Autogas or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) when it is used as a fuel for vehicles is produced domestically, costs less than gasoline per gallon, and does not rob a car of its performance like other alternative fuels. It also burns cleaner than gasoline, leaving a smaller carbon footprint. With gasoline prices constantly on the rise, focus has been put on alternative fuels like never before. One low-profile alternative fuel is propane autogas. Propane is a naturally occurring byproduct of domestic oil refining and natural gas processing. It is 270 times more compact as a liquid than as a gas, making propane highly economical to store and transport.
Worldwide there are more than 15 million vehicles using propane autogas, making it the third most common engine fuel behind gasoline and diesel fuel. Using American-produced fuel to power fleets is a great way to go green and reduce our dependency on foreign oil.
