A growing number of delivery fleets are turning to propane autogas in order to accelerate decarbonization — and discovering additional cost-saving opportunities in the process.
Across the nation, delivery fleets of all sizes are searching for effective strategies to reduce emissions, not only because of public pressure but from increasingly strict local and federal regulations as well. With propane autogas, they can significantly reduce their emissions while saving on operation and energy costs — and do it without compromising on reliability, range, or performance.
"Propane autogas reduces greenhouse gas emissions and has easy, cost-efficient fueling infrastructure. Because of our success in Kansas, we implemented the same propane autogas vehicles in the Sacramento and Fresno areas.” Banny Allison, Fleet Services Manager, AmeriPride Services
How Propane Autogas Drives Success
LOWEST TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP
Conventional fuels deliver conventional results: volatile fuel prices, complicated maintenance, and higher emissions rates. With propane autogas, your fleet saves money on fuel and maintenance spending while also lowering harmful emissions.

More than 60,000 propane autogas vehicles are on the road today, including fleets that serve a range os daily delivery needs. Propane autogas is a widely used alternative in urban and rural communities alike, allowing fleets reliable access to fuel to run routes without having to worry about recharging or range restrictions.
Propane infrastructure options — including permanent, temporary, and mobile refueling solution options — are adaptable to the needs of your fleet. Local propane suppliers can help develop detailed specifications, including traffic flow and garaging requirements. Propane autogas allows for more installation flexibility. In fact, the EPA classifies propane autogas as a non-contaminant of air, land, and water, meaning infrastructure can be installed in areas where other fuels cannot.
Transitioning to propane autogas is virtually seamless for maintenance crews. Other alternative fuels can require facilities to be modified with additional gas detection or ventilation equipment, costing you more money to make the switch. With propane autogas, you likely won’t need to modify your maintenance and garaging facilities, if your existing buildings are code compliant for diesel and gasoline. Make sure to check with your local authority having jurisdiction to make sure you are in compliance for your location.
Today’s engines are 90% cleaner than mandated EPA standards, with effectively zero particulate matter emissions. The latest propane autogas engine technology is classified as near-zero and has moved the fuel even closer to achieving zero emissions levels.
