Why consider making the switch to Propane Autogas for your fleet? Consider these 8 benefits.
It’s cost-effective – Propane Autogas has historically cost 20 to 50 percent less than gasoline per gallon. Even when factor in the cost to convert your vehicles you’ll still be ahead of the game in just a few years – especially when you factor in government incentives.
It’s an upgrade from electric – Not only to propane vehicles cost less upfront than their electric counterparts ($100K vs. $300K for a propane school bus compared to an electric model, for example), but with renewable propane coming soon, they’ll even outperform electric vehicles in terms of their carbon footprint!
Your vehicles will spend less time in the shop – Because propane burns cleaner than gasoline, your fleet will run longer and spend less time in the shop.
It’s readily available – Propane is already produced in natural gas and oil refineries, so no new technology or capital investment is needed for the industry.
It’s road-tested – Millions of cars and trucks worldwide have been using Propane Autogas for decades, including 23 million that are on the road right now.
It’s safe – Propane tanks are 20 times as puncture-resistant as gasoline tanks and require no ongoing testing as long as they hold product and have an identifiable data plate (unlike CNG tanks, which require ongoing testing). Propane Autogas vehicles are tested extensively to perform safely in both normal driving and crash situations, with specially designed pressure relief devices installed in every tank to allow the safe release of pressure should it rise above preset levels.
It’s eco-friendly – Burning propane auto gas produces 60 percent less carbon monoxide, 20 percent less nitrogen oxides, up to 24 percent less greenhouse gas and 99% fewer particulate emissions. Compared to gasoline or diesel, choosing Propane Autogas reduces your carbon footprint.
It’s American – More than 90 percent of the US supply of Propane Autogas is produced domestically – so every gallon you buy reduces our country’s dependence on foreign oil.
