WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The Winston-Salem Regional Clean Transportation Meeting focused on propane autogas last week. Steve Whaley, from the national Alliance AutoGas network, shared his insights on this alternative fuel.

The event featured a number of vehicles converted by Alliance Autogas, including a Davidson County Ford E450 shuttle bus, a Ford E350 van from the Iredell County Area Transportation System, an Iredell County Sheriff’s Office Ford Crown Victoria, and an additional Alliance AutoGas police cruiser.
