How to Order

Retrofit a Vehicle You Already Own

If you’ve bought a 2012 or newer Ford E-450 DRW cutaway van, you can convert your vehicle and begin saving immediately by installing a ROUSH CleanTech liquid propane fuel system in your 6.8-liter V10 configuration. These retrofit systems can be installed at any one of our conveniently located ROUSH CleanTech authorized installation centers.

The 41-gallon propane tank of the Ford E-450 DRW cutaway, which replaces the aft of rear axle gasoline tank, gives you plenty of range between refueling. The fuel tank’s location also means conversion doesn’t affect Ford body specs, so any upfitter body applications can be installed without modification. For ordering information and price, please call 800.59.ROUSH or contact one of our authorized dealers.

Benefits

Operating Costs: Reduced

Propane autogas vehicles are known for their extended engine life and reduced maintenance costs compared to gasoline vehicles. Propane’s higher octane rating and lower carbon and oil contamination rate not only helps you to save our ‘green’ environment, but saves you ‘green’ at the bank, too. Check out this Savings Calculator that lets you know how much you could save by switching to propane today.

Emissions: Reduced

As little as one gallon of spilled gasoline can quickly contaminate groundwater above drinking water health advisory levels. Propane, on the other hand, is not a groundwater contaminat. Fueling with nontoxic propane autogas means operating on a safer, cleaner fuel that produces:

  • 20 percent less nitrogen oxide
  • 60 percent less carbon monoxide
  • Up to 24 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions
  • Fewer particulate emissions

Performance: Identical

The Ford E-450 DRW cutaway van equipped with the ROUSH CleanTech propane fuel system provides the same great performance, horsepower, torque, and towing capacity as the gasoline powered counterpart.

Warranty: Identical

ROUSH CleanTech maintains the factory Ford 5-year / 60,000-mile limited powertrain warranty on vehicles equipped with the liquid propane autogas system. The ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas fuel system is covered by a limited 1-year / 12,000-mile warranty when installed on a truck that is no longer covered by the Ford factory warranty.

Serviceability: Identical

This vehicle can be easily serviced using any standard Ford diagnostic equipment. With a growing network of service centers around the country, and the ability to send technicians out to train mechanics in the service requirements of these vehicles, there is bound to be a service center near you.

System Overview

The components of your new 41-gallon propane tank are all designed to fit within the same mounting points of the existing aft-of-rear axle gasoline tank. This location, designed so that it doesn’t interfere with Ford body specs, means other upfitter installations are possible. The system can be broken down into a few primary assemblies:

Fuel Rail Assembly
  • Fuel Rail
  • Fuel Injectors
  • Injection Pressure / Temperature Sensor
Fuel Line Assembly
  • Fuel Lines
  • Flow Control Solenoid
Fuel Tank Assembly
  • Fuel Tank
  • Fuel Pump
