High Performing On-road Vehicles Fueled By Propane Autogas
Propane autogas is the leading alternative fuel in the United States and the nation’s third most common vehicle fuel after gasoline and diesel. Propane autogas fuels more than 270,000 on-road vehicles in the United States, according to the Energy Department, and more than 15 million vehicles worldwide.
On average, propane autogas vehicles reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 17 percent and create 20 percent less nitrogen oxide, up to 60 percent less carbon monoxide, and fewer particulate emissions, compared with gasoline. Propane autogas burns cleaner in engines than gasoline and diesel, which results in longer engine life and reduced maintenance costs.
Fleet managers can easily refuel vehicles fueled by propane autogas by installing on-site refueling infrastructure or by visiting one of thousands of propane autogas refueling stations across the United States.
