Adrian, MI, Oct. 22, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Venchurs Vehicle Systems, a CNG Converter for Ford, will join its sister-company, VWerks, at the 2012 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) Show in Las Vegas Oct. 29-Nov. 2. Making the trek from Michigan to Las Vegas is a Venchurs' converted 2012 Bi-Fuel F-350 which will tow one of VWerks' booth vehicles, a custom upfitted Jeep Wrangler. The Bi-Fuel Ford will also be a featured display vehicle at the SEMA Show.
The road trip, which will cover nearly 2,000 miles over the course of four days, will address two of the biggest concerns surrounding compressed natural gas powered vehicles--infrastructure and loss of power. Venchurs will show that with a little extra planning and patience, it is completely possible to drive across the country on CNG, a fuel that in many places, costs half as much as regular gasoline. Additionally, Venchurs wants to demonstrate that towing capabilities aren't reduced when driving on CNG.
On the trip from Detroit to Las Vegas, Venchurs will be stopping at dealerships and CNG stations across the country, showing off its Ford conversions and the custom built Jeep. Social media will play an instrumental role on the road trip as daily updates will be posted to Venchurs' various social media channels. Fans and followers will be engaged through related contests and promotions--all information will be posted on the Facebook and Twitter pages of Venchurs CNG, as well as the Facebook and Twitter pages of VWerks.
Venchurs offers both CNG dedicated and bi-fuel conversions of Ford light trucks as a QVM (Qualified Vehicle Modifier) for Ford Motor Company. Venchurs also has a supplementary upfit facility in Adrian, Michigan, and is the only converter able to further customize these trucks to meet the needs of the customer. From suspension modifications to off-road gear and work truck accessories, Venchurs is a one-stop shop for all company fleet needs.
Companies that are interested in adding CNG Ford F-250s or F-350s to their fleets are invited to apply for Venchurs' short term loaner program, where they can put the converted trucks to the test.
