Propane Autogas wisconsin

Boehlke Bottled Gas can help you get the benefits of clean-burning autogas!

New fuel-efficiency standards from the Environmental Protection Agency require that all fleet vehicles — delivery and passenger vans, work trucks, school buses, and other large trucks — lower their carbon emissions by 25% by the year 2027.

The clock’s ticking for your business, municipality, or school district.

While this is a challenge, there is the opportunity for good outcomes. Increased efficiencies and reduced emissions are better for your bottom line. You will save money on fuel costs. And fewer emissions mean less wear on your vehicles’ engines and parts, reducing your maintenance and repair costs and probably extending the life of your vehicles.

Boehlke Bottled Gas has a solution where you can meet these standards and enjoy the benefits that come with increased efficiency and lower emissions: propane autogas!

We are with you every step of the way, starting with helping you connect with a local company that will convert your fleet to autogas. We then will discuss your autogas needs thoroughly with you to custom design an autogas filling station for your business. And when your fleet is converted to autogas, you can count on us for the safe, reliable delivery Boehlke Bottled Gas is known for.

Why you should convert to propane autogas

Propane autogas offers many benefits. The big one is dollars and cents. Propane costs about 50% less than the equivalent amount of gasoline or diesel.

With propane, you’ll have dramatically lower emissions, even more than the requirement under the new fuel efficiency standards.

Because propane burns so much more cleanly than gasoline or diesel, the wear and tear on your fleet vehicles is greatly reduced. You’ll save on maintenance, repair, and replacement costs.

If your municipality has fleet vehicles and first responder vehicles, converting to autogas is a win for your community. You’ll be saving taxpayer money with lower fuel costs, reduced maintenance, and increased lifespan for your vehicles. And you’ll be reducing greenhouse gas emissions in your community, making it a cleaner and healthier place to live.

School buses run on autogas offer multiple benefits to school districts. The money savings, lower emissions, and reduced wear are three. Also, unlike diesel, propane can run no matter how cold it gets here in southeastern Wisconsin. Your buses will be on the road ready to pick up the kids and bring them home without concerns about gelling.
