Propane autogas is the most widely used alternative fuel in the world. The cost of getting fleets operating on autogas—including infrastructure, vehicle conversions and/or the purchase of OEM vehicles—is much less than for other alternative fuels. Vehicles running on autogas experience substantially reduced emissions and will save more than $1 per gallon versus gasoline-fueled vehicles. Additionally, utilizing autogas helps lessen our addiction to foreign oil: 90 percent of the U.S. autogas supply is made-in-America.
