Hacor Inc. added seven propane autogas vehicles to its fleet to deliver meals at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

Hacor, an in-flight airline catering service provider, purchased the propane-powered Ford F-750 delivery trucks to serve up to 15,000 airline meals per day to multiple airlines.

“LAX will significantly benefit from our low emission catering trucks, as will the nearby communities that we are operating from and within,” says Jason Lee, general manager of Hacor. “The versatility and reliability of these propane vehicles allows us to operate our standard delivery and operating methods, but with a low emission fuel.”

Each of Hacor’s vehicles is equipped with a Ford 6.8L V10 engine with a Roush CleanTech fuel system certified to 0.02 grams per brake horsepower-hour, using existing public propane autogas stations to refuel.

“Hacor’s new propane autogas vehicles emit fewer greenhouse gases, NOx and total hydrocarbon emissions, and virtually eliminate particulate matter,” says Todd Mouw, president of Roush CleanTech. “They will help to significantly clean up the air around LAX airport.”
