SCHAUMBURG, IL – The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) gave its Propane Autogas Fleet Award to Go Airport Express at the 2012 Green Fleet Conference on Oct. 3 in Schaumburg, Ill. Michael Taylor, PERC’s director of autogas business development, presented the award to the company, which runs 30 Roush CleanTech Ford E-350 propane-autogas-fueled vans in the Chicago area.
“Go Airport Express is pleased to use propane autogas to fuel its vans,” Robert Hann, vice president of marketing, Go Airport Express, said. “Propane autogas lowers our operating costs, emits fewer pollutants, and provides a great ride for our customers. Thank you, PERC, for honoring Go Airport Express with the Propane Autogas Fleet award.”
Propane may be a viable option for certain fleets looking for an alternative fuel source. While converting a vehicle to a propane system comes with a high initial cost, the system may come with reduced lifecycle costs over the course of that vehicle's life.
