Why Ohio Runs on Propane

Ohio has over 30,000 propane-powered vehicles on the roads today. Propane-powered vehicles cut significantly more NOx (Nitrogen oxides) and greenhouse gas emissions compared to diesel and gasoline. The EPA considers propane a clean alternative fuel according to the Energy Policy Act of 1992, and is known as the number one alternative fuel around the world.
