CleanFuel USA has received Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) certification for the S2G chassis from Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. The engine and fuel system can now be purchased and used in all 50 states and Canada for vehicles weighing up to 33,000 pounds.

The chassis, which includes an eight-liter engine built by Powertrain Integration from a General Motors long block and a liquid propane injection system manufactured by CleanFuel, will be in full production by early September, according to a press release. Initial chassis platforms include a propane bobtail delivery vehicle and a propane autogas school bus.

In addition, the S2G has a carbon monoxide rating of 60 percent below and a nitrogen oxide rating of 20 percent below EPA set standards for heavy-duty vehicles.
