ROUSH CleanTech will begin offering a 35-gallon propane autogas fuel tank for medium-duty trucks such as the Ford F-450 and F-550, the Livonia, Mich.-based vehicle modifier has announced.

The company will show the new single-saddle tank at the NPGA Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo in Nashville on April 22 and 23.

"The innovative propane autogas fuel tank configuration for these heavier-duty Ford trucks provides the propane industry with another option for their fleets," said Todd Mouw, vice president of sales and marketing. "Companies can fuel all of their Class 4-7 work trucks and bobtails with the same product they sell."

Propane suppliers and other companies that use 84-inch cab-to-axle fleet vehicles no longer need to order a size up to accommodate a propane tank, according to the company. The new tank will fit 84-inch, 120-inch and 180-inch cab axles.

Applications for the propane autogas-fueled F-450 / F-550 trucks with the new tank design include box trucks, flat beds, service trucks, mini-bobtails, crane trucks and cylinder delivery trucks. The ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas vehicles maintain the same horsepower, torque and towing capacity as their Ford gasoline-fueled counterparts, according to the company.
