Each is built with a CNG-compatible engine—the General’s proven 6.0-liter Vortec V8—that has been specifically tailored to meet the unique requirements of compressed natural gas. This includes the addition of factory-installed hardened exhaust valves and intake/exhaust valve seats. Fuel-delivery and storage systems are then added using a dual-stage, single-sticker process, with two options being available: a three-tank system that provides a 200-mile range and full use of the cargo area and a four-tank setup that increases the van’s range to 300 miles through the addition of an extra tank located just inboard of the wheel well on the driver’s side of the cargo area.
