Pacific Northwest Runs on Propane
Propane costs significantly less in fuel, fluids and filters. Propane engines last longer due to its minimal carbon buildup and therefore no expensive exhaust systems are needed. Plus, propane engines perform equal to traditional gasoline and diesel engines.
The Pacific Propane Industry is offering $1,500 rebates for the purchase of a new propane vehicle or propane conversion.
“Propane is a well-established fuel and is domestically produced. Using propane as a vehicle fuel increases energy security, can provide the convenience of on-site fueling economically, and reduces air pollution and the environmental impacts of vehicles.”
