New Propane Tank Option for Ford F-450 / F-550 to be Unveiled at NPGA Southeastern Propane Expo
ROUSH CleanTech’s new single-saddle configuration designed for propane industry fleets
LIVONIA, MICH. (April 19, 2016) — ROUSH CleanTech will reveal its newest propane autogas tank option at this weekend’s NPGA Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo in Nashville. The 35-usable gallon, single-saddle propane autogas tank for the Ford F-450 / F-550 is passenger-side mounted allowing it the versatility to fit in a variety of body applications.
“The innovative propane autogas fuel tank configuration for these heavier-duty Ford trucks provides the propane industry with another option for their fleets,” said Todd Mouw, vice president of sales and marketing. “Companies can fuel all of their Class 4-7 work trucks and bobtails with the same product they sell.”
Propane suppliers and other companies that use 84-inch cab-to-axle fleet vehicles no longer need to order a size up to accommodate a propane tank. The new tank will fit 84-inch, 120-inch and 180-inch CAs. This shorter wheelbase truck is the primary choice for propane marketers for better maneuverability in neighborhoods.
Applications for the propane autogas-fueled F-450 / F-550 trucks with the new tank design include box trucks, flat beds, service trucks, mini-bobtails, crane trucks and cylinder delivery trucks. These ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas vehicles maintain the same horsepower, torque and towing capacity as their Ford gasoline-fueled counterparts.
ROUSH CleanTech will have a demo truck on display at the NPGA expo’s Autogas Pavilion, booth No. T-219. Orders are now being taken.
