Transportation and Fleets

Propane (Liquefied Petroleum Gas -LPG) has been used worldwide for decades as an alternative fuel for vehicle applications. Using propane as a vehicle fuel provides economic benefits, enhances the overall health of our environment, improves performance and increases domestic energy security. 

▪ Economics – propane is domestically produced, offering lower fuel costs to large fleets in addition to lower engine maintenance costs

▪ Environment – propane has significantly lower carbon emissions than gasoline or diesel fuel, well below current standards for on-road vehicles

▪ Energy Security – the U.S. is a net exporter of propane and the huge reserves are expected to provide a secure, domestic supply of energy for decades to come
