Autogas is a clean-burning alternative fuel that substantially reduces greenhouse gases and other harmful emissions when compared to gasoline or diesel. Whether improving the environment is a corporate priority, or you recognize that ‘sustainable’ solutions are on the minds of the American consumer, converting to autogas allows your business to contribute to improvements in the transportation sector and to highlight your ‘green’ fleet in brand messaging.
Autogas-powered vehicles produce lower emissions than gasoline vehicles, charting the following reductions:
- Over 20% less carbon monoxide
- A greater than 40% reduction in nitrogen oxides
- Just over 10% less carbon dioxide
Because the production of ethanol requires substantial plant growth, the CO2 consumed by plants during crop growth is credited back to ethanol as a motor fuel when evaluating its total carbon emissions.
