We’re Proud to Support the Taxi, Limo, Paratransit Association

AmeriGas is proud to be a part of the Taxi, Limo, Paratransit Association (TLPA) for 2011-2012.  As the only propane supplier in the TLPA, we’re excited to support their members’ fuel programs and their efforts to move to environmentally friendly alternative fuels, like propane autogas.


Propane autogas has long been an alternative fuel of choice for taxicab fleets as the TLPA detailed in their report, Analysis of Alternative Fuels & Vehicles for Taxicab Fleets. The report includes a quote from Bill Shranko, Chief Operating Officer of Yellow Checker Star in Las Vegas, whose taxicab companies have used propane for over 25 years and have their own re-fueling station for 830 out of 850 taxis in their fleet:

One of the big benefits of propane is that the company has much lower maintenance costs as clean-burning propane usage greatly lessens the wear and tear on engines. Also, propane is readily available in the U.S. so there is no dependence on foreign oil and most importantly, Yellow-Checker-Star’s use of propane results in a savings of 1,000 tons of particulates and 1,000 tons of carbon monoxide from being released into the atmosphere each year.

Another TLPA member, Neal Nichols, Arlington, Virginia reports that he is experimenting with the introduction of a bi-fuel vehicle that operates on gasoline and propane:

The conversion costs approximately $4,000 per vehicle. Given the current cost of propane and the current $0.50 per gallon federal rebate for propane used as a motor fuel (due to expire 12/31/11 unless renewed), we estimate that a fleet conversion to this system will pay for itself in approximately 1.5 years. After that, if the costs remain proportional to gasoline as currently, and the federal rebate remains in place, then our fleet would save approximately $250,000 per year in fuel costs based on a 100-taxicab conversion.

If you have a fleet and are considering alternative fuels, contact AmeriGas for help in understanding the complexities and considerations of propane autogas technology and refueling systems.

    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how

    You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve written.
    In my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.
