BEAUFORT, S.C., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- EcoDual Inc., a leading provider of EPA approved diesel-to-natural-gas dual fuel conversion systems for heavy duty diesel trucks, and Clean Vehicle Solutions, LLC (CVS), a NY-based end-to-end compressed natural gas (CNG) solutions provider, have signed a distribution and servicing agreement to deliver and support the EcoDual product line.
EcoDual's system provides the highest natural-gas-for-diesel substitution rate for dual fuel conversion systems. As a result, fleet operators can achieve both overall fuel cost savings of more than 30% and the shortest return on investment. The cost of the dual fuel system is often recovered in operational savings within one year without any government incentives.
"CVS gives us a strong delivery, service and support partner in the northeastern US with well recognized expertise in converting vehicles to run on natural gas," said EcoDual CEO and President Scott Myers. "The New York, New Jersey, Connecticut tri-state area is a huge market for EcoDual systems and CVS's excellent reputation in CNG vehicles is important for our success."
"We have installed thousands of natural gas systems in lighter vehicles and have been seeking the right solution for heavy trucks," said Clean Vehicle Solutions CEO Dean Sloane. "The EcoDual system delivers critical fuel cost savings for truck fleets and provides an excellent opportunity to continue the expansion of our market leading solutions."
To officially launch this collaborative effort, CVS will hold an open house this Thursday, January 31st between 9:00am and 3:00pm at its new facility, 169 Western Highway, West Nyack, NY 10994. Attendees will have the opportunity to view a Class 8 Peterbilt tractor equipped with a Cummins ISX 15L engine that has been converted with the US EPA approved EcoDual dual fuel system.

EcoDual, Inc. is an independent provider of patent pending, dual fuel conversion systems enabling existing heavy duty diesel trucks to operate on a combination of diesel and natural gas. In dual fuel operation, the trucks maintain full torque and power with no loss of miles per gallon. Systems can be configured for ranges of more than 800 miles on CNG or LNG. Equally important, there is no "range anxiety" with EcoDual systems as they automatically run on 100% diesel if the natural gas tank ever runs out.
