Propane to Power Your Vehicle

There have been some great news articles (and posts on our blog!) about propane autogas lately. One additional piece that came out recently was in and is titled 7 Alternative Fueling Infrastructure Pitfalls and How Propane Can Help. Here are seven things fleet managers should be cognizant about when thinking about propane among their alternative fuel programs (and it’s also just good advice in general).

Potential Pitfalls

1. Looking at Fuel Savings Alone and Failing to Look at Total Upfront Costs. In fact, one CNG station costs as much as 15 or more propane stations.

2. Failing to Think of Total Energy and Power Costs. Propane autogas refueling stations use the same amount of electricity as gas or diesel ones. However, CNG compressors require higher amounts of electricity, increasing the overall price.

3. Failing to Think About Limitations on Infrastructure. As we know, propane distribution (getting the amount of gas needed to the station) can be scaled very easily and can grow as a company or fueling station grows. This is not always the case with other alternative fuel infrastructure.

4. Relying Too Heavily On Government Grants. Propane has proven itself as a green, cost-effective source of energy that exists absent government subsidies. The cost-benefit analysis of propane is in many ways made better in the long-term because of this clearer picture.

5. Not Thinking About the Technical Needs of Customers. When choosing between alternative fuels, propane is dispensed at a fast rate similar to gas or diesel. With CNG this isn’t always the case, potentially leading to vehicle downtime. Also, propane fits with most fleet data management (card-reading) systems already.

6. Not Thinking Through Site Preparation. Propane autogas stations are much more straightforward in terms of site preparation and permits. This can help get projects up and running faster and minimize potential hurdles.

7. Failing to Think About Other Important Costs. Using CNG for alternative fuel needs can require specialized garages, gas detection devices, and other lifecycle costs. Propane autogas requires a minimal amount compared to these costs.

Propane powered vehicles are growing in popularity with 300,000 in the United States and over 17 million globally! Propane autogas is the functional alternative fuel that represents a sustainable energy solution helping the environment and reducing our dependence on foreign oil.
