The engineering firm of Roush Industries Inc. has developed a propane- powered F-150 Ford pickup truck using an advanced liquid propane injection system. The Roush F-150 is designed and manufactured to operate solely on propane while providing the same horsepower, torque and drivability of an F-150 equipped with a gasoline-powered Triton V-8 engine. The goal of the propane conversion is lower emissions and reduced consumption of oil products.
The propane option is priced at $6,500 and includes a 20-gallon fuel tank mounted in place of the underbody spare tire. For customers needing increased range, a 50-gallon tank mounted in the truck’s bed is available.
The development of the propane-fueled F-150 was sponsored by the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC), a group that funds research and development of new and more efficient propane equipment. Once PERC chose Roush to develop the propane-fueled truck, the engineering firm delivered the Roush F-150 in 14 months. Roush is taking orders for the truck.
