Autogas For Fleets

Autogas is the most widely used alternative fuel in the world and is an ideal solution for fleets looking to reduce fuel costs and greenhouse gas emissions. Fleets can convert vehicles they currently operate, or purchase new vehicles with autogas systems.

So, what makes propane autogas such a great fuel for fleets? Autogas is a perfect alternative for fleets because fueling infrastructure can be implemented at the home base, eliminating trips to off-site fueling stations. Additionally, the price per gallon of propane autogas is generally about $1.00 less than that for gasoline and diesel, and autogas vehicles provide virtually the same power as gasoline vehicles. Fleets can also receive comprehensive driver and mechanic training.

• Passenger cars and SUVs such as taxicabs and law enforcement vehicles
• Light- and medium-duty pickups and vans
• School buses and shuttle buses
