Propane autogas is a clean-burning, domestically produced alternative fuel. Landscapers save 30-50 percent on fuel costs compared to gasoline or diesel.
CLEANER FUEL MEANS A CLEANER ENGINE
Propane-powered mowers significantly reduce harmful emissions and greenhouse gases. Also, because propane burns cleaner than gasoline or diesel, propane mowers are able to operate on Ozone Action Days.
NO SPILLED FUEL
The EPA estimates that 17 million gallons of fuel, mostly gasoline, are spilled each year while refueling lawn equipment. Propane’s sealed tank and refueling system means no spilled fuel — and fewer lost dollars.
Propane mowers hold one or two tanks with up to 15 gallons of fuel capacity. Propane tanks are easy to switch, minimizing equipment downtime. Cylinder exchange programs, as well as on-site refueling options, are readily available. With more than 700 propane stations across Texas, it’s easy and affordable to refuel mowing equipment with any of your neighborhood retailers. No spilling, lower cost. Now that’s good for business.
There are no storage issues with propane because — unlike gasoline — it does not go bad during the non-mowing season.
Statewide and national incentives may be available to help with your switch to propane. For more information, visit our Funding and Incentives page.
