COSTA MESA, Calif. — Agility Fuel Solutions, a clean fuel solutions provider for medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, announced today that it has received California Air Resources Board (CARB) certifications for its first natural gas-powered engine.

The Agility 366NGTM, a General Motors 6.0L engine with an Agility natural gas fuel system, was certified to meet the CARB Optional Low NOx Emissions Standards and Greenhouse Gas Emissions Standards. Agility also received CARB Heavy-Duty On-Board Diagnostics (HD-OBD) certification, with full compliance.

The certified engine is now suited for school bus, walk-in van, cutaway chassis, cabover, terminal tractor, and medium-duty work truck applications in all 50 states, company officials said. It is available to vehicle OEMs as a stand-alone engine, or as a fuel system only. The certified engine also can be combined with Agility’s compressed natural gas storage solutions, which result in a complete end-to-end natural gas solution for Class 4-6 medium-duty vehicles.

“This certification demonstrates Agility’s capabilities to meet newer, more stringent engine certification requirements, including HD-OBD,” said Brad Garner, Agility’s president of powertrain systems. “In addition, because this engine is certified to the Optional Low NOx standard, fleets using this engine will qualify for a higher level of grant funding and rebates.”
