Additional InformationROUSH Propane Executive Summary
ROUSH has been working for 3 years in conjunction with the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) and Ford Motor Company to develop liquid propane injection (LPI) systems for a variety of Ford vehicles.
These vehicles include:
- 2007 Ĺ & 2008 Ford F-150 (5.4L V8)
- 2009 & 2010 Ford F-250 & F-350 (5.4L V8)
- 2009 and newer E-150, E-250, E-350, and E-350 cutaway (5.4L V8)
- 2009 and newer E-450 cutaway vans (6.8L V10)
ROUSH developed propane systems to offer the same horsepower, torque and towing ratings as their gasoline-powered equivalents. This is a significant development in that previous generation vapor injection propane systems compromised these performance categories.
There is no impact to the factory 3 year / 36,000 mile base warranty or the 5 year / 60,000 mile powertrain warranty. ROUSH propane-powered vehicles can be serviced by any of Fordís 3,800 dealers.
There are more than 13 million vehicles worldwide that are powered by propane making it the 3rd most common engine fuel behind gas and diesel
A "GREEN" ALTERNATIVE
Propane significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions (19%), nitrogen oxide emissions (20%) and carbon monoxide emissions (60%) vs. gasoline engine operation.
REDUCE YOUR OPERATING COSTS
Fleet customers are seeing a significant savings in operating costs when converting from gas to propane from lower fuel costs and from tax credit opportunities:
Lower Fuel Costs -
Propane has generally been 30% less expensive on a per-gallon basis than gasoline for the past 15 years. And because Propane is a bi-product of the natural gas and petroleum refining process, it generally follows the same up and down changes as gasoline and diesel prices, so you won't have to worry about Propane prices climbing higher than gasoline after you convert.
Tax Credit Opportunities -
There is an existing federal tax credit that pays up to 50% of the incremental cost of converting your vehicle to propane from gasoline or diesel (up to $5,000) and a $.50 per gallon fuel credit when a fleet has their own propane fueling infrastructure.
Plus, the cost of adding propane fueling infrastructure is inexpensive and most of the 10,000 plus propane distributors across the country will install infrastructure at NO cost so they can provide the fuel to your fleet.
REDUCE OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL
More than 90% of the propane used in the United States is produced domestically. Not only does this ensure consistent supply, it also helps reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
A SAFE ALTERNATIVE
Worldwide use of propane has shown that, based on per capita use, propane has one of the best safety records of any fuel-conventional or alternative. Propane tanks are 20 times more puncture resistant than conventional fuel tanks, and propane has a much narrower flammability range than gasoline or deisel, which means it takes a much more specific set of circumstances to ignite.
ROUSH systems are in compliance with all CARB, EPA, NHTSA and NFPA safety regulations
