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

With over 70 years of experience, Manchester Tank has been a global leader in the design and manufacture of cylinders, tanks and equipment used in propane powered vehicles and equipment. Our diverse line of stock tanks includes a selection of mower, forklift, buffer and marine cylinders for horizontal and vertical service. 

With Manchester Tank’s help, fleet operators are saving money and getting a quick return on their investment, helping the environment by reducing their carbon footprint and promoting the use of a domestically-produced energy source.
