Propane autogas is providing fleets across the United States with an economical alternative to gasoline. With lower fuel and operating costs, making the switch to autogas can give your business a great advantage.
Converting to propane autogas helps fleets run more efficiently, reducing costs per mile in the process.
Propane is more protected from the price fluctuations and spikes that conventional fuels experience and historically costs less, too. On a mile-by-mile basis, autogas typically costs less than gasoline – meaning propane-powered fleets save an average of $1.50 per gallon on fuel costs.
Propane Autogas Savings
Because autogas is a clean-burning fuel with reduced emissions, propane-powered fleets experience:
- Longer engine life due to less carbon buildup
- Less frequent oil changes and routine maintenance
- Less vehicle downtime and more time on the road
In addition to the reduced fuel costs, there are also a few fuel incentives and rewards on the federal, municipal, and state level that can help fleet operators save even more. You can learn more about federal, state and local tax exemptions along with laws and regulations at the Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC) website.
The Affordable Alternative
Conversion costs vary depending on the type of vehicle, conversion system used and fuel tank size. For example, bi-fuel aftermarket systems can cost in the range of $5,000-$6,500 (including installation), while OEM equipped vehicles from Ford/ROUSH cost about $10,000 for the system.
Due to its low fuel costs and the increased engine life propane-powered vehicles experience, fleet directors are capable to more than pay for the cost of conversion over the life of the vehicle.
