Propane has been successfully used as a motor fuel since the 1920s and is called Autogas when it’s used as a motor fuel. The third most widely used vehicle fuel in the world, Autogas is almost entirely domestically produced. Fueling vehicles with Autogas instead of gasoline or diesel increases U.S. energy security and provides more job opportunities here. This clean, efficient motor fuel now powers everything from police cars, school buses, and delivery trucks to forklifts, lawnmowers and farm tractors.
