ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas fuel systems for Ford’s F-59 stripped chassis are distributed by Green Alternative Systems. To order, call 888.926.0620.


Operating Costs: Reduced

Propane autogas vehicles can potentially extend engine life and reduce 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 contaminant. 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 F-59 stripped chassis equipped with the ROUSH CleanTech propane fuel system provides the same great performance, horsepower, torque and towing capacity as the gasoline powered counterpart. In any altitude or extreme weather condition, you can depend on this fleet vehicle to provide reliability and performance.

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.

There is a 4-year / 100,000-mile warranty covering the installation provided by Green Alternative Systems.

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. To find a dealer, visit the Dealer Locator, or call 800.59.ROUSH.

Corporate Benefits

By incorporating propane autogas Ford F-59 stripped chassis into your fleet, you will be helping America achieve energy independence because this alternative fuel source is domestically produced. Converting your fleet to propane autogas will also help your company to turn a greater profit by saving you on the bottom line costs of fuel and maintenance. You will increase customer loyalty because your customers will appreciate you providing them with a more environmentally responsible way to receive your products or services.

Tax Incentives

A tax incentive is available for alternative fuel that is sold for use or used as a fuel to operate a motor vehicle. Retroactive to January 1, 2015, the credits are extended through December 31, 2016.


The tax credits consist of:

  • A $.50 per gallon excise tax credit for 2015.
  • A $.36 per gallon excise tax credit for 2016. The reduction for 2016 reflects an updated energy content calculation of excise tax.
  • A fueling infrastructure credit for up to 30 percent of installation costs, not to exceed $30,000.
