Auto Propane For Your Fleet

With fewer emissions and lower fuel costs, propane is Canada’s fleet solution. From vans, pickup trucks and passenger cars to school buses and trucks, here’s why you should choose propane.

Lower Costs 

With propane autogas, you will experience immediate and long-term cost savings. Propane is typically up to 40% less expensive than gasoline or diesel.  These fuel savings quickly make up for the initial cost of conversion, within as little as 24 months payback. Because propane burns cleaner, you can prolong the lifespan of your fleet and substantially reduce maintenance costs.

Lower Emissions

The numbers speak for themselves: propane is the an environmentally friendly alternative fuel. Compared to gasoline, propane has fewer Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHG), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Nitrogen Oxide (NO) emissions. Compared to diesel, propane produces 98% less particulate matter and up to 15% less GHG emissions. The environmental risks are virtually eliminated as propane will dissipate into the air and will not impact water, air or soil.

High Performance

While the cost savings and environmental benefits of propane are significant, performance should never be sacrificed. Propane delivers the same engine performance as gasoline in terms of vehicle power, torque, range and acceleration. And compared to compressed natural gas-powered vehicles, propane offers nearly double the energy efficiency.  Also, when winter hits, propane provides superior cold weather performance compared with diesel engines.

Reduced Downtime

Less maintenance means less downtime. Auto propane provides reliable performance without the additional maintenance, time and expenses demanded by diesel. Diesel technology requires diesel emissions fluid (DEF) to purchase, store and add — plus additional particulate filters.

Flexible Infrastructure

Choose an affordable, scalable, private network or leverage public and private refueling stations. As your business grows, move from a basic dispenser to a convenient cardlock system. Not only is the infrastructure scalable it can also cost less than other auto fuels.

Superior Safety

Fuelling with auto propane is as safe and simple as filling up with gasoline or diesel. And automotive propane tanks are 20x more puncture-resistant than gasoline tanks. In the event of an accident, auto propane tanks keep commuters safer with less risk of rupturing than gasoline tanks.

Auto Propane Vs. Other Fuels

 

  

PROPANE

  

GAS

  

DIESEL

  

COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS (CNG)

Cost

 

Propane costs up to 40% less than diesel and gasoline.

 

Historically gasoline is 30-40% more expensive than propane.

 

On average diesel is 40-50% more expensive than propane.

 

CNG fuel cost is low but the savings are negated by the high cost of transportation and storage.

Emissions

 

Propane reduces GHGs emissions and emits 98% less particulate matter than diesel.

 

Gasoline emits 26% more GHG emissions than propane.

 

Diesel vehicles emit 80% more smog-producing hydrocarbon emissions and are 50% noisier. Diesel emissions are toxic containing GHGs and particulate matter.

 

Like auto propane, CNG vehicles reduce harmful emissions by more than 20% when compared to gasoline.

Safety

 

Propane vaporizes when released to minimize environmental risk. Propane tanks are 20X more puncture resistant than gasoline tanks.

 

Gasoline is extremely flammable and can ignite at temperatures as low as -40 degrees celsius and gasoline tanks are less puncture resistant than propane tanks.

 

Diesel risks include environmentally damaging spills and fuel contamination from long-term storage.

 

Should a CNG leak occur, the gas will disperse rapidly upwards into the atmosphere and dissipate.

Maintenance & Infrastructure Costs

 

Propane burns cleaner, causing less wear and tear on equipment resulting in lower maintenance costs.

 

Gasoline does not burn as cleanly as alternative fuels, this leads to an increase in maintenance costs, meaning a higher overall operating cost.

 

Due to the higher costs of diesel fleet maintenance, propane offers lower overall costs.

 

CNG requires substantial infrastructure to compress and cool fuels. Fueling stations may cost over 90% more than propane.

Make The Switch To Auto Propane

Want to bring automotive propane to your fleet? Here’s how:

Buy a vehicle from the factory that is propane-ready. These vehicles are manufactured with an engine that is dedicated for use with propane fuel and carries a warranty just like gasoline and diesel engines.
Aftermarket conversions involve fitting an existing vehicle engine to enable the use of propane fuel. We’ve partnered with major aftermarket propane technology providers that can economically and efficiently convert your engine.

Vehicle Classes

No matter the size of the vehicles in your fleet, propane helps your transportation fleet lower maintenance and fuel costs, while also reducing harmful emissions. Find out why propane has become the most widely used and accepted alternative to conventional petroleum-based transportation fuels.

Light duty pickups and vans are ideal for propane.  Whether you are converting an existing fleet or purchasing new vehicles, propane autogas saves fuel costs and reduces maintenance expenses.  Fuel cost savings for this class of vehicle typically offer a short payback, making these vehicles ideal for conversion.
If you use cube vans, custom body trucks, or delivery trucks for your business, propane saves you money on fuel, plus gives you more uptime when compared to diesel. Your vehicles will spend less time in the shop for repairs and there’s no need for diesel exhaust fluid. Propane gives you savings with all the performance of diesel, delivering comparable horsepower, torque, and towing capacity.
At a time when budgets are tight, propane school buses consistently provide lower fuel and reduced maintenance costs compared to diesel buses.
School bus fleets converted to propane from diesel emit significantly less carbon dioxide and fine particulate matter - and are cleaner for their passengers.
In yard auto propane dispensers are an ideal solution for bus lines.
For fleets such as police, paramedics, and public works services, propane delivers better performance for each dollar invested, lowering the total cost-of-ownership for your fleet. When you factor in the
decrease in fuel and maintenance costs, and longer engine lifespan, propane will continue to outperform diesel or gasoline over the life-cycle of your fleet.

Certified Conversion Systems

If you’re looking for an aftermarket conversion in Canada, it must be conducted by a qualified professional. Under provincial regulations, service technicians and qualified system retrofitters (QSR) must carry an internal combustion alternative fuel certificate to be licensed to work on a propane vehicle.

 

We work with conversion manufacturers such as Prins, Landi Renzo, and Roush Performance, to provide you with a propane system that a QSR can install to economically and reliably convert your light- or medium-duty vehicles for propane operation.
