USA: Chicago coalition promotes benefits of Autogas adoption

The Chicago Area Clean Cities Coalition, along with the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), is hosting an event on 2 August dedicated to promote the advantages of LPG-powered vehicles.

The free workshop, called “Propane Power in the Preserves,” is aimed at fleet managers, school administrators, vehicle providers, equipment manufacturers, fuel providers and the public in general. Autogas vehicles will be available to test-drive.

“There are many fleets throughout the Chicago area using Autogas to power their vehicles, including passenger vehicles, pickup trucks, police cars, delivery vehicles, cargo vans, shuttles and school buses,” said John Walton, chair of Chicago Area Clean Cities. “Using Autogas to power vehicles has environmental and economic benefits. It is a safe and easy-to-use fuel that has lower tailpipe emissions. It also is quieter than diesel combustion and costs less than diesel or gasoline.”

Globally, Autogas is the most widely-used alternative fuel, and nearly 90% of LPG supplies are produced in the U.S. Fleets can significantly reduce greenhouse gas, NOx, and SOx emissions compared to diesel and gasoline, while also cutting fuel and maintenance costs, too.

The programme is open to anyone who wants to learn about the advantages of using Autogas as a transportation fuel, as well as those who currently own or operate LPG-powered fleet vehicles. For more information, please visit this link.
