El Milagro (www.el-milagro.com) is a tortilla products manufacturer based in Chicago, IL. The 64-year-old, family-owned company produces corn and flour tortillas, tostadas, chips and taco shells. Its fleet of delivery vans transports products from its corn and flour manufacturing facilities in Chicago to customers in surrounding suburbs and north to Milwaukee, WI.
In total, El Milagro operates approximately 80 vehicles at its locations in Illinois, Georgia and Texas. Its 55-vehicle Chicago fleet has operated on propane autogas since 1998.
El Milagro is a long-time user of propane autogas. It first decided to try alternative fuels after the city of Chicago implemented new emissions standards in the late 1990s. At the time, El Milagro hired a third-party retrofitter to install a conversion kit on one of its gas-powered Isuzu Trucks (www.isuzucv.com).
