U.S. LPG industry unveils new webpage to boost Autogas adoption in delivery trucks

The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) has launched a new webpage dedicated to educating delivery fleets on the ways Autogas can help fleet owners with their service and sustainability.

On the new webpage, visitors will find a variety of resources, infographics, case studies, and videos detailing how to get started with Autogas, the benefits of the energy source, and examples from their peers. Notably, the site outlines the emissions reductions and cost benefits that allow delivery fleets to accelerate decarbonisation while saving money.

“Delivery fleets face unique challenges to balance business efficiency and sustainability goals. With Autogas, it’s no longer a balancing act. Fleets can easily achieve both,” said Steve Whaley, Director of Autogas Business Development at PERC. “Today’s Autogas engines are 90% cleaner than EPA standards. The engines provide delivery fleets with clean operation without sacrificing on range, performance, and reliability—all while lowering their operating costs. It’s a win for the fleet’s financial sustainability and for environmental sustainability.”

On the webpage, fleet owners can access a free, downloadable brochure detailing real-world data and testimonials from fleets across the country. As the examples show, many fleet owners save up to 60% on costs compared to diesel by transitioning to LPG. They also reduce carbon emissions by several metric tonnes over the life of the vehicle.

More than 60,000 Autogas commercial vehicles are on the road today, including fleets that serve a range of delivery needs. It is widely used in both urban and rural communities, allowing fleets to run routes over 300 miles on a single refuel. With affordable and customisable infrastructure, fleet owners can work with their LPG supplier to develop an Autogas solution specific to their fleet.
