Diesel 2 Gas, Inc. (D2G), Fitzgerald Glider Kits and Agility Fuel Systems have teamed to build the first Freightliner Cascadia Trucks to run on dual-fuel, which will be deployed by Foodliner. These vehicles are enabled to run on up to 60% CNG and 40% diesel with the D2G DualFlex+ system and equipped with Agility CNG tanks. Foodliner will operate the five sleeper cab trucks providing a significant carbon footprint reduction to meet the goals of its customers.
The Cascadia aerodynamic design, together with the fuel efficiency of the Detroit Diesel Series 60 engine, should result in the best mileage per gallon, for 500HP trucks, ever to be released on U.S. roads. The 60% gas substitution will result in one of the lowest fuel cost trucks in America while maintaining all of the original diesel performance.
Moreover, the five Cascadia’s also are equipped with D2G’s integrated electronic cruise control which differentiates them from any other dual fuel trucks.
“We have launched a new class 8 truck product built from a new aerodynamic truck chassis, with the industry’s leading engine. By incorporating the best CNG fuel storage system and the most proven dual-fuel system, we have built a truck that delivers everything our customer Foodliner demands for saving fuel cost, and it furthers Cargill’s mandate to lower its carbon footprint,” said Elio Muller, CEO Diesel 2 Gas Inc.
