Is a Renaissance Coming for Propane Autogas Vehicles?
Next-Gen Transportation News
ROUSH CleanTech, one of the enterprises created by motorsports legend Jack Roush, is an OEM-approved supplier of alternative-fuel vehicle products based in Livonia, Mich. Since 2006, the company has developed dedicated liquid propane autogas fuel systems for Ford F-250 and F-350 pickup trucks; Ford E-150, E-250 and E-350 vans and wagons; and Ford’s E-350 and E-450 cutaway series.
ROUSH CleanTech also offers autogas-fueled Blue Bird Vision and Micro Bird G5 buses. These vehicles are powered by 5.4L V8, 6.2L V8 or 6.8L V10 engines, depending on the model. Soon these offerings will be expanded to include larger medium-duty vehicles, such as the Ford F-450, F-550 and F-650 chassis cab series, plus the Ford F-59 stripped chassis – all utilizing the 6.8L V10 engine prepped for autogas.
