MADISON, WI – Midwest Roofing and Construction in Dodgeville, Wis., expects to save around $5,000 annually on fuel costs after converting the company’s 2012 Ford F-150 5.0L to run on clean propane autogas.

Wisconsin propane retailer Charter Fuels facilitated the vehicle conversion, fuel supply, and safety training as part of the national Alliance AutoGas network.

“The first month after the truck was converted to run on propane autogas, we used 354 gallons and saved somewhere between $400-500 on fuel,” said Midwest Roofing and Construction Owner Josh Fowler. “Now that we’ve been running the truck for a while, we’ve used more than 800 gallons of autogas and saved around $1,200. The truck is used to pull large loads, and we have been pleased with the reliable performance and towing capacity since switching to autogas.”

Charter Fuels helps Midwest fleets switch to propane autogas through the Alliance AutoGas complete program, which includes vehicle conversions, installation of a fueling station at the fleet base, data integration for fuel management systems, operational and safety training and ongoing technical support. Alliance financing options also make it possible for fleets to make the switch to autogas at no upfront cost.
