A few manufacturers offer OEM autogas vehicles. Some of these are OEM-equivalent, meaning the vehicles are equipped with a propane autogas fueling system immediately after production. The offerings include:
• ROUSH Ford F-150 through F-350 trucks, E-150 through E-450 vans and shuttle buses
• General Motors Chevy Express, GMC Savana and other medium-duty Autogas-dedicated propane autogas vehicles
• School buses from Blue Bird Corporation and Collins Bus
New propane autogas vehicles cost on average $10-15,000 more than factory gasoline vehicles, but some states offer tax credits to offset the additional costs associated with the purchase of new autogas vehicles. The Alliance AutoGas bi-fuel conversion system typically costs between $5-6,000, depending on the vehicle type, not including labor.
Visit the Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Data Center (AFDC) website to search for light-duty or heavy-duty autogas vehicles.
