Engine protection system available on all Mitsubishi Fuso Canter Trucks

According to Mitsubishi Fuso Truck of America Inc., a new engine protection system, developed at the request of its fleet customers, is now standard on all 2015 models and available as a no-cost upgrade on all 2012–2014 model-year Canter FE and FG Series work trucks.

The new EPS will shut down the engine in the event of critically low oil pressure and regulate fuel flow to reduce engine heating upon sensing elevated coolant temperature. This system acts as an automatic back-up in the event that the driver fails to respond if the instrument cluster indicates low engine oil pressure or rising coolant temperature.

According to Leighton Good, MFTA’s manager, product and applications, “New 2015 model Canters will come from the factory with the EPS installed. But now that we have this set of protections available, we want all of our FUSO Canter owners to take advantage of the benefits. So we will also be installing the EPS on all of the Canters in inventory at our ports-of-entry before they’re shipped to our dealer network, and we’ll retrofit this system for FUSO owners who request it from a local authorized Fuso dealer. This is a software upgrade that takes advantage of the sensors already installed on the truck. It can be performed easily during a normal maintenance visit and it requires no hardware changes.”
