For many businesses, the hustle and bustle of the holiday season means a lot of driving. From delivery trucks to taxis, all types of equipment help us carry the load at this time of year. All this driving adds up to one thing: spending a lot of money on fuel.
But there are a lot of vehicle fleets around Texas that saving big on fuel costs by using propane autogas instead of gasoline—and, at the same time, reducing their greenhouse gas emissions substantially. State and local governments, school districts, and many businesses are experiencing the benefits of propane autogas.
Propane autogas is an ideal vehicle fuel for many reasons. The fuel and fueling stations are affordable. “The fuel itself is significantly less expensive than gasoline for fleets, and there is a wide range of factory-direct and aftermarket conversions available,” said Jackie Mason, Education and Marketing Director for the Propane Council of Texas (ProCOT). “Autogas powers school buses, sedans, pickup trucks, vans, box trucks, and even off-road equipment like forklifts and commercial lawn care equipment.”
Propane autogas is an American-made alternative fuel. One hundred percent of our nation’s propane supply is now produced in the United States—and two thirds of that amount is produced in Texas. Texas is also home to the world’s largest propane storage facility in Mont Belvieu.
So, while the holiday season speeds past us in a whirlwind of gifts, gatherings and greenery, remember that your vehicle fleet could be saving a sleighful of money just by switching to propane autogas. Read more here.
