We are delighted to announce our continuing development of our Euro 6 dual fuel System which is now in production. The Quicksilver AFI System uses advanced technology to reduce fuel costs and emissions by up to 15% and 45% respectively.

This system has been designed specifically for the HGV transport sector and blends both fuels in precise quantities resulting in an optimised performance and lower emissions. With an installation time of only two days this system can be fitted to vehicles with very little down time and disruption to services.

With an installation cost of between £6000-£8000 per vehicle, the fuel savings of around 10-15% this produces means the system will pay for itself between 10-16 months subject to differing route criteria. LPG supplier Calor Gas Ltd has converted part of its own HGV fleet to this system and in doing so saved an average of £5,783pa per vehicle – significantly more than the original target of £4,000 per vehicle.

Our system has been independently tested by Millbrook and Horiba Mira with both research groups confirming emission savings of 5 tonnes per 100,000kms travelled and a 15% fuel reduction. This 5 tonnes Co2 emission saving will be increased significantly when Bio LPG is introduced in the spring of 2017.

If you would like to learn more about this system contact our team who will be happy to help.
