Westport Innovations Ford F150 dedicated liquid propane systemWestport Innovations Inc., a natural gas engine technology company, will offer a dedicated liquid propane system for 2016 Ford 5.0-liter F-150 trucks. Westport also offers a compressed natural gas (CNG) package for 2016 F-150 trucks. Both options are part of the Westport WiNG power system and will likely be certified to Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board standards.

While most propane autogas offerings take up truck bed space, Westport says its tank packages will be located under the body to boost fleet productivity.

The liquid propane system includes a standard 24-gallon fuel tank or an optional 16-gallon tank and simplified maintenance of a replaceable inline filter. The fuel pump has a 150,000-mile life expectancy. No additional scanning tools are required for diagnostic services. The truck also features consistent volumetric efficiency, resulting in superior power and emissions compared to existing vapor propane systems.
