Backed by research and development from the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), the 2Fuels dual fuel system technology allows producers to bring diesel engines into compliance with ever-increasing emissions standards without purchasing new equipment. This innovative dual fuel system offers ag producers the opportunity to use propane in existing diesel engines to provide additional power, savings and emissions compliancy.

“Engines that run on clean, American-made propane produce fewer emissions and meet Tier 4 standards, yet PERC recognizes that not all operations are ready to replace their current diesel engines,” says Mike Newland, director of agriculture business development at PERC. “The dual fuel system is an effective way for farmers to utilize propane on their farms for fuel savings, lower emissions and energy independence, all while continuing to use the equipment they already own.”

Manufactured by 2Fuel Technologies, headquartered in San Antonio, 2Fuel systems are designed to convert conventional diesel engines to operate on a blend of both propane and diesel. 2Fuel Technologies specializes in the development of these systems and is the first to produce a system that is CARB-certified, has achieved “OEM” EPA certification, and is the only dual fuel system manufacturer commercialized as a Tier 1 supplier.

The dual fuel system is an especially effective solution for producers in California needing to meet strict CARB regulations, as well as producers from all over the country who would like to bring Tier 2 and Tier 3 diesel engines into compliance, without purchasing a new engine.

Producers purchasing dual fuel systems can also qualify for the Propane Farm Incentive Program for additional savings of up to $3,000. More information about this program is available at www.propane.com/farmincentive.
