Propane autogas van

Plymouth Township, MI (Vocus/PRWEB) January 26, 2011

A ROUSH CleanTech liquid propane autogas powered Ford E-350 cargo van will be on display at the Advanced Technology SuperHighway exhibit at the Washington Auto Show, January 28 to February 6 in Washington D.C.

Dejana, a key U.S. distributor for ROUSH CleanTech’s liquid propane autogas fuel system, will feature the van as a part of the exhibit. “We supply a lot of truck equipment to fleets and municipalities and have worked closely with them on their alternative fuel initiatives,” says Andy Dejana, vice president of Dejana Truck & Utility Equipment. “We are excited about the propane autogas technology and have found that it is simple, cost-effective, and a proven performer.”

The 65,000-square-foot Advanced Technology SuperHighway exhibit will present the latest automotive innovations in safety and sustainability, including propane autogas, electric, diesel, natural gas, advanced petroleum, biofuels, ethanol, hydrogen, and safety technologies. Consumers and legislators will have the opportunity to view alternative fuel vehicles, such as this propane autogas van, up close.

ROUSH CleanTech’s President Joe Thompson calls propane autogas a “right here, right now” fuel alternative with a national infrastructure already in place. “This cost effective, environmentally friendly fuel is available today, with many vehicle products offerings including trucks and vans,” said Thompson. “And beyond it’s proven ‘green’ benefits, propane is domestically produced, reducing our country’s dependence on imported oil.

“ROUSH CleanTech’s propane autogas powered vehicles offer the same range, horsepower, torque, and towing capacity as their gasoline powered counterparts,” continued Thompson. “That’s why we call it the zero compromise alternative fuel solution.”

Propane autogas is historically 30 percent less expensive per gallon than gasoline, and the clean-burning fuel means less maintenance costs. It is the most widely used alternative fuel in the United States, powering over 270,000 vehicles in the United States. Worldwide, more than 13 million vehicles run on propane autogas. In addition, thousands of propane fueling stations across the United States make propane readily available.
