  4. 4. Propane Project First we looked at our ROI and found that we could utilize a green technology and also, increase our bottom line We then decided that it would be best to install our own propane re-fueling station with the following reasons in mind  Locations currently available  Price of buying bulk propane  Ease of accessibility
  5. 5.  We began to look for a propane vendor  We chose to proceed with Boehlke Bottle Gas mainly due to pricing but also… We used Boehlke Bottle Gas to aid us in researching and coming up with a plan for the new site  Site Preparations  Rules and Regulations  Training Requirements
  6. 6.  Site Description  2-1990 Gallon Tanks  Clean Fuel USA 2000 Series Meter System  Blackmer LPG Pump with a 7.5hp motor  Petrovend K-800 with Phoenix software  Automatic Changeover Control for Compressed Nitrogen  Before fueling the site asks for fleet number and odometer
  7. 7. Vehicles Currently our Airport Shuttle vans average around 100,000 miles a year each We have 45 vans that service Southeastern Wisconsin with transportation to and from Mitchell International and O’Hare International Airport We Utilize Ford E-350 vans with a 5.4L engine in them We chose to go with used 2009 model year vans These vans had mileages between 30,000 to 100,000 miles when we completed the installs
  8. 8.  Current Fuel mileages on the vans is about 10.3MPG over a sample of 150,000 miles. Our current cost of propane is on average less than $2.00 per gallon with all taxes included
  9. 9. The Bumps in The Road Driver adjustments to the propane vehicles Range limits of the vehicles and the adjustments to them The amount of time it takes to get parts to repair the propane kit components
  10. 10. Million Dollar Question Would we recommend this fuel to others? We plan on purchasing 9 more kits for our Airport Shuttle vehicles to bring our total to 30 of 45 vans running on propane  These kits will feature the extended range tank to decrease range limits with the vehicles We plan on adding a propane school bus along with a commercial bus that runs on propane
