Propane Autogas – Conversions and Infrastructure

Houston Fleets Switch to Propane Autogas to Improve Air Quality

June 19, 2013

Many Houston-area vehicle fleets are converting to clean propane autogas in an effort to help reduce pollution and contribute to cleaner air — a significant concern for Houston, which was recently listed the seventh smoggiest U.S. city by the American Lung Association.

Propane autogas is widely available across Texas, with 700 autogas fuel stations statewide. There are 15 public autogas fueling stations in Houston and approximately 60 within 50 miles of the city. Fleets can also choose to install onsite fueling infrastructure at a low cost. The Houston-Galveston Area Council has announced grant funding for light- and heavy-duty vehicles, as well as fueling infrastructure for fleets in Harris, Fort Bend, Waller, Montgomery, Liberty, Chambers, Galveston, and Brazoria counties.

The Propane Council of Texas, a non-profit organization has been dedicated to educating the public and the propane industry on safety and on the newest clean-burning propane technologies. For more information, visit www.Houston-CleanCities.org
