Even as diesel and gasoline prices have stabilized and declined over the past five years, fleet markets for propane Autogas vehicles – school buses, shuttles, work trucks, vans, commercial delivery vehicles, mowers and others – continue to grow. What was once a well-kept secret among alternative fuels, propane Autogas is a proven and trusted choice for performance, environmental benefits, and total cost of ownership savings that is clearly superior to diesel and gasoline.
“We continue to see that once transportation directors start to realize all the benefits of propane Autogas — lower fuel and maintenance costs, reduced emissions, optimized performance, and the lowest refueling infrastructure costs of any energy source — they wonder why they didn’t adopt propane Autogas sooner,” said Steve Whaley, Director of Autogas Business Development at PERC.
To showcase these Autogas advantages, innovations and options, Clean Fuels Ohio is partnering with Roush CleanTech. They’re hosting an upcoming webinar for public and private sector fleet partners to outline the options and opportunities for fleets to adopt propane powered vehicles that provide the maximum operational, economic, and environmental benefits.
March, 10th, 10:00am EST: Autogas Advantages & Fleet Options:
Join Clean Fuels Ohio and Roush CleanTech to learn about the latest options and opportunities for Autogas powered fleet operations. Log on to learn about the following topics:
- The range of available low-cost propane vehicle and station options and their operational, economic and environmental benefits for fleets today.
- New Autogas engines that produce NOx and particulate emissions well below strict federal standards – the same standards that new diesels don’t meet, based on in-use testing results.
- New, specially designed Autogas nozzles make the refueling process as user friendly as any liquid fuel without the smell or environmental hazard. These innovations open opportunities for public commercial refueling stations to extend driving ranges.
- Renewable propane that provides greater environmental benefits with zero differences operationally and at comparable costs. Now, some propane suppliers have built the production and logistical capabilities to deliver renewable propane to fleet markets in the Midwest.
Propane Autogas vehicle technology is mature, proven, and reliable across a range of light to medium-duty platforms. Still, the industry continues to develop with innovations that achieve greater efficiencies and power, all while continuing to utilize cleaner domestic propane Autogas to save fleet operators money and improve performance. This webinar will provide fleet managers with the information they need to make the transition to propane Autogas and maximize the economic and environmental advantages of the fuel.
