One of US top 10 LPG suppliers bets on this clean burning fuel to power its fleet

Maryland-based ThompsonGas has increased its fleet of 127 Autogas vehicles by adding 10 new 2022 Ford F-750 trucks, equipped with ROUSH CleanTech systems, which will be used to deliver LPG to customers. The Ford 7.3L V8 engine paired with ROUSH CleanTech LPG fuel system is certified to the low NOx level of 0.05 g, making it 75% cleaner than the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) most stringent heavy-duty engine standard.

ThompsonGas has focused efforts to operate more LPG-powered vehicles due to its commitment to being innovators in the industry, along with access to OEM equipment technology. The LPG supplier will continue adding more of these vehicles to its fleet each year, demonstrating its focus on low-emission, low-cost transportation fuel source.

“Our customers operate vehicles fuelled by Autogas. We want to walk the walk and show our customers that we believe in LPG and its technology, too,” said Monte McLeod, Director of Autogas at ThompsonGas. “Plus, running our own vehicles on LPG saves money and supports our goal to be good stewards for the environment.”

“ROUSH CleanTech continues investing in new technology development to provide sustainable Autogas vehicle options,” said Todd Mouw, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for ROUSH CleanTech. “The low cost for fuel and maintenance makes adopting LPG vehicles economically feasible for all fleet operators, especially propane suppliers.”

Autogas costs about 50% less per gallon than diesel and is known to have the lowest cost of ownership compared with all fuel types. ThompsonGas’ LPG vehicle cost per mile is 60% lower compared with its diesel-powered models. For more information, please visit this link.
