If you have a fleet of vehicles to manage, you know that keeping them fueled and the work that goes with it can be demanding.
Drivers out on the road refuel, and you have to manage the receipts. You also need to watch for fuel theft or improper charges on the company credit card. And if you have on-site fleet fueling with gasoline or diesel, you still have to worry about fuel theft on top of the risk of a fuel spill, which is an expensive hassle to clean up.
We have a solution that works for commercial, school, and municipal vehicle fleets: propane autogas from Boehlke Bottled Gas!
Boehlke Bottled Gas will work with a local company to help you convert your fleet to autogas, then design and install an autogas filling station at your business, and create a customized autogas delivery service for you.
Just about every kind! Here are some of them:
The bottom line is paramount for businesses, municipalities, and school districts. And that gives autogas a huge advantage. Autogas costs less per gallon than gasoline or diesel. And that is before you add in possible rebates, incentives, grants, and loans you may earn by converting to autogas.
Propane costs only 19 cents per mile, compared with 80 cents per mile for diesel, making propane 93% more cost effective.
Maintenance costs go down because autogas is so clean burning, creating less wear on engines while also lowering the cost of oil and filter changes.
In very cold weather, once the temperature drops below 20˚ Fahrenheit, diesel can have gelling. Gelling is when diesel thickens in the cold, becoming a gel-like substance. When diesel gels, it can no longer be pumped into the engine. That means vehicles parked outdoors in a lot, as most are, won’t run. Autogas doesn’t gel, meaning your vehicles will start even when the polar vortex pays a visit to southeastern Wisconsin.
Unlike gasoline or diesel, there’s no clean-up needed in the rare event of an autogas leak. It simply dissipates into the air without damaging air, water, soil, plants, or aquatic life.
If you’re a school district, think of where that saved money could go: more teachers, more programs, more services for students. Municipalities can save their taxpayers money. And businesses will reduce their operating costs.
Propane’s clean burning means dramatically reduced greenhouse gas emissions from gasoline and diesel. Autogas creates 12% less carbon dioxide, 20% less nitrogen oxide, and up to 60% less carbon monoxide than gasoline.
