LPG Overview

LPG Overview

Liquid Propane Gas (LPG), or propane autogas, is created by refining petroleum or natural gas. When used to fuel internal combustion engines, LPG reduces nitrogen oxide and carbon emissions, making it a cleaner-burning fuel than diesel or gasoline. Although LPG has a lower energy content than traditional internal combustion engine fuels, LPG vehicles are less expensive to operate due to the lower cost of the fuel and fewer associated maintenance costs. LPG vehicles deliver approximately the same power, acceleration and cruising speed as traditionally powered vehicles.

The S2G truck is powered by a Liquid Propane Injection (LPI) system. LPI is a fully integrated and factory-installed propane autogas fuel system; no aftermarket modifications are required. It’s a factory-engineered solution with numerous benefits.

Engine

V8 “Big Block” LPI Engine

The FCCC S2G’s 8-liter, 339 hp at 4100 rpm engine is supplied by Powertrain Integration, with a proven long block as its core. The engine can provide 495 lb/ft of torque at 3100 rpm, and its factory-installed liquid propane system is not a ship-through or aftermarket installation, which ensures seamless integration and consistent quality.
