Calgary, Alberta – The Propane Gas Association of Canada (PGAC) has announced the launch of a new auto propane conversion web site that will provide everything Canadian fleet managers need to know about choosing propane to power their fleets. The site is found at.
Targeted primarily at Canadian private and government fleet managers, the site offers information not previously accessible in one online location. “Given the current high price of gasoline, these market segments can immediately benefit from the cost savings afforded by propane-powered fleets,” said Ann Marie Hann, president of PGAC. “Our objective is to provide online tools and comprehensive information that allow fleet managers to easily analyze how a propane-powered fleet would benefit their organization from an economic, environmental and safety perspective.”
PGAC reports that from 1998 to mid-2008, across Canada, propane cost an average 37 per cent less per litre than gasoline and 36 per cent less than diesel, and that dedicated propane vehicles emit up to 27 per cent fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gasoline vehicles.
