Agility Fuel Systems, a developer and manufacturer of natural gas fuel systems for heavy-duty vehicles in North America, announced February 28 at the American Trucking Association’s Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) Exhibition in Nashville TN, the launch of their new state-of-the-art 2016 160 DGE behind-the-cab compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel system.
This 160 diesel gallon equivalent CNG fuel system from Agility delivers the most efficient package of any CNG heavy-duty vehicle system on the road today.
