Cummins Westport ISL G
The Cummins Westport ISL G is an 8.9-litre, six-cylinder inline natural gas engine for shuttle and school bus, urban transit, vocational and medium and heavy-duty truck and tractor applications. It was introduced in late 2007 and replaced the Cummins Westport C Gas Plus and Cummins Westport L Gas Plus in 2008. The ISL G is based on the diesel-fueled Cummins ISL and shares 80 percent of its heavy duty components with its diesel counterpart.
The ISL G uses a three-way catalyst which works by introducing a catalyst to convert the nitrogen oxides to nitrogen gas and oxygen gas, carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbons to carbon dioxide and water. The engine also features cooled exhuast gas recirculation (EGR), and stoichiometric combustion. The ISL G meets the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) 2010 and 2013 emissions regulations. The European ISL G meets Euro 5 regulations.
In 2016, Cummins Westport introduced the ISL G "Near Zero" (NZ). This version of the engine, as the name implies, achieves Near Zero NOx Emissions as defined by the Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board. The ISL G NZ, as well as its Euro 6 counterpart, have a closed crankcase ventilation (CCV) system and upgraded electronic controls to manage On-Board Diagnostics. The ISL G and its 'Near Zero' counterpart were replaced by the L9N in 2018.
