Alliance AutoGas specialists Kevin Oglesby and Stacey Snyder upfitted the vehicle in one hour, 21 minutes in a live demonstration at the show. The specialists’ timing beat an F-150 conversion record set at last year’s show. That conversion was completed in one hour, 32 minutes, according to Alliance AutoGas.
“The live conversion was not being done this year for speed or to break any records, only to show consistency and ease of install on any vehicle,” says Ed Hoffman, president of Blossman Services Inc.
Show attendees were encouraged to watch the conversion and ask the specialists questions during the process, Snyder says.
“We worked methodically and not particularly fast,” he says. “It is a testament to how far we have come with the Alliance conversion kits. Any conversion specialist can do it in the same time Kevin and I did.”
The company’s plug-and-play system can be installed on new or in-service vehicles in half the time of other solutions, Alliance AutoGas says. The system is designed to require no fabrication, and every bracket, nut and bolt is included for each vehicle-specific system.
