Propane autogas fuel offers advantages for variety of fleet sizes


“We promote our ‘green’ trucks to the Austin community as an example of an environmentally responsible organization,” Kulp says. “Our Roush CleanTech vehicles are a part of that. I haven’t had any surprises with the vehicles. It’s a seamless system.”

“We can only benefit from more people converting to propane autogas,” Rudolph of INDOT adds. “This goes beyond saving the state and taxpayers money. It’s about using a domestic product that is made and used in the United States.”

Fleet managers interested in vehicles fueled by propane autogas should contact their fleet dealers or vehicle manufacturers. For more information about PERC and vehicles fueled by propane autogas, visit www.autogasusa.org, or contact local propane autogas providers.
