Propane Power For Pickups: Fueling Stations
Why infrastructure isn’t your biggest barrier to alternative fuels; Refueling on the road is now easier than ever.
Once a contractor has decided on the right propane autogas vehicle for their operations, the crucial question becomes “How will I refuel?” For many contractors, this important question is often a barrier when it comes to adopting alternative fuels.
Tucker Perkins, chief business development officer for the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), says that’s the first concern he addresses when speaking with contractors or new adopters.
“Propane is the most widely available alternative fuel in the U.S. right now, and more than 17 million vehicles in the world operate on propane autogas,” Perkins says.
“There are more refueling stations in the U.S. with propane than any other alternative fuel. That’s in large part because propane refueling stations are incredibly affordable and easy to install and operate.” Read more here.
