Shelton, Conn.-based Hocon Gas continues to advocate for and operate propane autogas vehicles in its home state, acquiring one of the first dedicated-propane S2G vehicles by Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp and providing fueling support to school bus and other fleets.
Hocon works closely with Windsor, Conn.-based Cusson Automotive. Cusson converts a wide range of Ford and GM vehicles primarily to propane-gasoline bi-fuel operation using liquid injection equipment from Icom North America.
Propane autogas, notes Hocon autogas manager Tim Brown, “is the third largest fuel used in the world with over 24 million vehicles running” – only gasoline and diesel can claim more.
“The S2G is the most forward-looking vehicle platform that I’ve seen come out in ten years,” Hocon Gas president David Gable says in a Propane Education and Research Council video. His firm already has a second S2G on order.
Development of FCCC’s S2G with Powertrain Integration engine and CleanFuel USA fuel system was backed by PERC. The vehicle was announced at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis in 2012 (F&F, March 9, 2012) and entered full production last year.
