Propane gas has been a commercial engine fuel for over 80 years powering more than 4 million vehicles across the world. Propane is the third most popular engine fuel after gasoline & diesel fuel. Propane is clean, cost effective, safe and a reliable alternative fuel.
Clean Alternative Fuel: Going Green!
- Of all alternative fuels available, propane offers the best mix of durability, performance and driving range.
- Clean burning: Many fleet owners report on the average, an extended 3 years service life and extended service intervals between required maintenance. Engines can last 2 times longer than gasoline engines and spark plugs from a propane powered vehicle last from 80,000 t0 100,000 miles.
- Propane vehicles have the longest driving range of all clean-burning fuels.
- Bi-Fuel Ability: Today’s conversion kits allow fuel injected engines to run on either propane gas or gasoline extending your driving range if away from your home supply area. No adjustments are needed, simply flip a dashboard switch and chose your fuel to run on.

Economics: SAVE 50-70% on Gasoline or Diesel costs!
Propane gas has an extensive price & tax advantage over gasoline today. Many fleet owners can expect to save 50-70% on annual fuel expenditures over gasoline. In addition to the savings on the cost of fuel, there are both federal and state tax incentives for conversions to clean burning alternate fuels. These tax credits = big savings to you as the fleet owner.
