Peake’s Diesel Nat Gas Conversion Kit

Peake Fuel Solutions LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Chesapeake Energy Corporation, has announced the development of a diesel natural gas conversion kit that could cut heavy-duty truck operators fuel costs by 30 percent.

Diesel natural gas allows trucks to run on a mixture of diesel and up to 70 percent natural gas. When compressed natural gas or liquefied natural gas fuels are not available, trucks retain the ability to run on 100 percent diesel.

Long-term natural gas prices in the $4-6 per mcf range will translate into CNG and LNG prices of around $2.00 per diesel gallon equivalent, or about 50 percent lower than diesel prices, Peake says. Assuming a typical DNG blend, truckers would save about $0.20 per mile on their fuel costs. The return on investment for a DNG conversion kit is typically less than 18 month, Peake estimates.

Peake’s conversion kit has been approved by the EPA for a variety of engines. The certificate of conformity makes it the only dual-fuel natural gas retrofit certified by the EPA, allowing DNG kits to modify a variety of engines from model years 2010-12 that encompass power ratings from 400 to 600 horsepower.

Peake has begun accepting pre-orders for DNG kits, with widespread commercial availability expected in the first quarter of 2013.

  1. I wonder how the term “heavy-duty truck” is determined, that is, what constitutes a heavy duty truck?

    I’m assuming these would include tractor-trailers but if that’s the case, then you’re going to have to have natural gas pumps at every major truck stop on every highway In every state Just so that trucks with these types of engines can operate.

  2. We are interested in converting several light to medium duty diesel trucks to run on a mixture of CNG and Diesel. How do you control exhaust temp? Are installation instructions available? Are your units mechanical or electronic or both? What is delivery of kits and costs. Primarly interested in Ford and GMC conversions.
