Nestlé Waters North America has expanded its propane autogas fleet by adding 155 Ford F-650 beverage delivery trucks powered by the alternative fuel.

The company added the medium-duty trucks to the save on maintenance and fuel costs and for "environmental stewardship," according to the company. The trucks were added to the company’s existing propane autogas fleet of 30 Ford trucks of the same model.

“We’ve been running propane autogas vehicles since 2014," said Bill Ardis, national fleet manager for the company. "Because of the proven emissions reductions and cost savings, we knew it was the right choice to expand our fleet with this domestically produced alternative fuel.”

Propane costs Nestlé Waters an average of $1 per gallon versus $2 per gallon the company spends on diesel.

The delivery trucks are equipped with a California Air Resources Board and EPA-compliant ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas fuel system with a 45-gallon fuel tank.

The Nestlé Waters North America propane trucks are used to deliver products to customers across the country. These units will be deployed in April.
