Fleet professionals know that safety is the most important issue they are facing today.

According to a University of California Riverside study, diesel-fueled medium- and heavy-duty vehicles are the number one source of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions in almost every single metropolitan region in the U.S.
NOx is so harmful to human health and the environment that the federal government requires it to be regulated. Think about it this way: every time drivers wait outside a diesel vehicle, they are exposed to soot and NOx.
A key component of reducing a fleet’s emissions and carbon footprint, without losing sight of the bottom line, is propane autogas. Current propane technology enables commercial fleets to order the number of commercial vehicles needed, whether that’s one, a dozen or 100.
