Will Ford’s New F-150 Be a Game Changer for Alternative Fuels?

One thing that stood out at the recent ACT Expo alternative vehicle fuels conference in Dallas was the number of vehicles available from Ford Motor Co. Not only does Ford offer the typical hybrid and plug-in electric cars that appeal to many daily drivers, but the Blue Oval also has a lineup of vans, wagons, and trucks that can run on gas and diesel alternatives such as natural gas and propane. Ford’s lineup of alt-fuel vehicles is easily the broadest in the industry.  At ACT Expo, Ford unveiled its 2016 F-150 with a twist: It is now available with a gaseous-prep version of its 5.0-liter V8 engine, meaning fleet operators looking to use cheaper, cleaner-burning natural gas or propane will very soon be able to buy this truck.
