The Propane Autogas Roadshow Series was hosted by the Southeast Propane Autogas Development Program to bring information about propane autogas benefits and technology to fleets in the southeastern U.S. The roadshows featured presentations from propane autogas technology providers and gave fleet owners and drivers the opportunity to test-drive the vehicles.
Clean Cities Coalitions throughout the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic implemented the events in each state of the Program’s footprint.
Roadshows were a great opportunity for fleet owners and managers to learn more about a domestic fuel that reduces operating costs and vehicle emissions. It was also a good way for vehicle mechanics and enthusiasts to learn more about what’s under the hood of a propane autogas vehicle. Additionally, government officials and community members learned about what local organizations were doing to make a difference by making the switch from gasoline to propane autogas vehicles.
Roadshows were completed by the following Clean Cities coalitions:
