Polaris Defense delivers military vehicles with electronic direct fuel, other innovations

MINNEAPOLIS, 27 Sept. 2007. Polaris Industries Inc. has completed the first production of--and received orders from the U.S. Department of Defense for--its newest military vehicle, the MV800 4X4 ATV. The MV800 is Polaris' first military machine to feature the Patriot Engine with Electronic Direct Fuel Injection. The 760cc, 40hp spark ignition engine is powered by JP8, the U.S. military's standard fuel.

The new engine, developed in partnership with Australia-based Orbital Corp., employs patented technology that allows the engine to significantly surpass traditional, diesel compression engines in this size with almost twice the horsepower. In addition to running on JP8, the Patriot Engine can operate on emergency fuels including gasoline, JP5, and highway diesel.
