Go Far, Pollute Less! Alliance AutoPropane Encourages Commercial Vehicle Fleets to Go Green

MONTREAL, CANADA--(Marketwired - May 26, 2015) - Bit by bit, our world is becoming greener, and a major part of the equation is the rapid strengthening or replacement of our current transportation systems by more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly alternatives.

Quebec's Alliance AutoPropane, Canada's fastest growing network of certified propane/gasoline engine conversion centers, premier equipment providers, and autogas fuel providers, has been leading the way by enabling a growing number of vehicle owners to convert immediately to propane autogas, an affordable clean-burning alternative fuel that substantially reduces greenhouse gases and other harmful emissions. With over 23 million vehicles worldwide running on autogas today, it is the third most widely used vehicle fuel in the world behind conventional gasoline and diesel.

In its mission to be at the cutting edge of advancements in the field and to promote engine conversions at a large scale, Alliance AutoPropane attended the National Propane Gas Association Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo in Atlanta, Georgia, which took place from the 11th to the 13th of April 2015, member of Alliance AutoGas, a North American consortium of more than 110 members. On April 16th, 17th, and 18th Alliance AutoPropane was one of the 227 exhibitors present at the 2015 Montreal ExpoCam at Place Bonaventure, which attracted over 15,000 members of the trucking industry, where it showcased two Hybrid propane/gasoline vehicles to encourage industry leaders to make environmentally and economically sound decisions for their commercial fleets.

Transportation is one of the major global consumers of energy, representing 20-25% of aggregate energy consumption and CO2 emissions. Autogas is among the lowest total carbon emissions fuels, showing a 20% reduction of carbon monoxide, a 40% reduction of nitrogen oxides, and more than 10% reduction of carbon dioxide versus gasoline or diesel. Whether improving the environment is a corporate priority or a sensible an answer to growing consumer concerns, converting vehicles to autogas allows majors transportation companies to make instant improvements in their sector and to highlight their 'green' fleets in their branding messages.

Alliance AuroPropane recently added two new autogas fueling stations to its Quebec network, bringing the total to fourteen. The stations are located at 40 Boul. St. Joseph, in Lachine, and at 100, St. Denis, in Victoriaville.

The organization is also inviting automobile journalist to take its "AutoPropane Challenge" by booking test drives of hybrid propane/gasoline vehicles.
