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.
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
The ROUSH CleanTech fuel system is certified to 0.02 grams per brake horsepower-hour. This engine is 90 percent cleaner than the current EPA’s most stringent heavy-duty engine standard.
