AmeriGas Propane has purchased 50 propane autogas-powered Ford F-550 trucks from ROUSH CleanTech, more than doubling its propane autogas medium-duty fleet, the propane supplier announced.

The company previously purchased 35 ROUSH-produced propane autogas F-550s that were deployed at the end of 2013. All of AmeriGas’ propane autogas F-550s are equipped with cranes to deliver propane tanks to customer sites across the nation.

Over the lifetime of the propane autogas F-550 vehicles, more than 12.7 million pounds of carbon dioxide are expected to be eliminated from AmeriGas’ total carbon footprint, according to the company.

“By fueling with the product it supplies, AmeriGas is proving to its millions of customers that propane as an engine fuel is realistic and being used today in their communities,” said Todd Mouw, vice president of sales and marketing for ROUSH CleanTech.
