Charter Fuels Presents Benefits of Propane Autogas to Wisconsin Public Works Leaders
WAUSAU, Wis. – November 8, 2011 – Charter Fuels President Doug Pink presented the benefits of propane autogas to the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Public Works Association at the APWA WI 2011 fall conference. A partner in the national Alliance AutoGas network, Charter Fuels helps Wisconsin fleets save money and go green by shifting from gasoline to clean-burning, affordable autogas.
Held November 2—4 at the Jefferson Street Inn in historic downtown Wausau, Wis., the annual meeting of the Wisconsin APWA is a gathering of public works officials and employees from across the state, including civil engineers, building supervisors, directors of public works, city managers and private contractors.
“Public works professionals are dedicated to improving the quality of life for our communities and solving some of the most difficult problems faced by future generations,” said Pink. “As these leaders evaluate clean energy options, it’s vital they are informed about autogas. Running public fleets on autogas will not only save taxpayers money, it will reduce harmful pollutants and ensure a cleaner energy future for our cities.”
Autogas is an American-made fuel that burns cleaner than gasoline and costs an average of $1 less per gallon. Alliance AutoGas will install an on-site fueling station for fleets at no up-front cost, making autogas a viable clean fuel that can provide a timely return on investment. Vehicles running on autogas require less maintenance and experience increased engine life, while maintaining a comparable performance to gasoline vehicles.
Alliance AutoGas is the only complete program to help U.S. fleets shift to the world’s most popular alternative fuel. Learn more at: www.allianceautogas.com.
