About the Cummins Westport ISL G
The Cummins Westport ISL G, an 8.9 litre stoichiometric cooled-exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) engine, meets 2010 EPA emissions, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and offers top-level performance and efficiency. The ISL G engine operates on either compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG), both of which are cost effective, low carbon, and low emissions fuels. With ratings up to 320 hp and 1,000 lb-ft of torque, the ISL G is 2010 compliant with a maintenance free three way catalyst (TWC) and does not require the use of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) or a diesel particulate filter (DPF). CNG and LNG fuel tanks can be configured to suit customer applications and range requirements. More information about the ISL G can be found at: www.cumminswestport.com/products/islg.php
