Systems.

The company had already received certification from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the same CNG system configurations on 2015 F-250 and F-350 trucks, as well as received CARB certification for model-year 2014 Ford F-150 pickup trucks with the 3.7-liter Ford engine and WiNG Power System.

The EPA- and CARB-certified Westport WiNG system installations performed on 2015 F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks are available with a 17 GGE, 23 GGE or 27 GGE CNG tank, the company says.

The conversions are conducted through Ford's Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) program, whereby all Westport NGV conversions undergo the same safety testing required for Ford OEM products, and the original vehicle warranty remains intact following the conversion.
