Propane Autogas is a viable, cost-effective alternative fuel for all types of vehicles, including cars, trucks and vans. Propane (liquefied petroleum gas) is referred to as Autogas when used as a motor fuel.
You can convert your fleet to Propane Autogas to save substantially on your fuel bills, one of the largest costs of any commercial business with vehicles on the road.
In fact, thousands of school buses, taxi fleets and commercial van fleets are already economically fueled by Autogas, saving on average $1.25 per gallon compared with regular unleaded gasoline. Conversion costs are much less expensive, compared with other alternative fuels.
Plus, using Propane Autogas substantially reduces harmful emissions and is almost entirely American-made.

Propane Autogas is:
- A green, clean-burning, reliable alternative fuel
- Less expensive than gasoline or diesel
- Intrinsically safer to use than many other fuels
- Is manufactured primarily (more than 90 percent of the worldwide supply) in the United States
- An alternative energy source that is available now for use nationwide
While there are more than 17 million Autogas-powered vehicles globally, the U.S is far behind other countries in adopting Autogas. What are you waiting for?
Key Cost Savings
Lower Fuel Costs – Historically, AutoGas costs significantly less than gasoline or diesel, averaging $1.25 less per gallon than regular unleaded gasoline.
Reduced Maintenance – Vehicles operating on Autogas require less frequent maintenance, meaning fewer oil changes, extended engine life and reduced vehicle downtime.
Alternative Fuels Comparison
Compared with other alternative fuels:
- The cost of infrastructure implementation for an AutoGas fueling station is substantially less
- For fleets interested in converting existing vehicles, the cost of AutoGas conversion is much less expensive
Safe, Proven, Growing Use
Autogas is a safe, proven alternative fuel. Thousands of school buses, taxicabs and van fleets across the U.S. are already safely fueled by Autogas.
- Autogas tanks are 20 times more puncture-resistant than gasoline tanks and can withstand four times the pressure when compared to conventional gasoline vehicle fuel tanks
- Autogas will only burn with a fuel-to-air ratio between 2.1 and 10.1 percent and will rapidly dissipate beyond its flammability range in the open atmosphere, making ignition unlikely
- Unlike gasoline, diesel, methanol and ethanol, Autogas is nontoxic, nonpoisonous and is insoluble in water
- Should a rare accidental release of Autogas occur, Autogas dissipates into the atmosphere with no harmful contaminants released into the air, soil or water
- Autogas substantially reduces vehicle carbon emissions without sacrificing performance
Autogas is cleaner burning than traditional fuel by every measure:
- Autogas exhaust creates 60 to 70 percent less smog-producing hydrocarbons than gasoline (Southwest Research Institute).
- Compared with gasoline, Autogas yields 12 percent less carbon dioxide, about 20 percent less nitrous oxide, and as much as 60 percent less carbon monoxide (World Liquid Propane Gas Association, January 2003; California Energy Commission, January 2003).
- Autogas cuts emissions of toxins and carcinogens like benzene and toluene by up to 96 percent compared with gasoline (Southwest Research Institute).
- Autogas’ octane rating is 104, while premium grade gasoline’s is only 91 to 92. This higher rating allows for a higher compression ratio in the engine and greater engine efficiency, leading to significant reductions in exhaust emissions like carbon monoxide.
