Clean Cities Backs Autogas-Powered Pickups and Plug-In Electrics

Roush CleanTech is spreading the word about another fleet deployment: three Ford- F-250 pickups converted to dedicated propane autogas operation for the National Park Service, specifically the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Michigan.

Roush propane-powered Ford F-250 for the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Michigan – one of six new low-emission vehicles for the Park.

Funding was provided by the U.S. Department of Energy with technical assistance from the Ann Arbor-based non-profit Clean Energy Coalition.

As a result of the initiative, which also included three new plug-in electric vehicles (2013 Ford Fusions), Sleeping Bear Dunes was able to reduce its fleet vehicle emissions by nearly 20%, Roush reports, “and promote the benefits of alternative fuels and fuel-efficient driving habits with its more than 1.3 million annual visitors.”

The project included establishment of a shared-resource motor pool structure for the Park fleet, and “eco-driver” training to all employees.
