If you find that fueling your fleet vehicles is costly in both terms of time and money, there is a solution.
Convert your fleet to run on propane!
Propane saves you money because it’s the lowest priced alternative fuel on the market today. On average, it costs about 50% less than the same amount of gasoline. Autogas burns much more cleanly than gasoline or diesel, giving you better fuel efficiency so you’ll save even more money.
And because propane burns cleaner than gasoline, you won’t be spending as much money on maintenance. Your fleet will be on the road, not in the shop. Propane engines also last longer than gasoline or diesel engines.
Your customers may value environmental friendliness. Using propane autogas is a way to show that your business does, too.
Propane autogas burns much more cleanly than gasoline or diesel. That clean burning dramatically reduces a vehicle’s greenhouse emissions. Exhaust from autogas creates up to 70% fewer smog-producing hydrocarbons than gasoline or diesel. Compared to gasoline, propane yields 12% less carbon dioxide, about 20% less nitrogen oxide, and up to 60% less carbon monoxide.
Propane can also be used to power equipment like forklifts and commercial mowers. They are more cost-effective in both time and money savings.
You also save because, unlike gasoline or diesel, propane doesn’t gel in very cold weather. Your vehicles will start easily and keep going.
Businesses aren’t the only institutions that can reap the rewards of converting to propane gas.
Municipalities and school districts all over the country are converting vehicles to autogas.
Vehicles ranging from police cars to trucks and vans are being converted to run on propane autogas. That results in lower costs in both fuel and maintenance for residents.
School buses run on autogas can reduce nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions by 96% compared with school buses run on diesel. They also have less wear, which reduces maintenance and repair costs. Those savings can go towards academic programs for students.
