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.”
The new vehicles will annually consume approximately 36.8 million gallons of clean propane autogas, and many will be displacing fuels with higher emissions like gasoline and diesel, according to the Propane Education & Research Council.
