Alliance AutoGas Unveils New Propane/Gasoline Ford F-150 System

Alliance AutoGas this week unveiled a new Propane Port Fuel Direct Injection (P-PFDI) conversion system for the 2018 Ford F-150 with either 3.3L V6 or 5.0L V8. The system, which relies on Ford’s new dual injection, continues to utilize the in-cylinder injectors to provide gasoline as a combustion lubricant, while using the port injectors to supply propane autogas.

Propane autogas is “the most popular alternative fuel world-wide, proven in more than 28 million vehicles,” according to Ed Hoffman, President of Alliance AutoGas parent Blossman Services. That’s thanks to the fuel’s low cost, easy implementation, and suitable combustion characteristics (octane, energy density). But beyond that, propane autogas also burns cleaner than conventional gasoline, and in fact, Alliance AutoGas says their new P-PFDI system puts the Ford F-150 3.3L in the same emissions class as the Hyundai Elantra and Subaru Outback, while the 5.0L is in a class with the Chevrolet Volt and Toyota Yaris.

There aren’t too many downsides, either; Alliance AutoGas says their P-PFDI system performs perfectly well in extreme weather conditions, with no cold-start issues and no hot weather complications.

Alliance AutoGas and its nationwide service network are offering their Propane Port Fuel Direct Injection conversions for the 2018 Ford F-150 with a 5-year/100k-mile warranty. In the future, the company figures it will have even more vehicles to convert for P-PFDI as dual-injection continues to gain ground in commercial vehicles.
