By 2020, Clean Cities aims to cut U.S. petroleum use by 2.5 billion gallons per year.

An advocate for alternative fuels, ROUSH CleanTech has been supporting that effort since 2007 through its propane autogas technology.

Propane autogas is a clean-burning, domestic fuel that typically costs 30 to 50 percent less than gasoline and diesel. It is a readily available fuel that has a solidly growing infrastructure of fueling stations.

Each Colorado Mountain Express van fueled by propane autogas saves the company almost $19,000 at the pump and emits 42,000 fewer pounds of carbon dioxide.

ROUSH CleanTech has contributed toward Clean Cities’ goal by:

• Replacing over 5,500 gasoline vehicles with propane autogas vehicles between 2007 and 2013. These fleet vehicles will burn an estimated 200 million fewer gallons of petroleum over their lifetime.

• Putting more than 1,200 propane autogas fleet vehicles on the road in the first half of 2014 alone. An additional 51 million gallons of petroleum will be removed from use with these alternatively fueled vehicles.

Working together, Clean Cities and alternative fuel technology manufacturers can accomplish the goal of moving toward a cleaner environment, decreasing dependence on imported oil and reducing petroleum in transportation.


“Propane autogas is the most commonly used alternative fuel in the nation and the world.”
