Save on high fuel cost: Let FTS consultants help you determine if natural gas fuels are right for your organization.
One of the most important decisions regarding a bus purchase is the type of fuel to choose. There is a lot of conflicting information out there today...those that say alternative fuels are not worth pursuing, or that diesel is going the way of the dinosaur. The fact of the matter is, each fleet may operate a different fuel type in order to achieve their best total cost of ownership, or TCO.
Propane autogas is one of the fastest-growing markets in the industry, but retailers often have a hard time finding the right place to market this fuel source. Though many fleets nationwide have adopted propane autogas, there is still much room for growth.
More than 300 organizations representing users, retailers, customers, fleet managers, utilities, and producers of clean alternative fuels, including natural gas and propane, have signed a letterurging Congress to reinstate the $0.50/gallon alternative fuels tax credit (AFTC). The National Propane Gas Association (NPGA) and NGVAmerica helped spearhead the effort.
