The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) will highlight propane autogas’ low total cost of ownership at the 2015 NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis.

Fleet managers are invited to interact with PERC’s dimensional displays describing why fleets are increasingly choosing American-made propane autogas, and can calculate the lifetime operating costs for their own fleets by using PERC’s Propane Autogas Cost Calculator at PERC booth #5585.

“Propane autogas is unique in that it offers a strong ROI for fleets and a low total cost of ownership over the lifetime of the vehicle,” said Tucker Perkins, PERC chief business development officer. “When fleet managers consider maintenance, fuel costs, and uptime on our growing portfolio of medium-duty vehicles, they understand why fleets like UPS and DISH have made a switch from gasoline and diesel to a clean alternative fuel like propane autogas.”

Propane autogas’ advantages have prompted PERC to continue investing in the commercialization of medium- and heavy-duty equipment options with leading manufacturers. During the show, PERC is co-hosting two press announcements that highlight two new technologies:

  • Blossman Services, Inc., will make a customer announcement about its Ford Transit conversion package on Wednesday, March 4, at 2 p.m. in the PERC booth, #5585.

  • ROUSH CleanTech will make an announcement in its booth, #5103, on Wednesday, March 4, at 2:35 p.m.

PERC is also hosting a breakout session for the Green Truck Summit, “Fueling a Competitive Edge: New Propane Autogas Technology & Offerings”, on March 4 from 4:30-5:15 p.m. Attendees can learn about new propane autogas technologies and offerings for medium-duty vehicles, including a diesel substitution system. Presenters include Ron Anders of Freightliner Custom Chassis Corp. (FCCC), Ed Hoffman of Blossman Services, Inc., Todd Mouw of ROUSH CleanTech, and Tucker Perkins of PERC.
