Propane autogas is not an alternative fuel of the future; it’s a clean, domestically produced, cost-effective choice for right here, right now. At a workshop sponsored by the Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition on Wednesday at the Bessemer campus of Lawson State Community College, early adopters of propane for powering fleets of school buses, delivery and service vans and other commercial vehicles shared their experiences – plus facts and figures – on how converting from gasoline and diesel to cleaner propane autogas saves money and, because it is so much cleaner-burning, is better for the environment.

“We had a great turnout and our speakers and panelists provided a lot of important and actionable information to fleet managers, government officials and members of the public who have an interest in saving money while also helping decrease America’s dependence on foreign oil,” said ACFC Executive Director Mark Bentley. “People like Greg Zilberfarb of the Propane Education and Research Council, Casey Foster from Birmingham City Schools, Russell Lawrence from Tuscaloosa Transit Authority and Andy Farquhar from the Alabama Department of Corrections have years of experience in using propane-powered vehicles and we were thrilled to have them share their experiences here today.” Read the full article here.
