Propane as an Alternative Fuel to Gasoline or Diesel
Alternative fuels are non-conventional materials or substances used to power vehicles or other engines. These do not include gasoline or diesel. According to the EPA, they are can be gaseous fuels like hydrogen, natural gas, and propane or derived from alcohols, vegetable oils or waste. Propane, specifically, is a byproduct of natural gas refining, although some can be produced in crude oil refining. Fleet owners and operators choose propane Autogas as their alternative fuel of choice because it’s cleaner for the environment, there is no sacrificing power or torque, it’s abundantly available, and it’s affordable.
