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 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

Performance: Identical

The Ford F-53 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.
