Alliance AutoGas makes progress around the country

August 9, 2011 By    

• The Raleigh, N.C., police department announced the conversion of 10 police vehicles to run on propane autogas through the Alliance AutoGas complete system. Alliance AutoGas outfitted the Ford Crown Victoria cruisers with dual fuel systems and installed an on-site autogas fueling station at the Raleigh North District stationhouse. These conversions are estimated to save about 36,000 gallons of gasoline over a year while saving at least $30,000 in fuel costs.

Blue Star Gas hosted a “Ride & Drive” event at its Salem, Ore., location in conjunction with Alliance AutoGas, featuring five propane‐autogas‐powered emergency and law enforcement vehicles. Members of the community and local area law enforcement tested the performance of the autogas vehicles, which included a Ford Crown Victoria, a Ford Expedition, a Ford Escape, a Chevy 3500 and a Dodge Charger.

Nantucket Energy Corp. LLC partnered with Alliance Autogas to help supply community fleets on the island of Nantucket (Mass.) with propane autogas.
