Propane the proven alternative fuel for fleets
Millions of vehicles today are fueled with propane, it is the second most-widely used clean fuel after natural gas. Propane autogas, also called liquid petroleum gas (LPG), is the leading environmentally-friendly fuel in the U.S. Because LPG is a mixture of light hydrocarbons, it significantly reduces greenhouse gases and pollution. With an established, low-cost fueling structure, propane is a proven alternative for fleets to meet corporate “green” initiatives and reduce vehicle cost of ownership.
Propane fuel helps meet fleet vehicle sustainability goals by improving environmental outcomes, low-cost fueling infrastructures and reducing the total cost of ownership of the fleet vehicle.
