Operating Costs: Reduced
Propane autogas vehicles can potentially extend engine life and reduce maintenance costs compared to gasoline vehicles. Propane’s higher octane rating and lower carbon and oil contamination rate not only helps you to save our ‘green’ environment, but saves you ‘green’ at the bank, too. Check out this Savings Calculator that lets you know how much you could save by switching to propane today.
As little as one gallon of spilled gasoline can quickly contaminate groundwater above drinking water health advisory levels. Propane, on the other hand, is not a groundwater contaminant. Fueling with nontoxic propane autogas means operating on a safer, cleaner fuel that produces:
- 20 percent less nitrogen oxide
- 60 percent less carbon monoxide
- Up to 24 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions
- Fewer particulate emissions
