Texas county expands autogas fleet

April 10, 2013 By    

Williamson County, a Texas county, began converting vehicles to propane autogas in 2009. Now, the county is operating 36 autogas vehicles across nine departments, and it expects to save $73,000 on annual fuel costs running the fleet on autogas.

The 36 autogas-powered vehicles in the fleet include eight with autogas-dedicated systems and 26 with bi-fuel autogas systems.

In addition, Williamson County was able to take advantage of the $0.50-per-gallon Alternative Fuel Motor Tax Credit, a federal incentive available through the IRS for fleets that choose autogas.
