Alliance AutoGas, Blossman Gas join autogas workshop

October 11, 2019 By    

Alliance AutoGas (AAG) and Blossman Gas participated in the Autogas Answers Workshop at the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries in Montgomery, Alabama.

The workshop, AAG explains, presented the case for using propane autogas in fleet vehicles. Additionally, autogas-fueled vehicles were on hand for live demonstrations and ride-and-drive opportunities.

Mark Denton, vice president of business development for AAG, delivered a presentation on the environmental benefits of autogas and the basics of its refueling infrastructure.

John Barnett, propane program manager for U-Haul International, was the keynote speaker for the workshop. U-Haul has grown its autogas refueling infrastructure and has the goal to serve autogas fleets on a nationwide scale.

“The company began selling propane in 1984 and has been the largest retailer of propane in the U.S. since 1987,” Barnett says. “We have been growing our infrastructure ever since. U-Haul now has over 1,100 propane dispensers in the U.S. As autogas has evolved, we continue to upgrade our pumps to accommodate the new autogas vehicles. We work with the major propane suppliers, regional propane suppliers, independent propane suppliers and third-party OEM autogas manufacturers. Now, more and more people are looking to U-Haul for their autogas fuel needs.”

The Mobile County Public School System (MCPSS) in Alabama placed 10 new 2019 model buses that operate on autogas in service for the 2019-20 school year and has 30 more autogas buses being built, AAG says. Blossman Gas provides the propane autogas to fuel MCPSS buses.

“MCPSS [has] shown exceptional stewardship with their resources in choosing propane autogas to fuel their buses,” says Chad Chavers, Blossman brand manager. “MCPSS began with the need to improve the air quality for their 26,000 students being transported daily. Autogas met that requirement, and provided the benefit of lowering their operational costs. Blossman continues to look forward to helping MCPSS bring better air quality to their students”
