To honor the upcoming 100th birthday of the propane industry, Roush CleanTech is joining the festivities at the Propane Centennial Celebration and Propane Clean Air Rally & Autogas Parade in Atlanta. These events kick off at the 2012 National Propane Gas Association Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo April 14 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
Roush CleanTech has donated a propane autogas fuel system to be raffled along with a 2012 model year Ford F-250 at 4 p.m. ET on Sunday, April 15.
“Propane has seen many changes along its 100-year journey to what we call propane autogas today, both in application and acceptance by fleet managers, lawmakers and automobile industry leaders like Roush,” says Joe Thompson, president of Roush CleanTech. “This domestically produced, abundant fuel offers so many economical and environmental benefits to vehicle operators, and we’re pleased to celebrate its birthday and its bright future.”
Roush CleanTech will participate in the Propane Clean Air Rally & Autogas Parade. A Blue Bird school bus owned and operated by Hall County, Ga., and a Ford pickup truck owned and operated by DeKalb County, Ga., each featuring a Roush CleanTech liquid propane autogas fuel system, will be driven in the parade. The event, scheduled to begin at 12 p.m. ET on April 14 in Centennial Olympic Park, will include trucks, vans, buses, taxi cabs, forklifts, lawnmowers and more – all fueled by propane autogas.
Following the parade, the Roush CleanTech vehicles will be available at the Ride & Drive event and for product demonstrations, and Todd Mouw, Roush CleanTech’s vice president of sales and marketing, will be a featured speaker. During the expo, Roush CleanTech will display Hall County’s new Type C Blue Bird Propane-Powered Vision in the Propane Education & Research Council’s booth No. 309.
