Roush CleanTech is promoting a new optional fuel tank for its propane autogas-fueled Ford E-450 vehicles. The new tank will hold more than half again as much fuel as today’s 41-gallon tanks: 64 gallons, for an increase of 56%.

“We listened to our paratransit customers who wanted the Ford E-450 chassis, yet also needed more autogas fuel capacity,” Roush sales and marketing VP Todd Mouw said in a release.

“With this extended range fuel tank, we offer the longest driving range for this model – plus an extended warranty for those customers.”

The Ford E-450 with extended range fuel system comes with an extended 5-year, 100,000-mile warranty exclusively for the transit industry. The vehicles have 6.8-liter Ford V-10 engines.

“A South Carolina Transit agency will be running the first production systems,” Mouw told F&F.
