  1. 1. JEFFERSON COUNTY Power in Propane For Over 30 Years
  2. 2. Minimal exterior modifications
  3. 3. MAIN reason for use = SAVINGS $120,000 per year in fuel savings
  4. 4. 50¢ per gallon Federal Alternate Fuel Rebate brings cost for propane to well under $1 per gallon. Additional savings: Reduced oil changes due to cleanliness of fuels. Higher resale value – keeps engines looking new due to lack of carbon build-up in the engine compartment.
  5. 5.  Other benefits:  GREEN – Burns clean  Minimizes carbon footprint  Performance is enhanced  Mile per mile - gas vs. propane almost identical  Reduced mechanic time  Ease of fueling
  6. 6. Squads travel an average of 85,000 miles per year and are kept two to three years. Cost of system: $7,000 to $8,500 Payback 8-10 months
  7. 7. Just remember, if it could have been done wrong, it was done wrong. Program was started on a shoestring with no mechanic, a backyard tank, and no way to tell when it was full or how full it was. When in a high-speed chase, a block of ice formed on the carburetor. Due to technology enhancements we’ve come a long way.
  8. 8.  Technology is much easier to work with, much more dependable.  It’s a safe fuel, tanks are 20 times stronger than a gas tank and have withstood 60-plus mile an hour impacts with no leaks. Special thanks to Wisconsin Clean Cities for all their assistance and grant funding.
