Icom JTGhp takes the matter a step further
The new version of the system (in itself previously known), already certified by EPA (the US Environmental Protection Agency), will be available in two basic variants – as dedicated monofuel and bi-fuel. Which doesn't make that much of a difference, since they can both make do without petrol. Yes, because injecting non-vapourised LPG autogas directly into the combustion chambers of a petrol engine means you don't have to start the motor on petrol and warm it up before swithing over to the greener, cleaner and cheaper fuel. But you know that, don't you?
What you may not now, but are about to find out, is that the latest incarnation of JTGhp has been designed specifically for a number of Ford and Lincoln 2015, 2016 and 2017 MY applications featuring the popular 3,5-litre EcoBoost engine, including Ford Police Interceptor Utility, Police Interceptor Sedan, Explorers, F-150, Taurus, Flex, Edge and Expedition, as well as Lincoln's MKT, MKS, MKZ, Navigator, and Livery Services. Hopefully they will be followed by more platforms soon.
The extremely low emissions achieved on the Ford Direct Injection Ecoboost 3.5 engines utilising the Icom JTGhp® system are a game-changer. 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 utilised in either the bi-fuel or monofuel versions. Gasoline is only a backup fuel if utilising the bi-fuel version.
