The Versatility of Propane

Dear Friends of ROUSH CleanTech,

At ROUSH CleanTech, we talk a lot about the versatility of propane autogas. It can be used for school and paratransit buses, telecom and delivery vans, logistics and linen trucks, vegetation management service vehicles, and more. As the public and private sectors learn more about the widespread capabilities and performance of this clean-burning fuel, we continue to develop new products. We now have 14 platforms with plans for more in 2014.

Propane autogas has become a clean and cost-effective solution for fleets of all sizes and vehicle requirements. Telecommunications companies, such as DISH Network, school districts, like Omaha Public Schools, and bakery product distributors, like Alpha Baking, operate fleet vehicles on this abundant, domestic alternative fuel.

Name another alternative fuel that can work for fleets with one vehicle or thousands of vehicles. Not to mention, the diversity of the work performed. Propane autogas is used to do everything from delivering packages, to picking up school children, to shuttling people to and from an airport. The options are endless. And those are just some of the uses over the road with propane autogas.

Off road, lawn mowers, heaters and forklifts fueled by propane also provide economic and environmental benefits. To learn more about these and other applications, visit the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) website at Or stop by our booth No. 5003 or PERC’s booth No. 5103 at the NTEA Work Truck Show in March where we’ll have one of our vehicles on display.

With all the industries and customers using propane autogas now, it is becoming less and less of an alternative fuel, and more of the mainstream choice for fleets of all sizes. Contact us at 800.59.ROUSH to find out how you can use the fuel that is gaining so much traction.
