California school district purchases propane-fueled box trucks

July 11, 2016 By    

The Los Angeles Unified School District added propane autogas-powered box trucks to its fleet that delivers food and equipment to local schools.

The school district purchased 30 S2G trucks from Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC), featuring an 8.0-liter PIthon engine from Powertrain Integration. Freightliner says it engineered the trucks to meet the school district’s needs.

“It’s not unusual for us to tweak designs to suit what a customer is looking for,” says Ron Anders, western region accounts manager for FCCC, in a company newsletter. “In this case, we completed the design and built them a couple of units initially.”

The school district plans to purchase another 20 autogas-fueled S2G box trucks, according to FCCC.

Los Angeles Unified School District is the largest school district in California. It has been operating a variety of alternative fuel vehicles for several years, including 141 propane autogas school buses.
