AUSTIN, TX, May 28, 2013 (Marketwired via COMTEX) -- Propane Autogas: Fueling Texas, the Propane Council of Texas' educational campaign, made an impression at the Police Fleet Expo Southwest. From May 22-24, hundreds of police officers gathered in Fort Worth to discuss the most efficient and innovative ways to manage vehicle fleets -- including converting to propane autogas, the world's most popular alternative fuel.
The Fueling Texas presence at the Police Fleet Expo included volunteers, educational materials, video presentations and a propane-powered Ford F-150 provided by Northwest Propane. Law enforcement officers had a chance to get up close and personal with the F-150, examining its bi-fuel system and asking questions about the benefits of propane autogas. Ford has announced that the 2013 F-150 will be available in special police, fire and rescue packages.
Law enforcement fleets that switch to propane autogas save 30-50 percent on fuel costs. Autogas's high octane rating means fleets spend less on maintenance costs and vehicle engines last longer -- all without sacrificing the performance and range law enforcement officers depend on. Autogas vehicles also produce fewer harmful emissions, contributing to cleaner air in the communities officers proudly serve.
