As you may have heard, our Connecticut neighbors at Yale University have a bit of a reputation for doing smart things. Take 2015, for example.
That’s the year when Yale began an initiative to further “green” their campus by adding alternative fuel-powered vehicles to their fleet – including vehicles powered by propane autogas. Since the initiative began Yale’s fleet has saved an average of 50 gallons of fuel per vehicle per year – all while minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and reducing the need for maintenance.
Of course Yale isn’t alone in their “discovery” of clean, green propane as a vehicle fuel: savvy fleet managers around the country have begun to reap the great benefits of autogas, and as a result the number of propane-powered vehicles in the U.S. has grown by more than 35 percent since 2012. More than 200,000 propane-powered vehicles are now on the road in the US, according to the Propane Education and Resource Council – a small but growing portion of the 25 million vehicles that run on propane worldwide.
