Today, propane is the number one alternative fuel for the automotive sector, powering more than 17 million vehicles in more than 38 countries. Learn more about how Ferrellgas propane can lower your operating costs with this safe, economical alternative.
- It’s affordable: Propane prices are cheaper on average than gasoline, and cleaner-burning fuel means less maintenance and lower cost of ownership. Many propane vehicle fleets have reported two-to-three years longer service life and extended intervals between required maintenances as compared to gasoline vehicles.
- It’s clean: Propane exhaust creates 60 to 70 percent less smog-producing hydrocarbons than gasoline (Southwest Research Institute). Take advantage of energy credits for additional cost savings by driving green.
- It’s economical: Propane vehicles have the longest driving range of any alternative fuel – more than 250 percent farther than compressed natural gas, about 60 percent farther than methanol, and 25 percent farther than ethanol.
- It’s domestic: More than 90 percent of all propane used in the United States is produced domestically, reducing our dependence on foreign fuel.
