Savings with Autogas



Historically, propane autogas costs about $1.00 less per gallon than gasoline and diesel, providing autogas fleets substantial fuel-cost savings.


Since autogas is a cleaner-burning fuel than gasoline or diesel, propane autogas vehicles require fewer oil changes, meaning reduced maintenance costs and less service downtime. Propane autogas vehicles also have increased engine life due to autogas’ higher octane rating.


Compared to other alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicle options:

• The cost of implementing autogas fueling infrastructure is significantly lower

• Reasonably priced autogas OEM and aftermarket conversion options are available


Some municipal and state tax credits are also available to help fleets transition to cleaner-burning, domestically produced propane autogas. More info
