Alternative fuel roadshow series to launch at Centennial Celebration rally and parade

April 12, 2012 By    

Fleet vehicles in the Southeast Propane Autogas Development Program will join more than 50 propane autogas vehicles from around the country at the Propane Clean Air Rally and Autogas Parade on April 14 in Atlanta. Program administering organization Virginia Clean Cities partnered with Clean Cities-Atlanta to provide Georgia-based program vehicles for the Atlanta event, which is the first in a series of program roadshows educating local fleets, government and communities about the benefits of propane autogas.

Hosted by the National Propane Gas Association, the parade and rally kick off the industry’s Centennial Celebration prior to its Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo by putting the spotlight on propane autogas, the world’s most widely used alternative fuel. Event organizers aim to set a new Guinness World Record for the most propane autogas vehicles in one parade.

Free and open to the public, the rally will begin at noon in Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park. There will be a press conference at 1 p.m. in the park’s amphitheater, followed by a ride and drive. Program partners showcasing vehicles at the rally and parade include: Muscogee County, Carroll County and Jackson County Sheriff’s Offices; the City of Sandy Springs; and certified conversion center Force 911. Fleet managers, city officials and community members alike are encouraged to test-drive the high-performance autogas vehicles.
