ThompsonGas, a company providing propane services, has partnered with Roush CleanTech, a leader in advanced clean transportation solutions, to expand its fleet of 127 propane vehicles by adding ten new 2022 Ford F-750 trucks equipped with ROUSH CleanTech propane systems.

ThompsonGas has concentrated its efforts on running additional propane cars because of its dedication to being an industry pioneer and access to OEM equipment technology. The propane supplier will add more propane cars to its fleet every year. Customers will receive propane fuel from ThompsonGas' new trucks.

Monte McLeod, director of autogas at ThompsonGas, said: "Our customers operate vehicles fueled by propane autogas. We want to walk the walk and show our customers that we believe in propane and its technology. Plus, running our vehicles on propane saves money and supports our goal to be good stewards for the environment."

Propane autogas is around half the price of diesel per gallon and is known to have the lowest total cost of ownership of any fuel type. Compared to diesel-powered vehicles, ThompsonGas' propane vehicles have a 60 per cent lower cost per mile.

Also, Compared to traditional fuels, propane autogas vehicles generate fewer greenhouse gases, smog-producing hydrocarbons, and particulates. The Ford 7.3L V8 engine, when combined with the ROUSH CleanTech propane fuel system, has a low nitrogen oxide level of 0.05 g, making it 75 per cent cleaner than the EPA's most stringent heavy-duty engine regulation.

Todd Mouw, executive vice president of sales and marketing for ROUSH CleanTech, said: "ROUSH CleanTech continues investing in new technology development to provide sustainable propane vehicle options. Propane's low cost for fuel and maintenance makes adopting propane vehicles economically feasible for all fleet operators, especially propane suppliers."
