Autogas School Buses Save $5,000 per Day


I hope everyone is having a great summer. It's hard to believe that schools across the country have already begun welcoming students for the 2014-15 year. Although it's a new school year, we think about school - buses, that is - year-round.

Did you know that the 480,000 school buses on the road today use approximately 9 million gallons of diesel and gasoline per year. School districts spend billions of dollars on fuel, which, not surprisingly, is purchased through overseas sources.

Detroit News' reporter Larry Edsall visited our headquarters in Livonia, Michigan, to learn more about vehicles fueled by propane autogas. In his article "Livonia Firm Turns Autos on to Propane," Edsall noted the environmental and economic savings of propane autogas.

"We noticed only one difference between that and other big gasoline and diesel pickups we've driven: Once you turn the key to start the propane-fueled engine, it takes a few seconds for fuel to be pumped," he said. "By the time your buckle clicks, the engine fires up and you're ready to roll."

New York's Washingtonville Central School District is cutting costs with propane autogas. The school system has reduced annual fuel costs by $21,000 for the autogas fleet.
