MT. LAUREL, NJ -- Automotive Resources International (ARI), which provides fleet management and leasing services, has unveiled its ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas demo vehicle to provide in-house demonstrations of this technology to clients. 

“We’re excited and eager to share this green fleet option with our customers,” said Carl Ortell, ARI president. “It’s important for our clients to fully understand any technology before they implement it, and this propane demonstration vehicle will give them hands-on experience with how the vehicle functions and performs.”
