Momentum Fuel Technologies Adds 175 DGE Fuel System
Momentum Fuel Technologies, a division of Rush Enterprises, announced it is adding a 175 DGE back-of-cab system in its CNG fuel system options for Class 6 to 8 trucks, the largest Momentum system to date. The company expects the system, which is currently in production, will be ready for delivery this spring.
“The larger-capacity tank gives drivers even more time between fill-ups,” said Mike Zimmerman, Momentum’s general manager. “This is a major benefit for all drivers but especially for over-the-road carriers putting in extensive miles.”
Momentum says the system mounts between factory cab extenders with neck-mounted cylinders for greater durability. The system’s fuel management module houses the electronics, fuel filter and fuel-fill receptacles and works in conjunction with the Rush Truck Centers’ telematics platform.
All Momentum products, including the 175 DGE back-of-cab system, feature a fuel pressure regulator with a high-capacity filter manufactured by Parker, allowing the system to operate from 3,600 PSI when full to a minimum of 230 PSI. The pressure regulator is designed to reduce leak points and weight, and the high-capacity filter is larger to be serviced less frequently.
