Propane Autogas: Fueling Texas is a public awareness campaign that educates both the general public and fleet owners and operators about the many benefits of switching from gasoline to propane autogas, the world’s most popular alternative fuel. In addition, the campaign is equipping propane fuel marketers with the knowledge and tools they need to bring this clean, domestically produced fuel to businesses and government organizations in their service areas. Fueling Texas is made possible through generous funding from the Propane Council of Texas (ProCOT).
Texas is in a unique position to take advantage of this versatile, dependable fuel: autogas is already the most widely used alternative fuel in the Lone Star State. Texas has long been a leader in propane production and use across a wide variety of markets in the public and private sectors. Propane autogas is widely available in Texas, with more than 700 refueling stations across the state. Across the state, private businesses, municipalities, and more than 75 independent school districts operate vehicles, mowers and off-road equipment on the alternative fuel.
Since the early stages of the propane autogas market, Texas fleets have pioneered the commercialization of this alternative transportation fuel. Over the years, Texans — from farmers to landscapers to law enforcement officials – have enjoyed the many benefits of using autogas, including lower fuel costs, reduced harmful emissions, decreased pilferage and spillage, and enhanced national energy security.
Through a combination of events across the state, educational and marketing materials, sales tools, public relations, social media and other online communications, the Fueling Texas campaign raises awareness of — and support for — propane autogas as the most viable, reliable clean transportation fuel available to Texas fleets.
