Diesel 2 Gas (D2G) has introduced a new electronically integrated cruise control that allows a truck’s OEM engine cruise control to operate normally in dual fuel mode.
The company said there are no additional controls, switches or mechanical actuators needed under the pedal. It went on to say that this is the first dual fuel conversion system to electronically integrate the cruise control with no parallel hardware.
The new cruise control is a standard feature on the D2G dual fuel system.
“This is yet another industry leading feature for dual fuel diesel engine conversions deployed by D2G. Our integrated cruise control feature leaps us 20 years ahead of other products,” Elio Muller, CEO and founder of D2G.
According to D2G, its engine system for Class 8 truck engines regularly achieves 60% or more gas displacement of diesel, a history of performance with no harm to engines, achievement of EPA emission requirements without a particulate trap on the exhaust, and no degradation in horsepower, torque or load response as compared to 100% diesel.
The cruise control system was tested and first deployed on the Detroit Diesel Series 60 engine truck owned and operated by Bestway Express Inc. in Vincennes, Indiana.
