Irvine, Calif. (ots-PRNewswire) -

wholly owned subsidiary of IMPCO Technologies, Inc., (Nasdaq: IMCO),
today announced that it has developed a natural gas fuel system for
the first General Motors (GM) Chevrolet Zafira produced at the GM
Thailand Assembly Center in Thailand's Rayong Province.  The Zafira
MPV (or compact van) is powered with environmentally clean compressed

Recently GM Thailand announced that it signed a letter of intent
with the Petroleum Authority of Thailand and the Ministry of Science,
Technology and Environment, for a pilot study to verify the
commercial production of Thailand-produced Zafiras.  GM said Thailand
was the natural choice for the pilot study under GM's Global
Alternative Fuel Project because of its abundant resources of natural
gas, as published in The Wall Street Journal Interactive Edition,
March 28, 2001.
QUANTUM is a world leader in the development of hydrogen,
compressed natural gas (CNG) and propane (LPG) handling and advanced
gaseous storage system technologies for manufacturers of fuel cell
and internal combustion engines.
