CleanFUEL, Freightliner Introduce Propane Autogas Engine for Medium-Duty Trucks
CleanFUEL USA, a supplier of propane-autogas infrastructure and engine systems, has teamed with Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC) to introduce a propane autogas-fueled vehicle option for the medium-duty commercial market. The new Freightliner S2G chassis is equipped with CleanFUEL USA liquid propane injected engine technology.
Built on Freightliner’s popular S2 chassis, the S2G’s 8-liter, 325 horsepower engine offers clean-burning propane autogas engine technology on a platform already known for its durability, reliability, maneuverability and design flexibility. As the only propane autogas-fueled option available to the medium-duty commercial market, the Freightliner S2G chassis is suitable for pickup and delivery, school transportation and municipal applications.
Propane autogas is the third most widely used transportation fuel globally, behind gasoline and diesel. As the lowest greenhouse gas emitting fuel, propane autogas averages 40-50% less emissions than gasoline/diesel per gallon.
There are more than 52,000 autogas refueling stations and 17 million propane-powered vehicles worldwide.
