National parks investing in propane autogas

June 20, 2012 By    

Three national parks around the United States will be deploying propane-fueled vehicles and lawn mowers as part of an effort between the U.S. Energy Department and the National Park Service to reduce reliance on imported oil.

Among the national parks deploying propane vehicles and lawn mowers are Shenandoah National Park in Virginia, San Antonio Missions National Historical Park in Texas and Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.

Shenandoah National Park plans to partner with Virginia Clean Cities to deploy 12 propane lawn mowers, while San Antonio Missions National Historical Park plans to partner with Alamo Area Clean Cities to deploy a propane-powered truck. Mesa Verde National Park plans to partner with both the Southern Colorado and Philadelphia Clean Cities coalitions to deploy a new propane bus, shuttle van, truck and lawnmower, along with two propane fueling stations.
