Propane:
Huge Fleet ROI

PROVEN

From light- and medium-duty vehicles
to buses, propane autogas fleet vehicles are trusted to get the job done.These vehicles feature proven technology that’s trusted by fleets across the U.S.

EASY REFUELING

You have several convenient refueling infrastructure solutions to choose from, depending on your fleet’s size. Quick-Connect nozzles make the process even easier — your drivers just click in the nozzle, refuel, and go.

MORE UPTIME

While diesel engines spend valuable
time in the shop for repairs on complex emissions systems, propane autogas vehicles keep your business running with reliable operation.

Infrastructure options:

400 miles per tank fill with propane

Onsite Standard Private station

  • Best for a fleet of less than 5o 
  • Onsite 1,000 – 3,000-gallon tank

Option 1: Propane Supplier Owns Infrastructure

The fleet is responsible for site preparation: crash protection and electrical.

Cost for Fleet: $1,500-$15,000 (site preparation)

Option 2: Fleet Owns Infrastructure

The fleet will need to account for purchasing the propane tank, pump, motor, and dispenser.

Cost for Fleet: $20,000-$60,000 (infrastructure) + $1,500-$15,000 (site preparation)

Onsite Advanced Private station

  • Best for 50+ vehicles
  • Larger gallon tank, canopy & multiple dispensers

Option 1: Propane Supplier Owns Infrastructure

The fleet is responsible for site preparation: crash protection and electrical for a two-dispenser setup.

Cost for Fleet: $5,000-$75,000 (site preparation)

Option 2: Fleet Owns Infrastructure

The fleet is responsible for site preparation: crash protection and electrical for a two-dispenser setup.

Cost for Fleet: $60,000-$225,000 (infrastructure) + $5,000-$75,000 (site preparation)

Private or Public Network

Fleets with limited space, or fleets needing more fueling locations along their routes can take advantage of this option with no infrastructure investment. Network refueling stations are accessible 24/7 through a card lock system.

If a network is not currently available in your area, a propane supplier may create one for your fleet, if it’s large enough. Alternatively, multiple fleets can team up to provide adequate load for requesting a refueling network.
