Alliance AutoGas set a new upfit record of 1:21:00 while converting a 2017 F-250 live at the recent Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

That time beat last year’s F-150 conversion record at the Work Truck Show of 1:32:25, which up until last week’s show had been recorded as the fastest live propane autogas conversion.

“The live conversion was not being done this year for speed or to break any records—only to show consistency, and ease of install on any vehicle,” said Ed Hoffman, president, Blossman Services.

Stacey Snyder, conversion specialist from Alliance AutoGas, in Asheville, N.C., assisted Kevin Oglesby, conversion specialist from Alliance member Southern Alternatives in Athens, Ga., in the installation of the Alliance AutoGas engineered conversion system.

“We worked methodically and not particularly fast. Show attendees were encouraged to come up and watch the installation closely and ask us questions,” Snyder said. “It is a testament to how far we have come with the Alliance conversion kits. Any conversion specialist can do it in the same time Kevin and I did.”

Alliance AutoGas reports that its Plug and Play EPA and NFPA 58 compliant autogas conversion system can be installed on new or in-service vehicles in half the time of other solutions.  Designed to require no fabrication, every bracket, nut, and bolt is included for each vehicle specific system.

“By deploying these features, fleets reduce labor times and conversion costs with more consistent installations,” Alliance reports.

Bi-fuel conversions allow for the original gasoline components to remain with the vehicle as a backup, giving fleets the flexibility to switch between propane autogas or gasoline fueling.

Every system is compliant with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 58 standards and provides dramatic harmful emissions reductions.

Alliance’s conversion kit is supported by an industry leading 5-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
