6.8-Liter V-10 Engine, 50 Gallons of Propane Standard
Roush CleanTech has introduced a propane autogas fuel system for the Ford F-750 chassis it says “costs less than similar diesel counterparts.” updated April 11
“Operating up to 33,000 GVWR, the model was created in response to the growing demand for an autogas-fueled medium-duty chassis for bobtail applications, cylinder delivery trucks, and larger tank setters and box trucks,” states a release.
“Ford places great value on being a leader in the truck market by building reliable vehicles that consistently outperform competitors,” Roush CleanTech sales and marketing VP Todd Mouw says in the F-750 announcement.
“Now fleet managers can purchase an F-750 that not only costs less initially, but also saves money at the pump and uses a clean-operating, American-made fuel.”
15 on Order by Victory Propane
The Ford F-750 base model comes with a 50-usable-gallon fuel tank, located on the driver side for ease of fueling. An extended tank option is available for those in need of more mileage. The truck has Ford’s 6.8-liter V-10 engine.
An early taker is Victory Propane, a propane supplier in Michigan, Roush says. “Victory Propane already has 25 Ford F-650s equipped with the Roush CleanTech fuel system,” company president Gregg Falberg says in the Roush release.
“We will increase our autogas fleet with Roush’s first two Ford F-750s, and 13 more have been ordered,” he said.
The first production propane-powered Ford F-750 is on show at the NPGA Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo in Nashville April 8-10.
