ROUSH CleanTech has developed an extended-range propane autogas fuel tank for the Ford E-450 chassis, the vehicle modifier has announced.

With 64 usable gallons of propane autogas, the new tank holds 56 percent more fuel than the standard 41-usable-gallon tank option, according to ROUSH CleanTech.

“We listened to our paratransit customers who wanted the Ford E-450 chassis, yet also needed more autogas fuel capacity,” said Todd Mouw, vice president of sales and marketing. “With this extended range fuel tank, we offer the longest driving range for this model — plus an extended warranty for those customers.”

Built on Ford’s 6.0-liter V-10 engine, the E-450 with extended range fuel system comes with an extended 5-year, 100,000-mile warranty exclusively for the transit industry. E-450 vehicles retrofitted by ROUSH CleanTech have received certification from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

ROUSH will begin shipping the E-450 with the extended range fuel tank option in October, Mouw added.
