When gasoline was $4 per gallon in 2008, you could still buy propane for under $2 per gallon, with tax credits. The typical user will save up to $2,000 per year in fuel costs.
Elmira, NY (PRWEB) February 3, 2009
Don Ferrario, President of Ferrario Auto Team, is proud to announce that an agreement has been reached with ROUSH Performance, for Ferrario Ford to be the Installation Center for ROUSH Propane vehicles in the Northeast U.S. Information on Ferrario Ford's ROUSH Liquid Propane Injection System can be found at http://www.drive propane.com.
With the introduction of the ROUSH Liquid Propane Injection system for the Ford F-150, ROUSH Performance has instantly become the leading supplier of Alternative Fuel Vehicles of this type. Ferrario Ford is performing F-150 upgrades now, and will begin production of the F-250 and Econoline models later in 2009.
"Every ROUSH Propane Vehicle is one less burning imported gasoline or diesel," said Don Ferrario. "Although derived from petroleum, over 90% of propane is sourced in the U.S., with an additional 7% from Canada. Individuals, businesses, and municipalities can now purchase a no-compromise vehicle that burns virtually no imported oil."
Selection as the Northeast U.S. installation center will be a great economic boost for Elmira, NY. Over the next few years, Ferrario anticipates upfitting several thousand Ford trucks. Customers may purchase a completed unit from Ferrario, or work with their local Ford Dealer to send a vehicle to Ferrario for upfit. Ferrario Ford is the ROUSH Propane installation center for customers in CT, D.C., MA, MD, ME, NH, NY, PA, VT, and WV.
A Federal Tax Credit of $2,500 applies to the F-150, and a $5,000 Federal Tax Credit applies to the F-250 and Econoline models. A Federal Tax Credit of 50 cents per gallon applies to propane used in motor vehicles. With that tax credit, users can fuel their ROUSH Liquid Propane Injection truck for about $1.30 per gallon at today's prices. As Don Ferrario explains, "When gasoline was $4 per gallon in 2008, you could still buy propane for under $2 per gallon, with tax credits. The typical user will save up to $2,000 per year in fuel costs."
