Wisconsinite launches transit business with autogas

September 18, 2012 By    

A Wisconsin entrepreneur recently launched a medical paratransit service, working with Alliance AutoGas partners Charter Fuels and The Motor Company to convert his Ford E-350 van to propane autogas.

Although Tom Tarmann is currently operating part-time as he transitions to his new venture, Tarmann says he is already saving hundreds of dollars per month by running his service vehicle on autogas.

The autogas vehicle conversion was almost entirely funded by a $5,000 grant from the state of Wisconsin, so Tarmann was able to start saving on fuel costs immediately. Tarmann also plans to convert a 2009 Ford Taurus to autogas through AllianceAutoGas, with fueling from Charter Fuels and vehicle conversion through The Motor Company, a certified Alliance conversion center.

The conversion was The Motor Company’s first, according to the company’s Dan Noel.
