1998 - Liquid Propane Injection - In 1998, Mogas in cooperation with BC Research Inc. and Digicon Engineering Inc. completed development on the EcoJet™ lean-burning, liquid propane injection system for a 260 HP Cummins C 8.3 Turbo-compressed engine for use in fleet service. The goals of the project were to produce an engine with a power curve as close as possible to the engine as when fuelled with conventional diesel fuel, with minimal output of pollutants, while optimizing driveability fuel efficiency and longevity...

1996 - Mobeta, Dragster Camaro - In 1996, Mogas was proud to be a sponsor of the 2nd Annual NGV Open/Ride and Drive at the Homestead Golf Course, Midway, Utah. There were nearly 100 participants in 1996 NGV tournament. Terry Keddington, race-car owner, exbited his Mobeta 1967 Chevrolet Camero, which is one of the only three national super-gas drag racers fueled by natural gas. Terry and Mobeta, which is fitted with a Mogas fuel system continue to attract the attention of many spectators, drivers and racing organizers...

1996 - Corel Great American Race - In 1993, Mogas built a natural gas fuel system for the 1932 Chrysler Ironside which under the rule of Sir Dick Nelson of Shriport Luisiana participates to the yearly Great American Races held. The 1996 Corel Great Race was a controlled-speed, endurance competition for vehicles built before 1943. The annual event brings together nearly 100 antique and classic vehicles from many nations to compete in this timed race for a variety of rich prizes. This competition is the world's richest old car race. This started in Tacoma, WA and was the most competitive ever. When it ended in Toronto after 14 days and 4100 miles of racing...

1995 - Police Car Program - In 1995, the Vancouver City Police Departments decided to seriouslly pursue a Natural Gas Vehicle Police Car Program. Mogas installed newly developed conversion kits on six Ford Crown Victoria police cars. These cars went through intensive handling and performance testing for six months and were found to be fit for patrol duty and 45% more economical on natural gas than they were on gasoline, a substantial cost savings for the Police Department...

1993 - The University of Alberta NGV Challenge - In 1993, Mogas Sales Inc. was proud to be a sponsor of the Natural Gas Vehicle Challenge. The NGV challenge is an international student design competition which challenges teams from North American universities to develop natural gas concept vehicles, which demonstrate the advantages of natural gas and explore ideas that optimize vehicles for natural gas. With assistance from different donors, they purchased a used 1991 GMC 2500 pickup truck, converted it to natural gas fuel, and entered the competition in Austin, Texas. Of the 30 teams involved, 24 made it to the competition and The University of Alberta placed tenth overall. Notable achievements were the longest driving range and best driveability as well as beating all other first-year entries and the beating first and second place teams from the previous year...

1987 - Nipawin School Buses - In 1987, Mogas converted 15 buses of the Nipawin School bus fleet to natural gas operation. The buses were converted by the staff at the bus garage under the technical direction of Mogas. A Mogas CNG conversion system was installed and six steel compressed natural gas cylinders were mounted under the rear carriage. The bi-fuel buses can operate on compressed natural gas (CNG) or gasoline at the turn of a switch. The Nipawin School Division now operates a fleet of 41 buses which transport 1280 students to nine schools. The buses travel around 6,200 km. per day to six towns and villages. The garage mechanics found that buses running on natural gas have experienced much longer life and tha the engines have very little carbon build up in the engines; substantiating the fact that natural gas is a cleaner-burning fuel than gasoline or diesel fuel...

1986 - Black Top Taxi-Cabs - In 1986, Mogas converted the Vancouver, BC Black Top Cab fleet, consisting of 133 vehicles, from propane to natural gas/gasoline bi-fuel operation. This provided an annual saving of approximately $ 1.2 million in fuel costs to the cab company. As well, due to the clean-burning natural gas, the lifespan of a taxi engine in this fleet is almost double, and maintenance is one third the cost...

1985 - First Passenger Ferries Powered by Natural Gas - In 1985, Mogas designed, produced and implemented a pilot injection natural gas/diesel fuel system technology for the conversion of a 350-Ton ferry, the M.V. Klatawa, the first passenger ferry in the world licensed to operate on natural gas. Today, this ferry and her sister, the M.V. Kuleet, engines have accumulated more than 600,000 hours of trouble free bi-fuel operation and are saving the Province of British Columbia an estimated $58,000 per year in fuel and maintenance....
