McAbee Trucking, the first USPS fleet in nation delivering mail with Autogas, is expanding with 20 more LPG-powered trucks, totalling 27. The company announced the initiative during the opening of its own Autogas refuelling station.

“I want my legacy to be lowering my carbon footprint for my grandchildren so we can save our environment as quickly as possible,” said owner Lisa McAbee. “Autogas is the way to accomplish that goal. And because it’s affordable, I’ve actually saved money by investing in Autogas instead of other energy sources.”

“McAbee Trucking is demonstrating that Autogas is clean energy for everyone, including the USPS,” said Tucker Perkins, president and CEO of the Propane Education & Research Council. “Considering the number of miles these trucks drive every day, this is a big step toward cleaner air to breathe and a healthier community for all Carolinians. Lisa is showing the world that Autogas is a vital part of the low emissions solution we need for a cleaner future.”

“Both Alliance AutoGas and Blossman Gas are excited to partner with McAbee Trucking to bring the world’s most widely used alternative fuel to her fleet,” said Stuart Weidie, CEO of Blossman Gas, the founding member of Alliance AutoGas and fueling partner of McAbee Trucking. “LPG is available right here, right now, and provides a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option to fleets across the U.S. As we continue to expand renewable propane in on-road applications, which has a lower carbon intensity score than electric vehicles, future production will lead to even more sustainable benefits for us all.”
