Alliance AutoGas, Big Cedar Lodge unveil partnership

March 7, 2022 By    

Alliance AutoGas (AAG), a national alternative fuel company based in Asheville, North Carolina, and Bass Pro Shops’ Big Cedar Lodge, a wilderness resort in the Ozark Mountains, are highlighting their new partnership at this year’s NTEA Work Truck Week event.

An autogas hybrid Big Cedar shuttle van will be displayed in the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) booth during Work Truck Week, North America’s largest work truck event presented by the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA), March 8-11 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

AAG, in collaboration with the Missouri Propane Gas Association, partnered with Big Cedar in November 2021 to convert two of its guest shuttles to autogas. Big Cedar Lodge is located in Ridgedale, Missouri.

From transporting guests between resort golf courses to picking them up from the airport, Big Cedar shuttles stay on the road 18 hours a day. Each one of the converted vans runs an average of 120,000 miles per year and offers carbon emissions reductions, according to AAG.

The passenger shuttle on display at Work Truck Week is a 2021 Chevrolet G3500 with a 6.6-liter direct-injected engine, converted with an Alliance engineered system featuring technology from Prins. The autogas shuttles in the Big Cedar fleet are bi-fuel, hybrid vehicles, also operating on gasoline. AAG distributes Prins alternative fuel systems in the U.S.

“Big Cedar Lodge has an outstanding team that is committed to focusing on sustainability throughout their entire operation,” says Josh Budworth, business development manager for AAG. “We are excited to partner with Big Cedar to develop their autogas program and look forward to helping them reduce their carbon footprint.”
