Go Natural Converts an F150 to Bi-Fuel CNG in Just 2 Hours and 15 Minutes
Go Natural CNG manufactures the least invasive, easiest and quickest to install CNG conversion kits on the market. Lucas Kjar, the President of Go Natural, knew that this statement was true. The challenge was developing a way to convince potential customers. That's when he came up with the idea of converting a vehicle in front of an audience.
During the recent Green Fleet Conference & Expo in Schaumburg, IL, Go Natural conducted a live demonstration in front of approximately 850 attendees. Typical vehicle conversions with other kits take three or four days to complete. However, with a Go Natural conversion kit and two technicians working together, a 2010 5.4L F150 XLT pick-up truck was converted to run on CNG and gasoline (bi-fuel) in just under 2 hours and 15 minutes. The use of an ultra-lightweight carbon composite tank from Quantum Technologies contributed to the record breaking speed of this conversion. Show management and attendees commented that this demonstration was the highlight of the show that is billed as the largest gathering of fleet professionals that are interested in improving efficiencies.
For over 20 years the Go Natural team had installed conversion kits that were manufactured by all the largest volume suppliers. When it came time to make their own kits, all of this hands-on experience really paid off. Go Natural conversion kits are faster to install for four primary reasons:
1. Bi-Fuel Rails and Cups - Instead of drilling holes into the factory intake for the CNG injectors, Go Natural developed a patented fuel rail and dual injector cup system that installs into the factory injector ports.
2. Plug-and-Play Wiring Harness - Instead of splicing up to 35 wires, Go Natural developed a CNG wiring harness that simply snaps into the factory wiring harness.
3. CNG Hoses – Instead of bending, cutting, flaring and installing fittings on stainless steel lines, Go Natural manufactures and utilizes CSA certified CNG hoses.
4. Fuel Interface Module (FIM) – Instead of mounting and plumbing the check valve, CNG filter, ¼ turn valve, pressure gauge, transducer and other components along the frame rail, Go Natural combines all of these components in one patented and easy to mount FIM unit. The design also reduces potential leak points by more than 50%.
