EVS has been a leader in alternative fuel system design and conversion since 2006. As the winner of the prestigious GM Alt Fuels Van Program in 2010, we continue to offer excellent product design, conversion, warranty & tech support and customer service today. In addition, we have also invested in our own low pressure system design and have been manufacturer of record for all of our authorized kits, since 2018.
*We match all OEM warranties and can sell kits to authorized installers or handle complete conversions with our one-stop-shop model and many ship-through codes.
LAW ENFORCEMENT PROGRAM
Law enforcement agencies across the nation are taking control of their fleet fuel expenses by adopting alternative fuel solutions. In an effort to save departments money and to help promote green and sustainable communities, Eco Vehicle Systems, the nations most experienced conversion experts offer LEO/first responder rated vehicles for Fords, Dodge and GM vehicles.
EVS' bi-fuel, alternative fuel systems have been designed and purpose built for law enforcement vehicles. These advanced, next generation systems have been rigorously tested by sheriff and police departments throughout the U.S. to ensure unparalleled safety and performance under extreme use conditions. They are EPA certified, NFPA 52/58 Compliant and DOT approved. This system also offers Eco’s Pursuit Optimization Protocol (POP) which is a zero power loss program that kicks in during periods of high performance demand ensuring optimal vehicle performance!
SCHOOL BUS PROGRAM
The Eco Vehicle Systems school bus repower solution is a drop-in replacement propane powertrain to replace the International VT365 or DT-466 diesel engine. This is not a conversion system; it is a completely new powertrain replacement using a dedicated propane engine designed and purpose built for propane.
ADVANTAGE: High Performance + Low Cost of Ownership
The new 8.0 Liter V8 has the hardened components, high compression, and specifically designed engine management system to take advantage of the high octane rating of propane. The result is a smoother running, higher- performing, extremely low emissions engine that saves on every gallon consumed and doesn’t have costly EGR, D.E.F., and particulate filter issues.
ADVANTAGE: Clean Air for Students
As careful as school districts have become to protect children from harmful diesel emissions with no-idle zones and other precautions, diesels still produce emissions when starting or running in front of the school where the children and employees walk. Our propane buses don’t stink, and have virtually zero particulate pollutants. Source = Propane.com
The re-power process involves removal of the old powertrain from the fan and all the engine accessories to
the drive shaft.
The transmission is then completely rebuilt and re-geared to match the power curve of the propane V8 and a new Allison Transmission approved calibration is loaded into the transmission control computer.
The new engine and accessories are mated to the transmission and are installed with new mounts.
New exhaust and EPA certified catalytic converters replace the old diesel components.
A new one-piece integration wiring harness is installed to seamlessly adapt the new powertrain to the
chassis. Integration of the new engine, transmission, chassis, and instrument cluster is plug-and-play.
The diesel fuel tank is removed and replaced with a 60-gallon propane tank.
ADVANTAGE: Ease of Maintenance
Maintenance and repair become as simple as that of a gasoline engine; in fact, the engine is based on the tried-and-true General Motors Big Block V8, making maintenance and repair such as spark plugs effectively child’s play to the experienced technician.
A SCHOOL DISTRICT FLEET PRIMER to PROPANE REPOWERED SCHOOL BUSSES
The VW fund is called Environmental Mitigation Trust (EMT) and is part of the $14.7 billion dollar settlement in 2016. The settlement was a result of actions by VW circumventing emissions testing protocol and thus being accused of cheating emissions standards. These EMT funds are specifically dedicated to reducing diesel emissions. Because the circumvention measures (emissions cheating) focused on NOx emissions produced when the engine burned diesel fuel, the first criteria states programs are required to address is NOx emissions. Other US EPA criteria pollutants aka greenhouse gases or GHG are secondary.
