Supported by partners, Clean City Coalitions and corporate sponsors, Alliance AutoGas is embarking on a 5300+ mile, 12-city, cross-country road trip—the Alliance AutoGas Coast-to-Coast Clean Air Ride—with its record-setting propane autogas F-150. The event is being hosted by the Metropolitan Energy Center/Kansas City Regional Clean Cities in conjunction with Veolia/Kansas City Transportation Group and Alliance AutoGas.
The converted F-150 will travel across the country from Kansas City to Seattle, WA, and back through the US, stopping along the way, to complete its journey in Jacksonville, FL, on 18 May, followed by a Homecoming event in Asheville, NC, on 23 May.
Alliance’s new Engineered Conversion System, installed on a Bi-Fuel 2016 3.5-liter Ford F-150 V6, was converted to propane autogas almost 30 minutes faster than the predicted 2 hour window at the recent Work Truck Show in Indianapolis. Behind the autogas truck, they will be trailering a propane mower. The propane mower is a 2013 Exmark Lazer Z Ultra Cut 60. It is powered by a 25.5 horsepower Kawasaki FX801 V-Twin gasoline engine, converted to propane by Alliance Small Engines.
