We have been getting a lot of CNG training at work lately. I am a Heavy Equipment mechanic for the State. Diesel power trucks are going to be a thing of the past for large fleets here in So. Cal. CARB has stated that Diesel emissions are public enemy #1 in California. Ford is getting ahead in the game for the medium duty truck market by offering the V10. Should be interesting what the future holds for the Diesel engine. CNG powered trucks have a long way to go too. We have CNG powered street sweepers that cant make an 8 hour shift without refueling at least twice a day.
Ford had the V10 and I think the 5.4 setup for propane/gasoline or CNG/gasoline back in the 2000-2002 timeframe, I think. My service manual for my '01 has all the procedures and specs on them. "Bi-fuel" they're called.
I suspect the V10 will be continuing for a long time...
