Biodiesel plant commits to CNG trucks
The Cummins Westport ISX12 G engine provides as much as 80 hp of additional power and 450 pounds of additional torque compared to the peak rating of the 8.9-liter Cummins Westport ISL G engine, Douglas said.
Recently, the average cost of diesel fuel in the United States was just under $4 per gallon, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The average price of a diesel gallon equivalent of CNG in the United States is nearly $1 less.
“We’re excited to be adding these natural gas trucks and becoming among the first Kenworth customers to select the Cummins Westport ISX12 G engine,” Holton said.
