Matt Sgambettera, Managing Director of American Alternative Fuel, says, "These new certifications allow us to service a greater number of fleets that are interested in converting their existing gasoline vehicles to run on cleaner, cheaper AutoGas, and we are pleased to provide the opportunity for them to benefit from Alliance's complete AutoGas vehicle conversion package."

Alliance specializes in serving America's fleets with a truly turn-key alternative fuel solution including:

  • Vehicle conversion equipment and labor
  • Propane AutoGas fueling station on-site at fleet base
  • Safety and operational training for fleet personnel
  • Year-round fuel provision
  • Ongoing expert technical support

"The new certifications are yet another great example of Alliance's dedication to stay on the cutting edge of the propane AutoGas motor fuel market," says Alliance AutoGas President Stuart Weidie. "Alliance's ongoing effort to expand our range of EPA certifications reflects our determination to meet this country's vital need for cleaner air and reduced dependence on foreign oil."

The new EPA certifications allow AutoGas to serve more fleets across the country - particularly government and commercial fleets that rely heavily upon larger vehicles like vans and trucks.  Shuttle services, passenger vans, commercial pickup truck fleets, and utility and service companies, now have access to clean vehicle conversions powered by AutoGas.

AutoGas fleets - including taxi, law enforcement and municipal fleets - can expect lower fuel costs, reduced greenhouse gas emissions, and green branding opportunities, all while using a fuel that is 90 percent domestically produced.
