Propane offers some relief from recent high gas prices
In using a technology that's more than 100 years old, Globe Airport Parking finds itself on the cutting edge of a trend
The off-site airport parking company switched most of its shuttle bus fleet to a propane-based fueling system over the past year, part of a nationwide movement as businesses search for long-term relief from high gas prices.
ICOM propane achieves fuel cost and emissions savings
Over the past two years, the Alabama Department of Corrections has enjoyed huge fuel cost savings and reduced emissions, including greenhouse gases, simply by converting 72 of its prison work release vans to propane autogas vehicles using ICOM liquid injection propane systems.
"Given the Department's high use vans, and the extremely attractive price at which Propane could be obtained from our existing state contract, the decision to switch to bi-fuel propane was an absolute no-brainer," says Andy Farquhar, the Director of the Alabama Department of Corrections. "Overall, we've been very pleased with van performance and the reliability of the ICOM JTG II conversion kits."
The kits were installed by Precision Sales & Service in Birmingham, Alabama, owned by Buddy Gamel. "ICOM has proven to be a valuable partner for our company by providing dependable, low maintenance liquid injection propane systems that will run well over hundreds of thousands of miles," Gamel says."This project was the perfect fleet to prove the reliability and performance of ICOM systems, as some of the 2014 E350 vans have achieved over 160 000 miles in less than 24 months."
The project was deemed successful by all involved parties. "This was a winner for the Alabama Department of Corrections and the taxpayers," says Albert Venezio, Chairman of ICOM North America. "Because everyone saved a lot of money and benefited from the use of a greener fuel".

PROPANE AUTOGAS A FOCUS DURING GREEN TRUCK SUMMIT AT 2016 NTEA WORK TRUCK SHOW
PERC officials to speak about propane autogas on multiple occasions during Green Truck Summit
WASHINGTON (February 24, 2016) — The Propane Education & Research Council will again participate in the Green Truck Summit sessions at the National Truck Equipment Association's Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.
The Green Truck Summit sessions include information on the latest in alternative fuels and advanced technology within the trucking and transportation industry.
Tucker Perkins, PERC's chief business development officer, is joining representatives from across alternative fuel industries to discuss “Work Truck Trends and Outlook for Alternative Fuel Technology” from 9:30 to 10:45 a.m., Tuesday, March 1.
Perkins will also lead a panel called “The Propane Autogas Advantage: Reduce Your Total Cost of Ownership” from 8 to 9:15 a.m. Wednesday, March 2. Perkins will be joined by two propane autogas users: Renee Dawson, director of transportation and school safety at DeKalb Central United Schools in Auburn, Indiana, and Glenn Chamberland, fleet manager for AAA Allied Group Inc. in West Hartford, Connecticut. Dawson and Chamberland will share their first-hand experiences with managing vehicle fleets powered by propane autogas and the subsequent savings they have enjoyed.
“From the time of purchase to the retirement of a vehicle, using propane autogas shows its advantages through less time spent on maintenance, reduced fuel costs, and more time spent on the road,” Perkins said. “In comparison to other fuels, propane has more flexible refueling options and requires no emissions-reduction equipment.”
In addition to the Green Truck Summit, PERC and Roush CleanTech will announce the adoption of propane-autogas-powered vehicles by two new major customers during a press conference at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, March 3. The conference will begin in Roush's booth, 5793.
Show attendees are invited to learn more about propane's lowest total cost-of-ownership at PERC's booth, 5591. Several propane-autogas-powered vehicles will be on display in the PERC booth, including:
- A Ford F-59 with ROUSH CleanTech fuel technology.
- A Ford F-150 with a Westport WiNG power system.
- A Ford F-250 with an ICOM alternative fuel system.

Only one alternative fuel can lower your total cost-of-ownership while reducing emissions
Lower Total Cost-of-Ownership
Even when conventional fuel prices are low, a vehicle's additional costs — like fuel, fluids, filters, and repairs — can drain your budget. Over a vehicle's lifetime, propane autogas is healthier for every line of the budget sheet.
Propane autogas vehicles are proven to deliver comparable horsepower, torque, and towing capacity to conventionally-fueled models.
While diesel engines spend valuable time in the shop for repairs on complex emissions systems, propane autogas vehicles keep your business running with reliable operation.
Propane autogas infrastructure grows with your fleet. Propane providers specialize in helping fleets choose the right refueling option based on the fleet size, routes, budget, and facility space.
Your Preferred Vehicle Class and Brand
Choose from a variety of light- to medium-duty applications, available from all major manufacturers as OEM-dedicated vehicles or certified conversions.
Benefits of Utilizing Propane Autogas
