Rush Enterprises Introduces Line of CNG Fuel Systems
Momentum Fuel Technologies, a new division of Rush Enterprises, has introduced a complete CNG fuel system solution for Class 6 to 8 trucks, offering support from design and manufacturing, to sales and ongoing service throughout the product life cycle.
Company leaders and researchers spent more than 5,200 hours talking to customers about their needs, and then applied those findings to the design, engineering and manufacture of this solution. Customers expressed interest in a number of areas, including driver confidence, system weight, critical safety features, limiting downtime and a complete support network.
Momentum Fuel Technologies invested millions of dollars in its 109,000 sq-ft CNG-dedicated facility in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, with state-of-the art machining equipment. All major components will be manufactured in house.
The company plans to offer both side-mount and back-of-cab mount systems. Side-mount systems include a 40 or 45 DGE tank configuration. The back-of-cab mount system we initially include a 110 DGE tank. We expect to offer another back-of-cab mount system, with 150 DGE in fall 2015.
Momentum Fuel Technologies’ authorized installer, Custom Vehicle Solutions (CVS), performs hundreds of natural gas system installations annually on a broad range of market applications.
