Texas landscaping company cuts fuel costs with propane mowers

August 1, 2013 By    

Benchmark Landscapes, a commercial landscape maintenance and design company serving central Texas, says it has cut fuel costs by 58 percent while operating 46 lawn mowers on propane autogas. The company first switched to propane five years ago. In 2012, Benchmark says, it paid an average of $1.45 per gallon for propane versus $3.45 for gasoline, saving more than $72,000 in the course of the year. The landscaping fleet uses 36,000 gallons of propane annually, mowing for 38,640 hours over 18,480 acres. Benchmark fuels the fleet with its own on-site station.
