Checking in with Cummins-Westport’s CNG Powered ISX-G Engine

Cummins-Westport, an industry leader in vehicle engines powered by Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), is rolling out a 12 liter engine in 2013 targeted at the heavy duty truck market.

This engine, called the ISX-G, employs a number of neat technical innovations designed to help it use natural gas efficiently, letting truck operators enjoy the benefits of CNG as a cleaner burning and more affordable fuel.

Check out the short video below for an overview of the features of the ISX-G, I found it interesting and my knowledge of engines doesn’t extend past refilling my wiper fluid.
