BAF Earns CARB Certification for 2012 CNG Ford Vans and Pickups

April 03, 2012

DALLAS – BAF, a wholly owned subsidiary of Clean Energy Fuels Corp., has received California Air Resources Board (CARB) executive orders (EO) for its CNG-powered 2012 Ford F-250 and F-350 pickups and E-250 and E-350 vans.

The CARB executive orders allow the vehicles to be sold and operated in California, as well as in 16 other states that follow CARB rules, according to BAF. The CNG-powered BAF E-250/350 vans — already in use by service providers such as AT&T and Super Shuttle — have been CARB-certified since 2007. The new CARB EO extends the certification to include the 2012 model year.

In addition to the F-Series 250/350 pickups and E-250/350 vans, BAF has CARB EOs for the 2012 F-450/550/650 utility body, the F-53/59 commercial chassis, the E-450 shuttle, and the Ford Transit Connect. Also for 2012, BAF has EPA certifications for all of these vehicles, as well as the bi-fuel CNG E-250/350 vans and F-250/350 pickups.

BAF is recognized as a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) for gaseous fuel and uses Ford-accredited QCM (Quality Calibrations Modifier) calibrations. The company's alternative fuel vehicle upfitting capabilities include aftermarket CNG conversions of Ford-manufactured vans, cutaway shuttles, taxis, pickups, and light-duty trucks. All vehicles converted by BAF are registered through Ford QFC (Quality Fleet Care) for all warranty and service work through Ford dealerships.
