So what is the difference between hybrid and bi-fuel vehicles? Many people hear these words, but don’t really know what they mean. So what makes a bi-fuel vehicle unique? The main feature making unique is the fact that it only uses one motor, even though it is compatible to operate from two different fuel sources. These fuels are not mixed in these green cars; instead each one of them must be contained in its own fuel tank. The difference in a bi-fuel and a hybrid vehicle is that the hybrid has two separate motors, that each run off of a different kind of fuel. Consequently, a bi-fuel vehicle needs one less motor than a hybrid vehicle needs.
When it comes to bi-fuel pickup trucks and bi-fueled vans, Ford Motor Company has taken the lead. They forged a partnership with BAF Technologies in May of 2011, offering to consumers the bi-fuel F-250/350 pick-up trucks, along with their E-250/350 vans. BAF Technologies, Inc. is a subsidiary of Clean Energy Fuels Corp (CLNE) a leader in natural gas fueling stations. They were the very first company to achieve the designation as a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM). BAF created this proprietary bi-fuel conversion for these Ford vehicles. This process takes vans and pickup trucks that are “already manufactured,” and changes the entire fuel system to include Compressed Natural Gas use. OEM standards for quality are achieved through the process BAF uses.
