Propane: Clean and Cost-Effective Transportation for West Michigan
Also known as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), propane is a domestically produced, well-established, clean-burning fuel. Using propane as a vehicle fuel increases energy security, provides convenience and performance benefits, and improves public health and the environment.
Propane can also save you money. The fuel is less expensive than gasoline, and infrastructure costs are the lowest among all alternative fuels. Propane’s high octane and low-carbon characteristics have resulted in greater engine life than conventional gasoline engines. Because the fuel’s mixture of propane and air is completely gaseous, cold start problems associated with liquid fuel are reduced.
This workshop will address all aspects of propane, including: the business case for fleet conversion, fuel system and engine availability, and building the infrastructure.
Light refreshments will be provided. Attached parking is available, but space is limited so please arrive early.
WHEN: Thursday, June 28 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
WHERE: Sneden Hall, Grand Rapids Community College | 415 Fulton St. East, Grand Rapids, MI 49503 (map)
