Clean Cities Coalitions Hosting F-150 from Work Truck Show
Alliance AutoGas is planning a 5,500-mile “Coast-to-Coast Clean Air Ride” to promote its propane autogas prowess. The 12-city tour is to commence May 2 in Kansas City and finish in Jacksonville, Fla. on May 18 – looping to Seattle on the way.
The centerpiece is the Ford F-150 Alliance AutoGas converted to propane-gasoline bi-fuel operation on the floor of the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis last month (F&F, March 7). The truck will tow a 2013 Exmark Lazer Z Ultra Cut 60 with Kawasaki FX801 V-Twin gasoline engine, converted to propane by Alliance Small Engines.
“We hope to educate citizens across the country about the extended range of autogas vehicles as well as the benefits of real costs savings and emissions reductions,” Alliance AutoGas president Stuart Weidie said in a release.
‘Simple and Easy’
“We want people to see first-hand how simple and easy it is to convert a vehicle, how well it runs, and a how it gives the fleet manager a well-documented return,” said Blossman Services president Ed Hoffman.
Alliance AutoGas names PERC, the Propane Education & Research Council, the American Lung Association of the Southeast, Bobit Business Media as Clean Air Ride partners.
