ThompsonGas Autogas Bobtail, Service Truck in ROUSH CleanTech Booth

LIVONIA, MICH. — ROUSH CleanTech showcased two propane autogas-fueled vehicles used by ThompsonGas in its booth at the 2023 Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo, April 23-25 in Nashville.

ThompsonGas, based in Frederick, Md., operates 10 2021 Ford F-750 bobtails and this year is adding five 2022 F-550 trucks for delivery, service and sales. The bobtails run about 10,000 miles annually, while the service vehicles will operate between 25,000 and 30,000 miles per year. ROUSH CleanTech manufactures the propane fuel system for the vehicles.

According to Monte McLeod, ThompsonGas director of autogas, the company initially received autogas vehicles through an acquisition, and “decided to double down on it by making an autogas-focused division.”

McLeod said the bobtails handle transportation of propane autogas without issue while promoting the fuel they sell.

“ThompsonGas recommends all marketers should be driving vehicles with the fuel they sell not only for the fuel savings and environmental benefits, but also that it shows they are walking the walk and really believe in the fuel,” McLeod said. He added that “our drivers are always asking when they’ll get to drive one.”
