This modification allows the use of CNG or compressed natural gas as an alternate fuel choice.

This engine has special valve and hardened valve seats. However, using the 2014 GMC Sierra 3500HD on CNG means decrease in power output. The second engine variant is a massive 6.6-liter V-8 Duramax engine. This engine is turbocharged and has an impressive torque rating. This engine is capable of running on biodiesel to conserve the environment. No modifications are required to run the Duramax diesel on bio-fuel.
