The Yale Fleet – a group of official university vehicles – is now operating 23 propane vehicles, according to David Gable of Hocon Gas.

Yale purchased a bi-fuel system for a smaller cutaway transit fleet vehicle in 2016 and currently operates 11 shuttles, 11 transits and one dump truck. The university has plans to add six more shuttles, according to Gable. Cusson Automotive installed Icom systems on the vehicles. Yale Fleet Management (YFM) says the system provides 50 extra gallons of fuel per vehicle, reduces emissions and decreases maintenance costs.

A propane-fueling station was installed to sustain the fleet, and YFM is working to install a second filling station. Hocon Gas is responsible for supplying propane for Yale.
