Autogas expert to deliver keynote at Pacific convention

June 26, 2012 By    

Darren Engle of Blue Star Gas will give the keynote address at the 52nd annual Pacific Propane Convention & Trade Show, held June 28-29 at the Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, Wash.

Engle, who is chairman of the Propane Education & Research Council’s (PERC) Research and Technology Development Working Group, will share his expertise on propane autogas technology and infrastructure for American fleets.

“I look forward to discussing recent advances in autogas technology because it really is the most cost-effective clean fuel for U.S. fleets on the market, especially in terms of vehicle conversions and fueling infrastructure costs,” says Engle, who will speak the Friday morning of the convention, in a press release. “Natural gas gets a lot of publicity for being an affordable domestic clean fuel, but propane autogas is actually much more viable to implement for most fleets. Compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel stations cost 15 times more than autogas stations, and you can convert three autogas vehicles for the price of just one CNG vehicle.”
