Roush CleanTech has developed a propane autogas fuel system for the Ford F-750 chassis that costs less than similar diesel counterparts. Operating up to 33,000 GVWR, the model was created in response to the growing demand for an autogas-fueled medium duty chassis for bobtail applications, cylinder delivery trucks, and larger tank setters and box trucks.

“Ford places great value on being a leader in the truck market by building reliable vehicles that consistently outperform competitors,” says Todd Mouw, vice president of sales and marketing for RoushCleanTech. “Now fleet managers can purchase an F-750 that not only costs less initially, but also saves money at the pump and uses a clean-operating, American-made fuel.”

The Ford F-750 base model comes with a 50-usable-gallon fuel tank, located on the driver side for ease of fueling. An extended tank option is available for those in need of more mileage.

Victory Propane, a propane supplier in Michigan, is one of the first in line to purchase the new Ford F-750. “Victory Propane already has 25 Ford F-650s equipped with the Roush CleanTech fuel system,” said Gregg Falberg, president of Victory Propane. “We will increase our autogas fleet with ROUSH’s first two Ford F-750s, and 13 more have been ordered.”

Historically, propane autogas costs up to 40 percent less than gasoline and 50 percent less than diesel. Each Ford F-750 equipped with this fuel system will emit about 120,000 lbs less of carbon dioxide over its lifetime compared to conventionally fueled counterparts.

Built on Ford’s 6.8L V10 engine, the vehicles meet stringent Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board certification requirements.
