autogas port jervis, ny Keeping fleet vehicles like cars, buses, vans, shuttles and trucks fueled is a demanding job that costs time, effort and, of course, money. But propane autogas makes fleet fueling much easier than gasoline or diesel – and also much cheaper, so long as you’re working with an expert autogas supplier you can trust. Read on to learn more about how you can save big with propane autogas in Monroe, Newburgh and Warwick, NY.

Ways to save with propane autogas

A.C. Howell can help you get the benefits of autogas, providing expert and safe propane delivery that saves you money every step of the way. How? Propane autogas costs companies less in the long run, since it helps you:

  • Save big, dollar to dollar: Autogas costs less per gallon than diesel fuels or gasoline. Add in incentives, grants, loans, tax credits and more that you may earn by converting your vehicles to autogas, and the savings get bigger. A diesel vehicle costs four times as much per mile to operate than autogas.
  • Avoid expensive disasters: Fueling your fleet on-site with autogas is safer and cleaner than gasoline or diesel, and you don’t have to worry about spills and the damage and potentially costly cleanup that result.
  • Dramatically reduce fuel theft: Rising gasoline prices mean an increase in fuel theft. Propane can’t be siphoned away like gasoline can, though.
  • Streamline your bookkeeping: With an autogas dispensing location, managing your fleet’s fuel costs is a more straightforward process, as you no longer have to deal with receipts and reimbursements. That means fewer staff paid to manage the process and fewer hours spent on recordkeeping.
  • Reduce vehicle maintenance and repair costs: Vehicles that run on autogas have less wear and tear, letting you save on costs over time.
  • Lower the costs to taxpayers: All those advantages apply to municipal vehicles such as police cars, trucks, school buses and vans. Also, you are saving money for your community while reducing air pollution.
  • Gain the competitive edge by going green: Vehicles powered by autogas have dramatically fewer greenhouse gas emissions than vehicles that run on diesel or gasoline. Autogas produces 20% less carbon monoxide, 40% fewer nitrogen oxides and 10% less carbon dioxide than diesel or gasoline. Using autogas can give you a competitive edge with customers who are environmentally conscious.
  • Stay on the road, year-round: You’ll discover another benefit of autogas when winter arrives. Autogas vehicles start faster and easier in the cold than gasoline or diesel vehicles. If temperatures plummet, diesel vehicles are at risk of gelling. They’ll be stuck in the parking lot, idled, while your autogas vehicles are out on the road.
