US propane industry promotes new service network tool for Autogas fleets

To support Autogas fleet programs with its new online service centre network tool, the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) has organised a webinar, “Propane Autogas Service Center Network,” as part of its “Propane Presents Technology Series” to educate marketers about the new map of over 700 dealers and facilities that service Autogas vehicles, and discuss how to take advantage of other resources to grow their fleets.

PERC’s Steve Whaley, Director of Autogas Business Development; Josh Budworth of Alliance AutoGas; and Mario Genovese of Roush CleanTech, were some of the speakers who discussed the service platforms their companies offer. In addition, Jannet Malig of Cerritos College addressed the organisation’s new training program: every fleet that is adopting LPG for the first time will be provided fuel system training for the fleet staff, local dealer, or local service centre of their choice, by the OEM provider.

“Autogas’s popularity has extended into nearly every community with more than 60,000 vehicles on the road in the United States. That growth has fuelled the development of the wide professional service network that is now available,” said Whaley. “Because Autogas provides fleets with the lowest total cost-of-ownership and unmatched reliability, there’s no reason why propane deliveries shouldn’t be powered by Autogas.”

PERC’s “Propane Presents Technology Series” focuses on new and emerging technologies, education, and best practices to approach the ideal customer. Hosted and facilitated by PERC, in partnership with various OEMs, the series aims to showcase various products across multiple markets, answer questions directly from the industry and end-users, and provide relevant resources and training information.
