Propane, referred to as autogas when used in internal combustion engines, is the leading alternative fuel in the nation and the third-most commonly used fuel across the globe, behind gasoline and diesel. Thanks in part to lower total cost of ownership, more and more fleet managers are choosing propane autogas to fuel their fleet. Even when conventional fuel prices are low, a vehicle’s additional costs — like fuel, fluids, filters, and repairs — can drain your fleet’s budget. Over your vehicle’s lifetime, propane autogas is proven to help you save money and clean up the air with notable reductions in emissions. In addition, you’ll pick from a wide range of certified OEM and aftermarket options and all vehicles deliver comparable, if not improved, horsepower, torque, and towing capacity when compared to gasoline or diesel fueled models.
Whether you are using propane autogas for your fleet vehicles or for retail sales, our dispensers and dispensing systems provide you with the infrastructure solutions you need for easy fueling. From a single fueling dispenser to a complete station installation, we can customize a package specifically for you, helping you choose the right refueling option based on fleet size, routes, budget, and facility space. And because propane autogas infrastructure is scalable, it can easily grow to meet your fleet’s needs. We can also help coordinate the conversion or purchase of your vehicles, ensuring a seamless transition to autogas.

We engineer and manufacture a wide range of certified turnkey propane autogas dispensers that are safe, secure and simple to use. Our full autogas catalog can be viewed here. We’ve sold more than 1,100 dispensers to customers across the U.S. and Canada. Our dispensers may be placed on a public or private fuel island with any other type of fuel dispenser, including gasoline, diesel and other alternative fuels. Our dispensing systems operate much like a gasoline pump, and have added safety features such as pull-away protection and heavy-duty steel construction. Plus, all dispensers are powder coated, providing an attractive exterior.

Propane Autogas Resources and Case Studies
Propane Autogas Vehicle Evacuation System
Our autogas evacuation pump easily removes propane (liquid propane and vapor pressure) from your autogas vehicles, safely leaving the autogas tank ready for maintenance and servicing. With our system, autogas can be transferred from the vehicle tank to another autogas vehicle or a separate propane storage tank. The biggest benefit of our system over others is that it is operated completely on air using a pneumatic pump, with no engine, electricity or switching of hoses. With no arcing devices needed, there is no possibility of ignition in the case of a propane leak. In addition, it is equipped with safety checks that only allow for propane flow when hoses are correctly connected. Read more about the system here and download an informational cut sheet here.
