Propane is the most widely-used clean fuel globally, with more than 25 million vehicles operating worldwide. It makes a significant contribution to improved environmental outcomes in transportation, in both greenhouse abatement and reduced pollution levels.
Independent School District 15, headquartered in St. Francis, Minnesota, deployed 41 propane school buses in their 51-bus fleet. They’re saving $200,000 per year in operating costs, reducing their maintenance costs, and providing a better and cleaner experience for their drivers and students. Watch the video to learn more.
Improve your bottom line. A gallon of propane generally costs 40 percent less than a gallon of gasoline or diesel. Switching to propane can save fleets thousands of dollars annually over traditional gasoline or diesel fleets. In addition, switching to propane means no SCR or diesel particulate filters, lower maintenance costs, and less downtime.
Breathe easier. Compared to gasoline and diesel engines, propane produces less harmful greenhouse gas emissions. Propane shrinks your environmental footprint with 70 percent fewer smog-producing hydrocarbons, 50 percent less carbon monoxide, 20 percent less nitrogen oxide, and 12 percent less carbon dioxide.
Propane has the longest driving range of any alternative fuel option. Due to higher octane ratings and efficient combustion, propane exhibits outstanding performance.
Propane’s low working pressure, narrow flammability range, higher ignition temperature and rigorous testing make it a very safe alternative fuel.
Propane autogas has the most developed refueling infrastructure of all alternative fuels and the number of new stations is quickly expanding.
