Roush CleanTech vehicles awarded alternative fuel system certification

July 11, 2012 By    

Roush CleanTech has received California Air Resources Board (CARB) approval of its propane autogas fuel system for retrofitting 2010 Ford E-150, E-250 and E-350 cargo vans and wagons. As an agency, CARB’s role is to improve air quality and reduce public exposure to air contaminants.

This is the first CARB certification awarded since 2000 for a liquefied petroleum gas retrofit system, and the first CARB certification for any alternative fuel system for a retrofit installation on a 2010 vehicle.

“We are excited to offer our customers in California another option for adopting clean, economical propane autogas into their fleets – without having to purchase a brand new chassis,” says Todd Mouw, vice president of sales and marketing for Roush CleanTech, in a press release.

With certification in hand for the 2010 model, Roush CleanTech is now pursuing similar retrofit certification for its 2012, 2011 and 2009 models of the same Ford E-series vans and wagons, as well as E-450 cutaway vehicle platforms.
