Propane Autogas; A Smart Vehicle Alternative for Wisconsin

  1. 1. Propane Autogas:A Smart Vehicle Alternative for Wisconsin
  2. 2. Propane Autogas:The Smarter Vehicle Alternative• Propane-autogas-fueled vehicles have existed foralmost 100 years• Approximately 17 million propane-autogas-fueledvehicles are in operation around the globe• Propane autogas is the most widely used alternativetransportation fuel in the world
  3. 3. EvansvilleReviewNovember 21, 1963LPG Gas TractorsMake Tracks,Not only all over thefarm for every usefuljob calling for power,but tracks to thebank…with thesavings madepossible by LPG…

  5. 5. Propane Autogas:The Smarter Vehicle AlternativeWhy the increased interest inpropane-autogas-fueled vehicles?Economical Environmentally FriendlySafety AdvantagesDomestically Produced
  6. 6. Economical• Costs less per gallon than gasoline or diesel fuel• Lower maintenance costs• Incentives available for fleet use
  7. 7. EconomicalData provided by: ThyssenKrupp Elevator AmericasThyssenKrupp saved more than $2,900 per vehicle fueledwith propane autogas in 2012.This represents a 41% savingsin fuel costs.
  8. 8. Environmentally FriendlyPropane-autogas-fueled vehicles emit 17 percentfewer greenhouse gases into the atmosphere thangasoline-fueled vehicles.Emissions ComparisonGasoline-fueled Vehicle emissionsPropane-autogas-fueled vehicles12% fewer carbon dioxide emissions 20% fewer nitrogen oxide emissions 60% fewer carbon monoxide emissions
  9. 9. Hybrid Diesel Injection
  10. 10. For anyone who operates a diesel poweredpiece of equipment to accomplish the following:Reduce fuel costs2. Extend engine life by reducing carbon abrasionwithin a diesel engine3. Reduce carbon emissions- Reduced Particulate Matter Filter Regenerations(newer model motors)- Reduced Urea usage (newer model motors)4. Safely Increase horsepower
  11. 11. Hybrid diesel Injection displaces a portion of your diesel fuelwith propane or natural gas. This displacement rangesbetween 20% and 50% - depending on which fuel is beingused. Propane and natural gas cost far less than dieselfuel. For example, the average over-the-road heavy truckthat travels 100,000 miles a year will save between $11,000and $15,000 a year on their fuel bill using HDI.How Does HDI Work?
  12. 12. • Approximately 90percent of propaneconsumed in the U.S. isproduced domestically• An additional 7 percentis produced in CanadaDomestically Produced
