Building on the rugged, reliable design of Cummins diesel engines, the Cummins C Gas Plus engine is an 8.3 litre, six-cylinder Lean-Burn Spark-Ignited (LBSI) natural gas vehicle engine that delivers from 187 to 209 kW (250-280 hp) with ultra-low emissions. It provides excellent torque, high fuel efficiency and reliable, robust performance, with excellent ratings for both medium-duty and refuse collection truck and bus applications. The C Gas Plus is known for easier maintenance and longer service with extreme reliability and durability. Service intervals are similar to the base diesel engine.
