Autogas Delivery

Autogas is a popular fuel for commercial vehicle fleets. If you own a business and are looking for a reliable, cost-effective fuel for your fleet that covers light to medium work, autogas may be a great fit for your business.

While autogas is a common fuel, it is only the third most popular choice, coming in behind gasoline and diesel. If you are considering switching your current fleet to autogas compatibility or are replacing vehicles in your current fleet, read on to learn more about this fuel option available at Shipley Energy.

What Is Autogas?

Autogas is propane fuel. It comes from propane gas that is compressed into a liquefied state to be used in your vehicle fleet. Propane is an alternative energy source that is primarily produced in the United States through oil refining and natural gas extraction. Autogas is known by other names too, such as liquefied petroleum gas.

There are a number of advantages to fleets that run on autogas instead of other types of fuel, including:

  • Lower Costs: Compared to other types of fuel, autogas is much more cost-effective. Even when you include the cost to convert your fleet to autogas capabilities, the cost to refuel your fleet will be significantly lower, especially if you travel farther distances per trip. Over time, these savings more than pay for themselves over time.
  • Environmental Effects: Autogas burns much more cleanly than other types of fuel. Besides keeping your vehicles' engines cleaner, autogas produces fewer emissions than gasoline and diesel. Advertising your business as eco-friendly can help you appeal to more customers and play a positive role in helping the environment.
  • Convenience: Don't worry about finding a station. You can refuel your fleet with autogas using an onsite fill station. Don't have one? We'll build it onsite and cover the cost! We can also fill trucks directly at your convenience.
  • Safety: The tanks that carry autogas on your vehicle are much stronger than fuel tanks for other types of fuel. They're more puncture resistant to help you avoid leaks and other potential damage and negative effects. Autogas also has lower flammability than other types of fuel, helping to avoid emergencies in the case of a leak.
  • Availability: Diesel and gasoline are fossil fuels — eventually, we will deplete their resources in the environment. It takes millions of years for these resources to replace themselves naturally. Manufacturers can always meet the demand for autogas, and because there is currently a lower demand for it, there is plenty of this fuel available. This also contributes to the lower cost of autogas.

When you have a fleet that uses autogas, you need a provider that you can trust. For convenience and reliability, choose Shipley Energy to deliver the autogas LPG that you need for your whole fleet.

Autogas Services Available

Our primary autogas service is refueling your fleet, but we offer several others to support your business.

From helping you create a refuel schedule to advising you through the conversion process to autogas, Shipley Energy has the services you need!

Besides our refueling delivery, we offer a unique service to our clients. If you own a fleet that uses a fuel source other than autogas, converting that system to autogas capabilities can seem expensive and difficult. Shipley Energy has grant writing services to help you research and apply for state and national grants to make these costs more affordable for your business.

Converting Your Fleet to Autogas

Converting your fleet to autogas fuel is simpler than you might think. There are conversion kits available to convert your fleet to autogas. The autogas conversion cost can vary, depending on whether you opt for payment up front or if you finance those costs.

Conversion cost per vehicle can be anywhere around $5,000 to $7,000. If you do take advantage of the grant writing service at Shipley Energy, that total cost can be significantly lower! And, over time, the fuel savings will help the conversion pay for itself.
