CNG fuel system

  • 13-May-2016 11:29 EDT

Agility Fuel Systems’ 2016 160 DGE behind-the-cab compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system is said to deliver the most efficient package of any CNG heavy-duty vehicle system on the road today. The system is mounted up to 6 in closer to the cab for improved aerodynamics and to leave more available rail space. Weighing 2150 lb, this model features a compact design as well as enhanced performance, durability and safety while filling up to 13% faster than the nearest competitor. Key features include aircraft-grade aluminum structure mounted on rubber isolators to reduce stress on components; neck-mounted, anti-tank spin design to eliminate tank rotation that can stress fuel lines and Geomet coated fasteners for enhanced corrosion protection.
