Autogas industry keeps growing in the U.S.
Alliance AutoGas and Roush CleanTech, two major companies in the Autogas industry, have reviewed the current state of the market and initiatives in progress. Earlier this year, both firms launched some products and projects at the Work Truck Show in Indiana.
Stuart Weidie, president of Alliance AutoGas, and Todd Mouw, president of Roush CleanTech, agree the fuel can provide significant operational cost and environmental benefits to those who adopt it. “I just love the story we have – the versatility of the fuel, whether it’s transporting kids, water, serving LAX airport or delivering mail for the U.S. Postal Service,” said Mouw, recounting recent Roush efforts to fuel fleet vehicles across industries.
In addition to transit agencies, school districts, mail carriers and other class 4-7 fleets, the industry also wants to convert LPG industry’s vehicles. While opportunities exist for LPG marketers to fuel commercial fleet vehicles, Weidie is sharpening Alliance AutoGas’ focus to help the industry transition its own vehicles to operate on Autogas. “Whatever we can do to enable and support our industry members to get vehicles running on LPG, we are there to do that,” Weidie says.
Moreover, they are working with state LPG associations to inform them of the Autogas-related offerings available to their respective members, as well as to install conversion and service centres in strategic locations. As of May, Alliance AutoGas was working with about 10 states whose members have expressed an interest in Autogas, particularly for service and manager vehicles.
Building the industry’s confidence in Autogas is a means to growing the market – and a fundamental step that must be taken now, according to these industry experts. For more information, please visit this link.
