Alliance AutoGas Redesigns Website to Better Engage Fleet Customers Interested in Adopting Alternative Fuels
Feb 17, 2011 (04:02 PM EST)

ASHEVILLE, N.C., Feb. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliance AutoGas is pleased to formally announce the launch of its recently renovated website that makes it easy for fleets to learn about converting vehicles to run on clean-burning autogas.

The website,, takes the mystery out of the vehicle conversion process for busy fleet managers and owners who need the facts up front. Of the many updates to the site, the "Fleets" section is now even easier to navigate. This component walks business and fleet visitors through vehicle makes and models which can be up-fitted to run on autogas, how onsite fueling can be implemented at the fleet base, and the training that fleet mechanics and drivers receive.

"Our driving motivation in giving the site a facelift was to create the most fleet-friendly autogas resource on the web," explained Stuart Weidie, president of Alliance AutoGas. "Alliance is proud to be a leader in providing an autogas solution that reduces fleet operational costs and greenhouse gas emissions, and the new site shows our commitment to creating the best experience for our fleet customers."

Autogas fleets save substantially on fuel costs, since autogas is about $1.00 less per gallon than gasoline with a 50-cent-per-gallon federal tax credit. Additionally, autogas vehicles emit significantly less harmful greenhouse gases, reducing emissions by 20 percent compared to gasoline and diesel vehicles. And because autogas is a cleaner-burning fuel, autogas vehicles require fewer oil changes and experience extended engine life. Alliance offers bi-fuel conversions, so the vehicles start on gasoline and switch immediately to autogas. The ability to run on gasoline in the event that autogas fueling is out of range, means peace of mind for vehicle drivers.

"There are only about 200,000 autogas-powered vehicles in the United States, yet autogas is the most widely use alternative fuel in the world," says Weidie. "Alliance is working to bring clean, economical autogas to more fleets across the U.S., and we hope the renovated website will encourage fleets who are ready to learn more."
