ALEXANDRIA, VA & NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – Sunny DeWakar, CEO of NGV Motori, USA, and Dean Sloane, managing director of Clean Vehicle Solutions, LLC (CVS), issued a joint statement Oct. 23 confirming the EPA’s approval of a diesel-to-CNG dedicated package for the Diesel International DT 466 series engine.

The availability of the DT 466 series engine is an important landmark due to its popularity in the school/transit bus and delivery truck market and forms an integral part of the two companies’ ongoing collaboration in meeting the needs of the rapidly expanding demand for vehicles powered by CNG, they stated.

The companies have already partnered together to successfully engineer, fabricate, and install the first EPA-certified, dedicated diesel to CNG conversion package for the Mercedes 906 Engine. 

Conversions may be done on any of the 2005 to 2010 model-year diesel DT 466 series engines. NGV Motori, USA/CVS’s partnership is also making available EPA-certified, CNG dedicated conversion for the Ford E-450 Super duty 6.8L V-10 engine and the E-350 Super Duty 5.4L gas engine. Models created up through 2007 are eligible for conversion.
