Autogas is a solution for fleet owners looking to move to an environmentally responsible, alternative fuel. Propane, used as an on-road vehicle fuel is called autogas. Autogas is an affordable option that is a tool for the low-carbon future making a good fuel match to fleets. And this October, there is an opportunity to learn more about autogas and individuals that have already made the change to Autogas for their fleets.
When considering making a transition to Autogas or any alternative fuel, fleet owners need to determine the best energy source to meet their organization’s needs. Factors for consideration are the fuel emissions profile and the costs required to install refueling or recharging infrastructure, the performance of the new vehicles, and the availability of the energy source.
Thanks to emerging propane autogas technology, propane autogas is delivering near-zero emissions for its customers. Ultra-low NOx propane engines are 90% cleaner than current standards mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
In recent years, electric vehicles’ popularity has increased because the technology is perceived as clean and green with zero emissions. However, it is important to note that emissions may be created by the source of electric power generation.
Propane autogas is a domestically produced, American-made fuel that is readily available. Engine vehicle technology innovation has ramped up in the last decade and is currently providing fleets with reliable performance
By keeping these considerations in mind and making fact-based comparisons, fleet owners are more likely to make an informed and educated decision on the best alternative for their needs.
