CleanFuel USA installs 85 autogas refueling stations as part of federal grant

October 15, 2013 By    

CleanFuel USA says it has completed the installation of 85 retail propane autogas refueling stations across 13 states. The publicly accessible stations are expected to serve thousands of fleet managers and individuals operating vehicles fueled by propane autogas. Most of the stations are located near heavily trafficked roadways, existing fueling stations, major airports and home improvement stores. The last propane autogas refueling location was installed at an Exxon Mobile station in Charleston, W.Va. The construction of these facilities and refueling equipment were funded through a $12 million grant from the Department of Energy’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Texas State Technical College served as the lead grantee of the funds, which supported the development of a national propane autogas refueling network, incentives to convert school buses and other fleet vehicles to alternative fuels, and training for green jobs. In addition to station installations, the grant partially funded nearly 700 vehicle conversions and new propane autogas vehicle purchases for multiple fleets across the country, including VIA Metropolitan Transit in San Antonio, the city of Springfield, Ill., Fashion Glass and Mirror in Texas, as well as various school districts. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center lists public refueling stations across the country, including more than 2,600 for propane.
