Propane AutoGas Road Show

AmeriGas Propane was a sponsor and presenter at the Propane Road Show held in New Orleans on Thursday October 25th, hosted by the Southeast Louisiana Clean Fuels Partnership and the Southeast Propane Autogas Development Program. Troy Hicks, AmeriGas’s regional alternative fuels Metro Lawn specialist, provided fleet managers, operators, mechanics and drivers an opportunity to learn about propane autogas.

Propane is a clean alternative fuel that is powering fleets across the U.S. and saving fleets money on operational costs. In addition to informational technical presentations on propane as a transportation fuel, fleet operators currently using propane discussed their propane use experience, and vehicles were on display and for test drives.
