Charter Fuels helps roofing company convert F-150 to autogas

June 20, 2012 By    

Wisconsin propane retailer Charter Fuels facilitated a vehicle conversion, fuel supply and safety training for Midwest Roofing and Construction in Dodgeville, Wis. The roofing company expects to save about $5,000 on fuel costs each year after converting its 2012 Ford F-150 to run on propane autogas.

“The first month after the truck was converted to run on propane autogas, we used 354 gallons and saved somewhere between $400 and $500 on fuel,” says Josh Fowler, owner of Midwest Roofing and Construction. “Now that we’ve been running the truck for a while, we’ve used more than 800 gallons of autogas and saved around $1,200.”

Charter Fuels helps Midwest fleets switch to autogas through an Alliance AutoGas program that includes vehicle conversions, installation of a fueling station at the fleet base, data integration for fuel management systems, operational and safety training and ongoing technical support.
