Propane for Fleets

  • CleanFUEL USA designs alternative fuel engine and refueling solutions that allows public and private fleets to take advantage of the cost and environmental benefits of propane.
  • It recently announced a new 6.0L engine to covert OEM light-duty gasoline-powered vehicles, (e.g. passenger vans, shuttle buses, walk-in vans, utility and service vehicles) to operate on propane. When the 6.0L is made generally available early next year, it will be the first dedicated, GM light-duty propane engine to be EPA and CARB (California Air Resources Board) certified.
  • A non-toxic gas, propane yields 87 percent less hydrocarbons and 50 percent fewer toxins than gasoline. It is an ideal fleet fuel because of its ecological qualities and cost-efficiency compared to other petroleum-based fuels, roughly 40-50 percent less than gasoline/diesel per gallon.
  • Propane (also known as Autogas) powers roughly 14 million cars and trucks worldwide, and is gaining domestic popularity with government incentives.
  • The Department of Energy granted $12.9 million to CleanFUEL USA to build the nation's first and largest propane refueling network with 186 state-of-the-art Autogas stations in major U.S. cities.
