ROUSH Eyes Propane Van Retrofits
Fleets and Fuels
ROUSH CleanTech has stepped up its work on propane van retrofits, seeking California Air Resources Board certifications for 2009, 2011 and 2012 model year Ford E-series vehicles to complement a 2010 approval already in hand.
The new 2010 approval is said to be the first CARB certification awarded since 2000 for a propane-LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) retrofit, and the first CARB certification for any alternative fuel system for 2010 model year retrofits. It applies to Ford E-150, E-250 and E-350 cargo vans and wagons with 5.4-liter engines. The new retrofit certifications for 2009, 2011 and 2012 would apply to the E-450 cutaway, too.
