Why Propane Autogas?

Propane autogas makes sense for many reasons. It has the lowest total cost of ownership of any alternative fuel. Plus, cost of maintenance is greatly reduced because propane autogas operates much cleaner than gasoline or diesel and doesn’t require costly diesel after-treatment items. Add in ROUSH CleanTech’s exclusive partnership with Ford, which results in a purpose-built engine, and your step into the world of alternative fuels is seamless. Propane autogas vehicles offer:
  • Lowest total cost of ownership.
  • Substantial fuel and maintenance savings.
  • Quick return on investment.
  • Emissions-reducing technology.
  • Exceptional cold-weather startups.
  • Reduced noise pollution.
  • Abundant, domestically produced energy.
  • Funding and tax credit opportunities.
