Chevy and GMC Now Offering LPG-Powered Cutaway Vans From the Factory

General Motors has announced today that it is partnering with Knapheide Manufacturing to offer Liquefied Petroleum Gas-powered Chevrolet and GMC cutaway vans direct from the factory, saving customers from having them retrofitted after purchase.

"LPG infrastructure has progressed rapidly, so it's easier for our customers to refuel in convenient locations across the country," said Brian Small, GM's general manager of Fleet and Commercial Operations. "When our customers order the LPG option, they're getting a sensible fuel alternative with the convenience of a one-stop ordering process."
While LPG conversions are available for a number of commercial vehicles, GM is the only manufacturer that currently provides the conversion before the vehicle is delivered to the customer. The conversion is available on the 6.0-liter Vortec V-8 engine only and will be performed at Knapheide's facility after leaving the factory. The LPG conversion systems will come from two suppliers, CleanFUEL USA and Bi-Phase Technologies, and will be available with 49- or 75-gallon fuel tanks respectively. The conversion is only offered on GM's 159-inch wheelbase cutaway vans.
