On the new webpage,, visitors will find a variety of resources, infographics, case studies and videos detailing how to get started with propane autogas, the benefits of the energy source and examples from their peers. The site outlines the emissions reductions and cost benefits that allow delivery fleets to accelerate decarbonization while saving money.

“Delivery fleets face unique challenges to balance business efficiency and sustainability goals. With propane autogas, it’s no longer a balancing act. Fleets can easily achieve both,” says Steve Whaley, director of autogas business development at PERC. “Today’s propane autogas engines are 90 percent cleaner than EPA standards. The engines provide delivery fleets with clean operation without sacrificing on range, performance and reliability – all while lowering their operating costs. It’s a win for the fleet’s financial sustainability and for environmental sustainability.”

On the webpage, fleet owners can access a free, downloadable brochure detailing real-world data and testimonials from fleets across the country. As the examples show, many fleet owners save up to 60 percent on costs compared to diesel by transitioning to propane autogas. They also reduce carbon emissions by several metric tons over the life of the vehicle.

More than 60,000 propane autogas commercial vehicles are on the road today, including fleets that serve a range of delivery needs. It is widely used in both urban and rural communities, allowing fleets to run routes over 300 miles on a single refuel. With affordable and customizable infrastructure, PERC says, fleet owners can work with their propane supplier to develop a propane autogas solution specific to their fleet.
