Roush Propane Kit

By -




(August 20, 2008) – ROUSH® has long been considered as Detroit’s foremost Tier
1 advanced powertrain engineering company and well known for producing massive
horsepower from gasoline engines. Now this same company has turned their resources
towards helping fleet customers save money and reduce greenhouse gasses by
utilizing propane as a fuel.


Hot on the heels of the successful launch of the ROUSH
Liquid Propane Injected F-150, a fully-assembled and government-certified pickup
truck, comes news that the company is offering a full conversion
kit to transform any 2007.5 or 2008 gasoline-powered
5.4 liter, V8 engine into one that runs on propane with no loss of horsepower,
torque or towing capacity.


With an estimated eight-hour install time, fleet customers
can be collecting the benefits of using propane – lower fuel pricing per gallon
and much lower emissions. This ROUSH Liquid Propane Injection Kit will be
available in September through Ford dealers and fleet companies and has a suggested retail price of $8,595.00. And with propane
costing up to $1.35 less per gallon on average than gasoline, it won’t take
long for the ROUSH propane conversion kit to pay for itself – and that’s before
the tax credits are taken into account for using propane as an alternative


The complete conversion kit includes a new fuel tank with
multi-valve fuel pump, stainless steel fuel lines, billet aluminum fuel rails,
an upgraded custom ROUSH PCM calibration, and all necessary wiring, hardware
and instructions for install.


“The propane infrastructure is already well-entrenched and
within just a few hours a customer can convert their F-150 pickup to run on
this affordable alternative fuel,” said Jack Roush. “Once installed, they will
notice no difference in the way the truck runs, the power or payload capacity,
yet they can reap the benefits of a lower fuel cost and reduced emissions, both
topics that are at the top of mind for fleet owners.”


According to research provided by the
Propane Education and Research Council (PERC), propane is the most widely-used
alternative fuel today, with more than 10 million vehicles around the world
using it as a fuel.
Operating costs typically range from five to 30
percent less than those of a gasoline-powered fleet, and on average create 20
percent less nitrous oxide, up to 60 percent less carbon monoxide and fewer
particulate emissions.
