Benefits

Driving Range: Standard or Extended

ROUSH CleanTech offers two fuel tank options unique to the Ford E-350. The standard 25-gallon mid-ship fuel tank, which replaces the existing gasoline tank, gives your drivers plenty of range between refueling without sacrificing passenger capacity.

Or, if you have a Ford E-350 wagon or extended wagon, you can choose the extended range tank with 46 usable gallons. This tank replaces the last row of seats in the van, giving drivers an estimated 450 miles or more between fill-ups.

Operating Costs: Reduced

These Ford vehicles equipped with the ROUSH CleanTech propane fuel system offer a significant return on investment. Not only is propane 30 to 40 percent cheaper per gallon than gasoline, the clean-burning, domestic fuel these innovative vehicles utilize will provide extended service life and reduced maintenance costs. This means big bottom line savings for Ford E-350 owners like you. See the Savings Calculator.

Emissions: Reduced

A byproduct of natural gas processing and petroleum refining, propane is an example of a bridge fuel that emits fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline, diesel, and electricity in certain end-use applications. Drive your propane autogas Ford E-350 in confidence knowing that you are driving the most attractive option in reducing your carbon footprint. By driving a propane autogas powered Ford E-350 van, you are producing:

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

Performance: Identical

Not only does the Ford E-350 equipped with the ROUSH CleanTech propane fuel system provide exceptional comfort and ease of ownership, it maintains the same outstanding horsepower, torque and towing capacity as any other gasoline-powered Ford E-350 with a 5.4-liter V8 engine: 255 horsepower and 350 pounds of torque. This vehicle was designed and tested to perform in any altitude and extreme weather condition, so you can depend on a Ford E-350 propane autogas van to start and operate consistently and reliably. You don’t have to sacrifice performance in order to save money and go green.

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 van that is no longer covered by the Ford factory warranty.

Serviceability: Identical

Propane autogas vehicles differ greatly from gasoline and diesel vehicles when it comes to maintenance. Since propane burns hotter and cleaner than gasoline or diesel, you get increased service life and reduced maintenance for your vehicle. The same experts who have developed Ford powertrain and calibration systems are installing ROUSH CleanTech propane injection systems, which means these vans can be serviced using standard Ford diagnostic equipment. To keep your propane-autogas-powered Ford E-350 running its best overall, visit any conveniently located Ford service center near you for a periodic inspection of the tank and its attendant plumbing and pressure regulators that should be part of any routine maintenance process. Visit the Dealer Locator to locate a service center near you, or call .

Corporate Stewardship

ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas fuel systems are one of the few that meet the stringent “SULEV” emissions standards set by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Your customers will thank you for providing them with a more environmentally responsible option to deliver their goods or transport their passengers. The use of propane autogas in your fleet vehicles will earn your company a positive reputation because 90 percent of propane used in the U.S. is produced domestically. Therefore, by ‘greening’ your fleet, you’re not only cleaning up the environment, but taking a step toward reducing our country’s foreign dependence on oil, too.

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.

System Overview

Converting your vehicle to this tried and tested low-emissions fuel is relatively simple for the engineers at ROUSH CleanTech. While a lot of planning and development goes 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 frame. 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
  • Fuel Level Sensor
Recalibration of Ford Powertrain Control System
  • Calibration
  • Wiring Harness
