Welcome back to autogasfleet.com. I realized that apart from talking about the benefits of AutoGas itself, fleet technologies to help make drivers safer, legislation, etc. I have written very little about actual examples of Autogas here in America. This ends now.
Below are links to articles about some of the most recent projects going on across the U.S.
- In Georgia, Muscogee County Sheriff John Darr (it’s German in case you were wondering) is converting 20 of his cruisers to run on autogas. Read more.
- Buncombe County, NC’s public transportation system, Mountain Mobility (…because who wants to walk up a mountain), has converted a quarter of its vehicles to run on autogas. Read more.
