DETROIT, Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Icom North America, LLC based in New Hudson Michigan announces the full production release of its game-changing patented Icom JTGhp® Propane Liquid Direct Injection System.
EPA Certified for both Monofuel or Bifuel versions for a wide variety of Ford and Lincoln vehicle platforms for the very popular Ford 3.5 Ecoboost engines including 2015, 2016 and 2017 model years:
- Ford: Police Interceptor Utility, Police Interceptor Sedan, Explorers, F150, Taurus, Flex, Edge and Expedition models
- Lincoln: MKT, MKS, MKZ, Navigator, and Livery Services
"The extremely low emissions achieved on the Ford Direct Injection Ecoboost 3.5 engines utilizing the Icom JTGhp® Propane Liquid Direct Injection System are a game-changer and demonstrate Icom's Propane Liquid Injection System as the leader for Direct Injection. Emissions during EPA Certification Testing were extremely low, NOx 0.01, Particulate Matter is Zero, CO 0.7 and HC was below 0.04. No gasoline is utilized in either the Bifuel or Monofuel versions. Gasoline is only a backup fuel if utilizing the Bifuel version," notes Ralph Perpetuini CEO of Icom.
"Icom leads the way with our patented Liquid Direct Injection System as it works precisely how Direct Injection engines were designed for. We are not vapor port injecting into the manifold which fully defeats the purpose of Direct Injection. We appreciate the support of the Propane Education and Resource Council (PERC) and the Propane Industry for supporting our certifications," noted Albert Venezio Chairman of Icom.
Icom's Direct Injection Systems installations are rolling out through the extensive Icom Dealer Network across North America.
Icom is a founding Member of The United Propane Autogas Solutions Group (UPAS) bringing best Autogas solutions and one-Stop Shopping to fleets.
