Mark your calendars: the propane industry is turning 100, and the NPGA is kicking off the centennial celebration with a Propane Clean Air Rally & Autogas Parade in Atlanta April 14. The event will highlight clean, American-made propane autogas, featuring autogas-powered vehicles of all types. They’re even aiming to set a new Guinness World Record for the most propane autogas vehicles in one parade!
With gasoline prices continuing to rise, autogas is an affordable domestic fuel we can’t afford to ignore. CNG may be making headlines, but autogas is actually more cost-effective to implement when it comes to fueling infrastructure and vehicle conversions.
The event will showcase a wide range of autogas vehicles, from buses, trucks, and cars, to forklifts, commercial lawn mowers and golf carts. Virginia Clean Cities and Clean Cities-Atlanta will provide propane-powered vehicles from Georgia fleets in the landmark Southeast Propane Autogas Development Program. The autogas vehicles will be available for ride & drives following the parade and rally.
Participating industry organizations also include Alliance AutoGas, CleanFuel USA, ROUSH CleanTech and the Propane Education and Research Council. Visit www.pcc100.org for more information, including event times and location.
