Knapheide Offering Roush Propane Fuel Systems

April 14, 2010

LIVONIA, MI - ROUSH Performance announced the Knapheide Manufacturing Company has become its newest partner to sell and install their line of ROUSH liquid propane fuel systems for Ford Commercial trucks, vans, and cutaways.

As the industry leader in service truck bodies and platforms, Knapheide is forming the partnership with ROUSH to provide its customers with the best possible combination of technology using propane-powered alternative fuel vehicles. Many fleets are looking to lower their operating costs and address environmental concerns, both of which are achieved by switching to propane as a motor fuel.

"It's exciting to have Knapheide on board selling the ROUSH propane fuel systems. Knapheide has been a leader for many decades in providing solutions to commercial vehicle users and we look forward to working with their team to help fleets achieve their fuel reduction and emissions goals. Propane can begin saving fleets money today, not some time in the distant future, and it burns remarkably clean which helps the environment," said Todd Mouw, vice-president of sales and marketing for ROUSH Performance.

As an alternative fuel, propane offers a variety of advantages. It is available "right here, right now" with a national fueling infrastructure already in place. Propane burns cleaner, with up to 20 percent less nitrogen oxide, up to 60 percent less carbon monoxide and fewer particulate emissions. It is already the third most widely used fuel worldwide, following gasoline and diesel. Propane is 90 percent domestically produced, and as an alternative fuel, the purchase of propane-powered vehicles are eligible for a variety of federal, state, and municipal tax credits or rebates.
