It's amazing how everything is rolling out. The DFS is the perfect fit for the trucking industry and the demand, due to the times, is high. We've found that our customers are our best sales force; their testimonials say it all
Castleton, NY (PRWEB) June 26, 2008
American Alternative Fuel (AAF) is setting the new standard in hybrid propane conversion systems with their Diesel Fuel Saver (DFS). Not only is the system patented but it has been proven, worldwide, to benefit diesel vehicle owners. The DFS is a hybrid propane injection system that increases fuel mileage and engine performance and decreases harmful emissions in the environment. The system is backed by a warranty and has endless applications. The DFS fits virtually any vehicle with a diesel engine.
The company has also been able to target the commercial and non-commercial gas vehicle market with their Prins Propane Injection System, an EPA approved conversion system that possesses the same benefits as the DFS.
With the DFS, what started in 2000 as an alternative hybrid propane conversion kit for cars, pick-ups, utility trucks, taxis, limos, emergency vehicles and motor homes has grown to include small, medium and large fleet trucking. The newest market, independent owner-operators, is reaping immense benefits. With rising fuel costs and other economic and environmental pressures some smaller fleet companies, who once faced possible ruin, are finding the DFS as an easy, cost effective alternative for long term success. The product is being noticed within the industry; decision makers at larger fleet companies have clamored to get on board. "We have successfully implemented countless fleet conversions for companies in need of a cost effective, green alternative to meet their needs…with additional contracts currently in process," said Jason Phillips, American Alternative Fuel's Operations Manager.
"Our staff has quadrupled in less than 6 months to compensate for increased orders, including online purchases, said Jason Phillips. Customers hit our web site, http://www.americanaltfuel.com, and purchase the DFS directly. We ship worldwide and have never received a return. With over 8 years on the market, it has been proven reliable and effective, with fuel economy average increase of 20%. We are passionate about the DFS and stand by it 100%."
In the trucking industry rising fuel costs, vehicle performance, and environmental concerns are critical factors to a company's success. Customers are finding that the DFS solves all of these issues at a reasonable price. Couple the low cost of the DFS with the fast, simple installation and it makes sense. Installation can be done by the owner or at one of AAF's multiple facilities and takes only 2-4 hours.
The benefits are substantial including:
- Increased fuel mileage
- Increased engine performance including acceleration, HP and torque
- Increased engine life
- Increased mileage between oil changes and less maintenance
- Cleaner burning fuel
- Decreased emissions
- Fast, simple installation
- In some cases, substantial tax credits

"Our fleet of 300 saves over $4700 per truck!" said Blossman Gas of Ocean Springs, MS.
"On average we transport 500 miles per day…over 25 days we saved $2000!" said Stacey from Kit Carson.
"Our fuel mileage increased from 5.8 miles per gallon using gas to 7.8 miles per gallon using propane!" said Lee from Burlington, CO.
A strong cost analysis drives the point home. On average, a fleet of trucks running 10 million miles annually could save over $4.5 million a year running on propane versus diesel. This calculation is based on the national price average for diesel at $4.80 per gallon according to a recent American Automobile Association (AAA) report. The AAA also found the national average for regular gasoline at $4.00 per gallon. In comparison, propane engine fuel has ranged from $2.59-2.99 per gallon nationally. Also, fleet owners using propane not only get a more cost competitive fuel option, but qualifying owners get the added benefit of an additional $.50 federal tax credit per gallon of propane.
The Diesel Fuel Saver is unique. Unlike other systems that are only activated by boost pressure, the patented DFS is controlled and flows in proportion to the boost pressure of the engine. It comes on slow and steady and, as the boost increases, so does the flow of propane. It is fully adjustable and can be customized for your specific application in minutes including better towing performance and mileage gains.
The DFS is of top quality and used worldwide. It has been designed and engineered with every imaginable safety feature. The quality of the components is obvious: from the custom machined billet aluminum anodized LP regulator to the automotive UL rated LP fuel lock-off solenoid valve. All of the regulating is done at the tank eliminating the need for bulky and intrusive "under-the-hood" engine mounted installations. An additional regulator maintains a constant tank pressure regardless of outside temperatures. The DFS has been outfitted with safety features such as a remote mounted bracket kit complete with a high pressure hose and fittings.
Propane (also known as liquefied petroleum gas or LPG) is a well-established, domestically available, clean-burning fuel. Using propane as a fuel increases energy security, provides convenience and performance benefits, and improves public health and the environment. The U.S. imports more than 60% of its petroleum, two thirds of which is used to fuel vehicles in the form of gasoline and diesel. The demand for petroleum imports is increasing. With much of the worldwide petroleum reserves located in politically volatile countries, the United States is vulnerable to supply disruptions.
Fueling vehicles with propane diversifies U.S. transportation fuels. Most of the propane consumed in the U.S. is produced domestically and distributed via an established infrastructure. Using propane vehicles instead of conventionally fueled vehicles reduces U.S. dependence on foreign oil and increases energy security.
Propane is the most used alternative transportation fuel in the United States and the world. Propane vehicle technology is well established, and propane fueling stations are widely available. Propane has one of the highest energy densities of all alternative fuels, so propane vehicles go farther on a tank of fuel. It is also an exceptionally safe fuel: propane tanks are 20 times more puncture resistant than gasoline tanks, and propane has the lowest flammability range of all alternative fuels.
