Propane Vehicle Conversion & Refueling for School Districts
Is your school district considering an alternative fuel solution to power your fleet of buses? Diesel engine exhaust is identified as a carcinogen by both the Environmental Protection Agency and the World Health Organization. Switching your fleet over to Propane Autogas is the smart choice to significantly improve your fleet’s emissions, save operating and fuel purchase costs vs. gasoline and diesel, and project the environmentally responsible image you want to communicate to the students and parents you serve.
Operating Propane Autogas Powered Buses Is a Win for Your District
- Propane produces 40% less smog-creating hydrocarbons than gasoline and 80% less than older model diesel buses.
- Propane Autogas improves engine oil life and increases time between maintenance intervals.
- Using propane reduces fuel costs per gallon and operating expenses per mile.
- Propane has an inexpensive refueling infrastructure with low maintenance and zero negative environmental impact potential.
- Propane Autogas is safer to operate than gasoline or diesel with 20 times more puncture-resistant tanks and a higher flashpoint, which makes it more difficult to ignite.
