How Propane Can Transform Your Commercial Fleet

fuel conversion north carolinaFleet managers look for every advantage when it comes to making decisions for their business, knowing that the difference between being profitable and breaking even (or worse) often comes down to the choices they make before the rubber even hits the road.

That’s why many fleet managers these days are turning to propane autogas.

On average, autogas costs about 50 percent less than its equivalent of gasoline. But that’s only part of the advantage that comes with converting your fleet to propane.

Autogas also burns much more cleanly than gasoline or diesel, which brings two benefits: For one, you’ll spend less money on maintenance over the course of your vehicle’s lifespan. For another, your fleet will stay on the road making money rather than on a lift making you pay for more vehicle repairs.

Cleaner fuel also means your fleet will be more eco-friendly – a potentially great marketing differentiator for your business. In fact, burning autogas rather than gasoline or diesel will cut emissions of smog-producing hydrocarbons by 70 percent, carbon dioxide emissions by 12 percent, nitrogen oxide emissions by 20 percent, and carbon monoxide emissions by 60 percent.

Need more reasons to switch to propane? How about these: It will start in any weather without assistance from engine block heaters or glow plugs, and it can be used for light-duty equipment like forklifts and commercial mowers. If you need a filling station installed on your site, that’s easy to do for qualified propane technicians.

The Future Of Fleet Fueling Is Here

From school buses and national park vehicles to police cars, more than 200,000 vehicles in the U.S. alone are powered by propane today. Worldwide, propane has been keeping vehicles on the road for decades and enjoys one of the industry’s best safety records.
