Alliance AutoGas earns certification for heavy-duty autogas system

April 22, 2023 By    

Alliance AutoGas (AAG) will showcase the newly EPA-certified Alliance Engineered System for the Ford 7.3-liter heavy-duty engine in the Autogas Pavilion at the 2023 Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo in Nashville, Tennessee.

The system will be displayed on a freestanding engine in AAG’s booth and on a 2022 Ford F-350 Reading Body with a 7.3-liter engine system, presented by Reading Truck. Reading Truck has been an AAG conversion partner for two years.

“I believe that we are changing the industry by bringing on upfitters such as Reading Tuck, who provide the industry a seamless transition into autogas-powered vehicles,” says Josh Budworth, director of business development at AAG. “It is easier than ever to run on our own industry’s fuel – a fuel that reduces emissions and fuel expenses. If we take away the pain points, such as vehicle downtime, to get a company’s vehicle converted, we take away any reason to continue with traditional fuels. Autogas is how we will continue to grow our industry.”

In data published on the EPA’s website, the AAG 7.3-liter heavy-duty engine system outperforms gasoline in all tested emissions measurements. See chart below:
