      Natural gas, propane, battery electric, and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles, the four sustainable vehicle technology platforms covered in the study, are all growing in terms of vehicle sales, fuel sales, and investment. equipping fleet managers with critical insights they need to plan for operations in a lower-emission world,” said.   The Mississippi Propane Gas Association (MPGA) recently commissioned a study conducted by the Stennis Institute at Mississippi State University that found propane autogas offers “numerous benefits” as a fleet fuel versus gasoline and diesel. The study also looked at the challenges fleet managers might encounter when considering autogas.

    Propane may be a viable option for certain fleets looking for an alternative fuel source. While converting a vehicle to a propane system comes with a high initial cost, the system may come with reduced lifecycle costs over the course of that vehicle's life.

    Natural Gas. Program Overview. Funding is available for natural gas and propane vehicles through the ALT Fuels Colorado Vehicle Program to help public and private fleets achieve clean, cost effective, and efficient operations. The program has helped many public, non-profit, and private fleets in Colorado’s ozone non attainment area and carbon monoxide maintenance areas to transition their. That’s according to a new study of fleet use of sustainable vehicle platforms for medium- and heavy-duty fleets, such as natural gas, propane, electric, and renewable fuels.

VEHICULAR FLEET OPERATION ON NATURAL GAS AND PROPANE: AN OVERVIEW by Dean B. Taylor Hani Mahmassani Mark A. Euritt Research Report SF Research Project / Conversion of the SDHPT Automotive Fleet to Alternative Fuels conducted for the Texas Department of Transportation by the CENTER FOR TRANSPORTATION RESEARCH.

Propane & CNG Fleet Vehicle Protection. If a high-pressure CNG or Propane leak occurs while the vehicle is inside a parking or maintenance facility, the potential for a catastrophic fire or explosion involving the facility and all its contents – including the other vehicles parked there –.

Fleet Application for Delivery Services Vehicles. Vehicular fleet operation on natural gas and propane book transportation data and information about the delivery services vehicle application.

Fleets in niche markets operate vehicles designed to serve specific functions, which makes these vehicles ideal for the adoption of alternative fuels and advanced vehicle.

By transitioning the trucks within these fleets to Renewable Natural Gas provided by American Natural Gas and U.S. Gain, the brewer expects to reduce its emissions by more than 70% compared to conventional diesel – the equivalent of taking more than 66 thousand passenger cars off the road or planting more than 8 million new trees.

Texas Produced – 86% of propane production comes from natural gas processing with over 50% of all U.S.-consumed propane originating in Texas. When you include the state and federal rebates available for propane-powered vehicles and propane motor fuel use, it becomes clear that propane is the preferred alternative fuel choice for your fleet.

The Propane Autogas Advantage for Your Fleet. Taxis, school buses, limousine services, ambulances, delivery vehicles, and other light- to medium-duty fleets around the country are making the switch to propane autogas.

Whether they’re buying new vehicles or converting their old ones, smart owners and fleet managers are turning to propane autogas because.

Propane powered vehicles are growing in popularity within the United States and over 17 million globally. Propane AutoGas is the functional alternative fuel that represents a sustainable energy solution helping the environment. Today, municipalities, buses, taxis and private companies use propane to run their fleet vehicles.

Propane autogas has the power to transform your fleet. Businesses and government organizations of all sizes have discovered that propane autogas vehicles deliver the lowest total cost-of-ownership of any fuel. If you're looking to make an impact to your bottom line, explore the possibilities of propane autogas.

Vehicular natural gas (VNG) is the natural gas used in the automotive sector. It can be supplied as Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or asLiquefied Natural Gas (LNG). Advantages of vehicular natural gas: 85% reduction in nitrogen oxide emissions.

% reduction in sulphur oxide emissions. 95% reduction in suspended particulate emissions. 24% reduction in CO2 emissions.

So, even with lower than average gas prices and assuming they stay this low all year, if San Diego were to convert 5% of their 3, fleet vehicles to run on propane, and assuming the average fuel economy of a US light duty fleet vehicle is mpg, and the average light duty city fleet vehicle trav miles per year, San Diego would.

The new guidelines for N a liquefied petroleum gas code, specifies that the propane industry will adopt the K15 connection for all future autogas vehicles reinstated into service, purchased, or converted after Jan.

1,according to Alliance AutoGas. Louis, MO (Aug ) – As part of its ongoing commitment to sustainable logistics and reducing carbon emissions, Anheuser-Busch announced today that it is transitioning more than trucks – representing approximately 30% of its dedicated fleet – to Renewable Natural Gas (RNG).

In andAnheuser-Busch converted diesel-fueled trucks in Houston and St. Louis to. Natural gas; and; Propane (liquefied petroleum gas). In addition, the National Defense Authorization Act of expanded the definition of an alternative fuel vehicle to include: Any vehicle achieving a significant reduction in petroleum consumption; Advanced lean burn technology vehicles; Fuel cell vehicles; and; Hybrid electric vehicles.

The new report offers insights into the adoption of alternative fuels for a variety of fleet segments. Graphic: The State of Sustainable Fleets report Fleet investment in natural gas, propane, battery electric, and hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles have all grown in terms of vehicle.

Quick, Safe and Affordable After 76 years and three generations of being in the propane business, Blue Star Gas joined the Alliance AutoGas network in as the primary autogas dealer for the West Coast. The network consists of a group of companies that form a chain of propane autogas vehicle conversions, on-site fueling infrastructure, fuel supply, and ongoing technical support.

Vehicle Identification The GMC Savana and Chevrolet Express are full-sized cargo vans used as fleet vehicles that contain low-emissions compressed natural gas (CNG), and are identified with CNG labels on the exterior and interior of the vehicle.

The CNG labels on the exterior of the vehicle are located. This presents the biggest hurdle in terms of total cost of ownership for a fleet considering a conversion to propane. The cost to convert a vehicle to accept propane autogas ranges between $6, and $12, according to the U.S.

Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy. Anecdotally, propane vehicles fare well in the used vehicle market, Perkins says, and fleet operators are not afraid to drive those vehicles to the point where resale value is no longer an issue.

Black Book will no doubt be onboard when the volumes increase, yet for the meantime, a lack of published wholesale values is a barrier to greater implementation. Improving Vehicle Cost-Effectiveness & Environmental Performance such as electric, natural gas, propane Autogas, biofuels and others might fit operationally and which, if any, offer a return on investment over defined periods of time.

We project impacts of various choices on the health and environmental impact of fleet operations so you. vehicular use of natural gas.

TxDOT vehicles are not exempt from this tax, and they must also pay state gasoline and diesel taxes. Currently, TxDOT vehicles are exempt from federal gasoline and diesel taxes, and there is no federal tax on natural gas use for vehicles.

Fleet conversions also generate some nonmonetary costs and benefits. Home natural gas is delivered at about psi, but natural gas in vehicles needs to be pressurized to psi.

So if you want to use CNG in your car, you'll need a compressor.The MRP Motor Vehicle Fleet Management Manual has been organized to provide for Natural gas and liquid fuels domestically produced from natural gas Propane The LFPC is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Fleet Charge Card Program.
