Catering service at LAX Airport is now offered by Autogas delivery trucks

At Los Angeles International Airport, airline passengers are now enjoying meals delivered by clean-burning Autogas vehicles, as in-flight airline catering services provider HACOR has purchased seven Ford F-750 delivery trucks powered by LPG. The new vehicles are already in service and will refuel at existing public LPG stations in the area.

“LAX will significantly benefit from our low emission catering trucks, as will the nearby communities that we are operating from and within,” said Jason Lee, general manager of HACOR, which delivers up to 15,000 airline meals per day out of LAX. “The versatility and reliability of these Autogas 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. This engine has the lowest NOx levels of any LPG engine in class 4-7 vehicles and is 90% cleaner than the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) most stringent heavy-duty engine standard.

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