The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has given its certification to Landi Renzo USA to sell its dedicated compressed natural gas engine in Ford pickups.

The order authorizes Landi Renzo to install its CNG system in 2014 model year Ford F-450, F-550, and F-650 vehicles with the Ford 6.8L engine.

Following a previous announcement of EPA bi-fuel certification for the 2014 model year Ford F-250 and F-350, the company’s U.S. certifications now cover Ford medium-heavy duty trucks with 6.2L and 6.8L engines. 

“We’re excited with the timing of receipt for these certifications,” said Andrea Landi, president of Landi Renzo USA. “Landi is ahead of schedule in obtaining CARB and EPA certifications for 2014MY Ford vehicles - a situation that permits for us to serve the industry in a timely manner, avoiding delays and inefficiencies.”
