Making the Switch to Propane
It Costs Less Than Gasoline or Diesel
Autogas is typically more than a dollar less per gallon than gasoline, making it the lowest priced alternative fuel for your fleet. In fact, autogas costs less even when you factor in the cost to convert your fleet
It Reduces Engine Wear and Tear
With a higher octane rating than gasoline, clean-burning propane fuel enables you to spend less on maintenance and keep your vehicles on the road longer
It’s Road Tested
More than 17 million vehicles around the world are using autogas; in fact, it’s the third most common vehicle fuel in the world
The federal government considers propane a safe vehicle fuel, and autogas tanks are 20 times more puncture resistant as gasoline tanks. Among alternative motor fuels, propane has the lowest flammability range.
It’s Easy to Get
Because propane is already produced in natural gas and oil refineries, no new technology or capital investment is needed for the industry to add capacity. Fueling stations are becoming more common, too, with more than 2,500 already in place. (If you want even more convenience, Froman Propane can help you install an onsite fueling station for your fleet – contact us for details.)
Autogas produces 20 percent less carbon monoxide, 40 percent less nitrogen oxide and 10 percent less carbon dioxide than gasoline. By going green, your business can help the environment and strengthen its message to environmentally conscious customers.
More than 90 percent of the US supply of autogas is produced right here at home (with another 7 percent made in Canada) – so every gallon you buy reduces our country’s dependence on foreign oil.
