We set up autogas tanks and an autogas filling station right at your site, too! These filling stations work almost exactly like a gasoline filling station and are surprisingly affordable to install.

How Autogas Saves You Money

If you own a business or are in charge of vehicle fleets for a municipality or school district, it all boils down to the bottom line. And that is where autogas prevails.

For starters, autogas costs less per gallon than diesel fuels or gasoline. Then you throw in incentives, grants, loans, tax credits, and more that you may earn by converting your vehicles to autogas, and the savings get bigger.

A traditional diesel vehicle costs four times as much per mile to operate than Autogas!

A big way autogas saves you money is the maintenance of your existing vehicles themselves. Autogas is incredibly clean-burning, so it causes less wear on your vehicles’ engines. The cost of maintenance, such as oil and filter changes, is decreased. And vehicles that run on autogas have been proven on average to last much longer than their gasoline counterparts, giving you a better return on your investment.

Autogas also makes managing a vehicle fleet more efficient. Your vehicles fuel up at your on-site filling station. You no longer have to keep records and receipts from fill-ups at different gas stations. Fuel theft is also virtually eliminated with autogas.

You also don’t have to worry about cleaning up any accidental fuel spills. Autogas does not harm the air, water, or soil in the rare event of a leak.

What Kind Of Vehicles Can Use Autogas?

All kinds of vehicles! Here are some examples:

Autogas vehicles start easily, so you don’t have to have them idling long to get them warmed up.
One reason businesses, municipalities, and school districts are converting their fleet vehicles to autogas is that it creates dramatically fewer emissions than diesel or gasoline.

Exhaust from autogas creates up to 70% fewer smog-producing hydrocarbons than gasoline or diesel. Compared to gasoline, propane yields 12% less carbon dioxide, about 20% less nitrogen oxide, and up to 60% less carbon monoxide.
