American Power Group Expands Demo Truck Program For Class 8 Heavy Haul Vehicles In Wake of Dramatic Increases in Diesel and Oil Prices
Cummins ISX 15L and Detroit Diesel DD15 Engines Available To Demo
ALGONA, IA / ACCESSWIRE / March 9, 2022 / American Power Group Corporation ("APG") (OTC PINK:APGI) today announced the expansion of their Class 8 heavy duty truck demonstration program to include a 2014 Freightliner CA125 Cascadia day cab equipped with a Cummins ISX 15L (450 HP) diesel engine, APG's V6000 Dual Fuel System, Eaton 10 speed transmission and a 170" wheelbase. APG also has a 2015 Freightliner CC132 Coronado sleeper cab equipped with a Detroit Diesel DD15 (505HP/1850 lb-ft) diesel engine, APG's V6000 Dual Fuel System, an Eaton 13 speed transmission and a 286" wheelbase as pictured below available. In addition to APG-owned demonstration vehicles, APG will consider other demonstration programs for fleet operators to evaluate multiple dual fuel conversions on their existing fleets with minimal up-front costs.
The V6000 Dual Fuel System is a patented upgrade technology for existing diesel engines, seamlessly introducing natural gas into the induction system of the diesel engine while maintaining existing power and torque. APG's Dual Fuel System does not alter the OEM configuration or componentry and automatically returns the engine to 100% diesel operation should the natural gas supply be depleted, making it a preferred alternative energy choice for existing fleets.
With current diesel pump prices in the $5+ per gallon range, the ability to displace 50% of diesel consumption with cleaner burning and less expensive domestic natural gas, including renewable natural gas ("RNG"), provides operators the ability to realize meaningful net annual fuel savings, shorter ROIs, enhanced ESG compliance and significant emission reductions including NOX and CO2.
Chuck Coppa, APG's CEO/CFO stated, "There are approximately 2 million late-model Class 8 diesel trucks operating in the U.S. and assuming each drives 125,000 miles per year, at 6.5 miles per gallon that equates to approximately 39 billion gallons of diesel consumption. APG's dual fuel solution deployed in this market at a 50% displacement rate would eliminate the need for approximately 19.5 billion gallons, which due to refining practices would eliminate 4.5 million barrels of imported oil per day and replace it with readily available, domestic natural gas and/or renewable natural gas."
