Why Propane Autogas?

Propane autogas makes sense for many reasons. It has the lowest total cost of ownership of any alternative fuel. Plus, cost of maintenance is greatly reduced because propane autogas operates much cleaner than gasoline or diesel and doesn’t require costly diesel after-treatment items. Add in ROUSH CleanTech’s exclusive partnership with Ford, which results in a purpose-built engine and includes a full factory warranty, and your step into the world of alternative fuels is seamless.

Propane autogas vehicles offer:

  • Lowest total cost of ownership.
  • Substantial fuel and maintenance savings.
  • Quick return on investment.
  • Emissions-reducing technology.
  • Exceptional cold-weather startups.
  • Reduced noise pollution.
  • Abundant, domestically produced energy.
  • Funding and tax credit opportunities.
  • An advanced, clean transportation solution.

System Overview


Compliance

NHTSA, FMVSS, EPA. CARB. We take certifications seriously since they are absolutely crucial to meet both federal mandates and your internal emission directives. All of ROUSH CleanTech’s vehicles are emissions-compliant, meeting (and often exceeding) certifications by:

  • Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.
  • National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
  • California Air Resources Board.
  • Environmental Protection Agency.

A ROUSH CleanTech first! ROUSH CleanTech was the first company ever to receive CARB’s optional low NOx level certification in class 4-7 vehicles. Standard on both 6.8L and 7.3L, the 0.05 g/bhp-hr propane autogas engine is 75% cleaner than EPA’s most stringent federal standard.

And on the 6.8L engine, we achieved 0.02 g/bhp-hr —the first available propane autogas engine certified to CARB’s optional near-zero NOx level, and 90% cleaner than EPA’s most stringent federal standard
