The first 2016 Ford F-150 pickup truck to run on compressed natural gas, propane and gasoline rolled off the line in Kansas City, Mo., recently. It joins a CNG/propane-capable fleet that includes the F-Series Super Duty, Transit and Transit Connect vans and wagons. Ford has sold more than 60,000 vehicles prepped to run on natural gas and propane since 2009, “six times more” than other U.S. automakers combined. Its gaseous-fuel-prep package includes hardened engine valves, valve seats, pistons and piston rings. Gasoline runs through the truck’s existing fuel delivery system. When equipped with the package, the 5.0-liter V8 F-150 can go up to 750 miles on combined tanks of gasoline and CNG, depending on tank size.
Some F-150 pickups can use gasoline, compressed natural gas and propane, but not all at the same time of course.
