American Power Group To Showcase Their V6000 Class 8 Truck Dual Fuel Technology At The National Star Route Mail Contractors Association’s August 2022 National Convention (APGI)
ALGONA, IA / ACCESSWIRE / June 27, 2022 / American Power Group Corporation (“APG”) (OTC PINK:APGI) announced they will be showcasing their V6000 Dual Fuel Technology for existing Class 8 diesel-powered trucks to the members attending the National Star Route Mail Contractors Association’s (“NSRMCA”) 2022 National Convention to be held August 7-10, 2022 in Sacramento, California. APG will be sponsoring and presenting at the Convention luncheon on Tuesday, August 8th. The NSRMCA is headquartered in Washington and represents some 1,700 fleet operators who contract with the United States Postal Service for the over-the-highway transportation of the U.S. mail.
APG will be presenting a practical, affordable, and proven alternative fuel solution for the NSRMCA members to convert their existing Class 8 trucks with APG’s V6000 Dual Fuel System. The V6000 provides the ability to realize meaningful net fuel savings through the substitution of natural gas for diesel, while significantly lowering diesel-related criteria pollutants and carbon footprint. APG has an industry-leading 500+ EPA approvals and multiple CARB Executive Orders for vehicular solutions.
In May 2022, APG announced that Sapphire Gas Solutions, an industry leader in mobile RNG, LNG, and CNG services across the U.S. realized a 25% to 30% net fuel cost savings while operating APG’s Dual Fueled 2015 Freightliner CC132 Coronado Sleeper demo truck with a Detroit Diesel 505HP diesel engine.
In September 2021, APG noted that their V6000, operating on a SCR/DEF diesel engine displacing 50% to 60% of diesel fuel consumption with domestically available renewable natural gas (“RNG”) from dairy manure could potentially eliminate between 500 to 610 metric tons of CO2 per year per vehicle and generate a significant negative Carbon Intensity Score (-104 to -145 gCO2e/mj). In addition, several EPA/CARB certified emission test labs have validated the following emission reductions when running APG’s vehicular Dual Fuel System and compressed natural gas compared to 100% diesel on model year 2010 engines and newer for which APG has EPA approval:
- NOx reduction of 30% to 50%
- Particulate Matter (PM) reduction of 40% to 70%
- Carbon Monoxide (CO) reduction of 80% to 99%
- Non-Methane Hydrocarbon reduction by 99%
Matt VanSteenwyk, APG’s Chairman commented, “With a cost-effective conversion price of approximately $10,000 per truck plus a nominal monthly cost of a leased natural gas tank, we strongly believe APG’s V6000 Dual Fuel System is the most affordable and effective alternative fuel solution for existing Class 8 trucks available today. The ability to provide potential net fuel savings in the 25% to 30% range based on current average fuel pricing provides a fleet operator with a significant competitive advantage in their market.”
Gregory Reed, NSRMCA Executive Director stated, “Rising fuel prices are at the top of our member’s priority list. With no near-term relief in sight, it is critical that we assist our membership with access to cost effective solutions to address this topic. NSRMCA will be devoting several sessions at this year’s National Convention on this topic and we are very pleased APG will be attending and educating our membership about the benefits of their V6000 Dual Fuel System.”
