Frequently Asked Questions

What types of light-duty vehicles can be powered by propane?

Propane can power light-duty vehicles of all kinds, including construction vehicles, taxicabs, law enforcement cruisers, and other governmental organization vehicles.

Will switching to propane autogas lower my operating costs?

Yes. Propane autogas offers the lowest total cost-of-ownership of any fuel source. Propane autogas vehicles save more money from purchase to retirement of the asset due to lower fuel costs, reduced maintenance time and costs, and no need to purchase additional fluids or filters to keep the vehicles running in top shape.

How do I refuel my propane autogas vehicles?

There are four affordable, flexible refueling options dependent on your fleets’ size, routes, and budget. Fleets can choose private, on-site refueling infrastructure scaled for their needs, or take advantage of flexible public or private refueling networks.

Can I convert my current fleet from gas to propane without purchasing new vehicles?

Yes. There are a large number of certified propane autogas conversion kits. The upfront costs to convert fleet vehicles to propane can be offset by the low operating and maintenance costs over the lifespan of the vehicles and, in some states, by tax credits or grants. Talk with your propane supplier about vehicle conversion options.

Can propane autogas help me meet emissions mandates?

Yes. Propane autogas light-duty vehicles reduce NOx emissions by 36 percent compared to diesel vehicles.

Would I need to upgrade my maintenance garage to accommodate propane autogas vehicles?

The requirements for a propane autogas vehicle repair facility are generally the same as those for conventionally fueled vehicles, making the switch from conventional fuel to propane autogas quick and cost-effective. Other alternative fuels, however, may require different facility requirements than conventional fuels, like additional gas detection and ventilation equipment — costing fleets more money to switch. Contact your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) for applicable codes regarding building or modifying a propane autogas-powered vehicle repair or maintenance facility.
