Operating Costs: Reduced
Switching to propane autogas not only benefits the environment, it also improves fleet operators’ bottom line. Fleet managers are discovering they can lower their fuel costs by 30 to 40 percent compared to gasoline, with less maintenance costs over time, by switching to propane autogas. Visit the Savings Calculator to see how much money you can save.
Propane autogas burns far cleaner than gasoline, with less harmful emissions:
- Up to 20 percent less nitrogen oxide
- Up to 60 percent less carbon monoxide
- Up to 24 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions
- Fewer particulate emissions

A Ford F-250 equipped with the ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas fuel system delivers the same horsepower, torque, and towing capacity of a gasoline-powered Ford F-250 with a 6.2-liter V8 engine: 385 horsepower and 405 pounds-feet of torque. Whether you are in extreme cold or extreme heat, high or low altitude, or any inclement weather condition, your propane autogas truck will start and operate consistently and reliably.
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.
The ROUSH CleanTech liquid propane autogas fuel system can be serviced using standard Ford diagnostic equipment, and service centers are being set up all around the country. Visit the Dealer Locator to locate a service center near you, or call 800.59.ROUSH.
“Greening” Your Fleet
A number of government agencies and private companies have committed to sustainable strategies to reduce their emissions and carbon footprint. Fueling with propane autogas allows your company to have a measurable positive impact on the environment, have corporate stewardship, and earn customer loyalty in the process. And with 90 percent of U.S. propane supplies produced here, you’ll be doing your part to help reduce our country’s dependence on imported oil.
With thousands of propane refueling stations across the United States, refueling isn’t an issue. The U.S. Department of Energy maintains a database of propane fueling stations here. Or you may install on-site fueling at little or no cost, with federal tax incentives in place to help offset any costs. If you’re interested in obtaining your own refueling infrastructure, please call 800.59.ROUSH or contact us here.
Federal and state government incentives can help transition away from conventional fuels and encourage the switch to clean burning alternatives. Incentives include tax credits on fuel and partial reimbursement for fueling infrastructure. To find out your specific state and federal tax incentives for your location, click here.
Switching to an alternative fuel doesn’t have to mean complexity. While a lot of engineering and development go into the design of the system, the components are all designed to fit within the same mounting points of the gasoline system found on the original vehicle. The system can be broken down into a few primary assemblies:
Special Note about Cylinder Heads:
Ford has developed an alternative fuel prep engine package for the Ford F-250 and F-350 vehicles. Hardened valve seats can be added at time of vehicle order to the 6.2L V8 engine.

The under-bed fuel system is not available on chassis cab configurations.
The propane autogas under-bed fuel system modifies the Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) available with the under-bed propane autogas fuel system. The limit for this vehicle and fuel system is 14,000 pounds. This means that the total weight, which includes curb weight, passengers, payload and trailer, cannot exceed 14,000 pounds. For example, the highest curb weight on an F-250 / F-350 is 7,457 pounds. If you assume 200 pounds for passengers, you still have 6,700 pounds of total payload and trailer weight available.
