Adrian, Mich.—Venchurs Vehicle Systems, a Ford QVM for CNG conversions, will be joining Encana, one of the leading energy producers in North America, at their Natural Gas Fueling Solutions Experience in Shreveport, La. on April 12, 2012, where fleet buyers will have the opportunity to test a CNG Ford truck during the ride and drive portion of the event. VVS will also be exhibiting to promote the compressed natural gas fuel solution and to host a demo unit sign up.
“Encana has a long history of developing resources and promoting natural fuel solutions,” says Jeff Wyatt, CEO of Venchurs. “It’s an honor to work closely with them on this goal of expanding the compressed natural gas infrastructure in this country.”
VVS offers both Bi-Fuel and CNG dedicated conversions for Ford F-250/350 trucks as a QVM (qualified vehicle modifier). With unmatched technology and unparalleled customer support and service, Venchurs offers the ultimate solution for fleets wanting CNG light trucks. Because Venchurs is a QVM, the original Ford warranty stays intact, the conversions can be financed through Ford Credit and standard Ford Diagnostic Equipment can service the vehicles.
Compressed natural gas has been gaining momentum for a variety of reasons including lower fuel and maintenance costs, fewer emissions, a reduced dependency of foreign oil and a higher safety rating. The Bi-Fuel system, which allows for a seamless, “on-the-fly” switching of the fuel supply and offers a total fuel range of up to 650 miles, is a great solution for fleet managers.
One of the biggest concerns plaguing fleet owners when considering the switch to CNG is loss of performance. With the VVS system, the change in performance is minuscule, and, to demonstrate the performance capabilities, Venchurs has put together the largest fleet of demos available by any QVM for fleet managers. Buyers who would like to test a unit before making a commitment are welcome to sign up for a short term truck loan.
“We are leading the way in demo unit availability, and we think that’s very important,” says Terry Karges, VP of Sales and Marketing for VVS. “We’re confident that once fleet managers have tested our systems, they’ll place orders. We do, however, understand that converting to CNG is a big decision, and want buyers to have the reassurance of testing a unit before making a commitment.”
