For the CNG fuel option, organizations have the choice of selecting two fuel tank sizes in a 52 or a 60 gasoline equivalent option. Green Alternative Systems, the largest Ford Recognized Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) Alternative Fuel Program Installer in North America, installs the alternative fuel systems on all units. In fact the Starcraft Quest XL is the first and only Ford approved product built on an F-59 chassis. Electric powered and propane versions will also be available.
