Niyato develops tri-fuel system

Can't make up your mind when it comes to which alternative fuel – LPG or CNG – to choose? Now you can have the best of both worlds, or actually three – with Niyato Industries' new tri-fuel system you can have a Ford pick-up truck running on either gaseous fuel or petrol.

The tri-fuel conversion has been showcased on a 4x4 Ford F-350, but according to Niyato, any Ford F-250 and F-350 featuring the 6,2-litre engine is applicable. Or rather will be as soon as the company receives EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and CARB (California Air Resources Board) certifications to start marketing the technology. Procedures are currently underway.

The problem is, when a pick-up truck is fitted with two alternative fuel systems, much bed space is taken up by additional CNG and LPG tanks. So on the one hand you get a vehicle that runs half the price, but whose commercial value is much depreciated because there's hardly anywhere to store the cargo the car was built to carry. The tri-fuel pick-up is currently undergoing tests – we'll keep you up to date as soon as more details come along.

Our goal is not remaking the wheel, but making it roll more smoothly.
