Furthermore, the company expects to obtain EPA approval for other diesel engine models to address the anticipated increasing demand from trucking fleets that operate with other diesel engine models. Industry sources estimate the total number of heavy-duty diesel trucks in the USA exceeds eight million and the large majority of these trucks could benefit from Omnitek’s patented technology.
“By converting these diesel engines to operate on natural gas during a routine engine overhaul, truck operators can realize a significant return on investment, with much lower fuel costs and cleaner combustion,” added Funk. He also emphasized the cost benefits of conversions versus new engine replacement.
