Used in natural gas vehicle conversions, Go Natural CNG’s fuel interface module (FIM) reduces the number of potential high-pressure CNG (compressed natural gas) leak points and speeds up installation time. The FIM acts as the connection interface for the fuel storage tank(s), the fuel fill nozzle, and the pressure regulator. According to the company, in typical CNG vehicle conversions the FIM reduces the number of potential high-pressure leak points by more than 50%. This is possible because the FIM body is machined from a single block of aluminum and combines the coalescing filter, quarter turn valve, pressure gauge, secondary check valve, and electronic transducers into one unit. Since the FIM combines so many features into one unit, the cost is less than traditional components and installation time is reduced by up to 4 h per vehicle, claims the company.
