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.
