Alliance AutoGas expands alt fuel network in Southeast U.S.
JACKSON, Miss. – February 19, 2013 – Lampton-Love has joined Alliance AutoGas, expanding the network’s presence in the Southeast U.S. Lampton-Love will provide fleets in Louisiana and Tennessee with the Alliance AutoGas complete program for switching vehicles to propane autogas.
“We’re excited to bring the Alliance AutoGas program to fleets in our area, with autogas fueling, vehicle conversions, staff training and support,” says Rusty Easterling, Lampton-Love vice president of retail operations and NPGA state director of the Mississippi Propane Gas Association. “Lampton-Love has been a long-time proponent of propane vehicle fuel—we had a full-service autogas vehicle conversion center in the 1970s and 1980s—and today the clean vehicle technology is better and more dependable than ever. It’s no wonder propane autogas is the most widely used alternative fuel in the world, powering upwards of 19 million vehicles globally.”
Propane autogas fleets save big on fuel costs, and vehicle conversions and fuel stations are significantly more affordable compared to other alternative fuels. There is also no loss in vehicle performance for fleets that switch from gasoline to autogas. U.S. autogas fleets currently save around $1.75 per gallon on fuel compared to gasoline, and autogas vehicles produce 30 percent fewer harmful emissions. Propane autogas is a domestically produced fuel, with 98 percent of the U.S. supply made in America.
The Alliance AutoGas complete program for fleets includes propane autogas vehicle conversions, fueling, on-site fuel station installation, data integration, training and ongoing technical support. Alliance certified conversion centers switch vehicles to autogas using the versatile bi-fuel Prins Vapor Sequential Injection (VSI) system, enabling drivers to switch to gasoline if the autogas tank runs low. The conversion kits can also be easily moved from older fleet vehicles to newer models with similar engines.
“Lampton-Love is a welcome addition to Alliance AutoGas as we continue expanding this great program throughout the U.S. and Canada to help more fleets switch to autogas,” says Stuart Weidie, president of Alliance AutoGas and founder of Autogas for America. “Propane autogas is a strong option for fleets that want to reduce their fuel costs with a reliable, clean, American-made fuel.”
