Alliance Autogas, in conjunction with American Alternative Fuel, has recently been approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to convert more than 200 vehicle types to propane autogas using the Prins System. American Alternative Fuel funded the EPA’s certifications so that fleet owners and managers nationwide have different options to choose from when converting to clean burning autogas.

New certifications include the latest model years for the Ford Crown Victoria and E-Series vans, in addition to certifications for several medium-duty GM platforms. This is the largest privately financed portfolio of autogas vehicle certifications in the U.S., with more than 200 eligible vehicles.

“Alliance Autogas is dedicated to serving America’s fleets by continually expanding our EPA-certified vehicle options,” said Stuart Weidie, president of Alliance Autogas and founder of Autogas for America. “Our partners have worked hard to achieve such an extensive portfolio, and we’re proud to have reached this milestone without government or industry underwriting.”

It is also on average $1.25 per gallon less than gasoline, and Alliance Autogas fleets report less maintenance needs and increased vehicle engine life after converting to autogas.

Alliance Autogas provides both bi-fuel and propane-dedicated conversions using Prins vapor and liquid injection technology. The bi-fuel Prins VSI system automatically switches back to gasoline if the autogas tank runs low when the driver cannot reach a fueling station.

“We are extremely excited about this achievement in our already diverse portfolio of EPA-certified vehicle models,” noted Matt Sgambettera, president of American Alternative Fuel, which is the exclusive U.S. distributor of the Prins System. “Now more than ever, we are able to effectively serve public and private fleets interested in converting their gasoline-powered vehicles to run on environmentally friendly, affordable autogas. Not only is Alliance Autogas America’s only complete program for fleets to shift to autogas, we can now work with more vehicle types than anyone else in the country. Autogas is a smart choice for fleets, and with the Alliance complete program, it’s an easy choice.”

Alliance Autogas also offers a savings calculator to estimate fleet’s annual fuel cost savings.
