The 488LPI engine uses Agility’s patented liquid propane injection (LPI®) technology and is assembled in Agility’s Salisbury, North Carolina plant on a base General Motors V-8 engine long block, with proprietary Agility dress parts, propane injection system and controls.  The 488LPI engine is used in school bus, propane bobtail and medium-duty truck applications.

A version of the 488LPI engine is available on the Thomas Built Buses Saf-T-Liner® C2 Propane school bus.
