For more information about government incentives, call Ted Olsen at 805-239-0616.
Arro Autogas knows that when it comes to fuel, propane is a frontrunner in saving the planet. Approved by the Environmental Protection Agency as a clean, low-carbon alternative fuel, propane leads all transportation fuels in producing the lowest greenhouse gas emissions (U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Data Center). Propane is nontoxic, so it’s not harmful to soil or water, and is listed in both the 1990 Clean Air Act and the Energy Policy Act of 1992 for being one of the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels.
President Obama’s new stimulus package, which encourages municipalities to use alternatively fueled vehicles, offers government grants to cover a portion of the cost of establishing propane refueling infrastructures. Propane vehicle specialist Ted Olsen is highly knowledgeable about the new package and can answer your questions. Please call 805-239-0616.
The government encourages the use of cleaner-burning propane for fueling motor vehicles.
Since 2006, numerous Propane Motor Fuel Tax Credits and Incentives have been offered by the IRS. As of 2008, these credits can be claimed in periods of up to weekly, making the switch to propane a very convenient decision.
Fueled by this compelling information, the Arro Autogas team is leading a campaign to support the use of propane-powered vehicles by commercial and municipal fleets. Read below for some of our endeavors into the propane motor fuel market, and to learn how you can become a user of cleaner-burning fuel.
Let Arro Autogas conserve your finances and the environment. Call Ted Olsen at Delta Liquid Energy to learn more today: 805-239-0616.

Proven Propane Success
• March 18, 2015
• Written by Blue Bird Corporation
When your district is considering purchasing a school bus, a few things are typically considered. Although initial cost is important, many forward-thinking districts are asking additional questions. How much capacity should our bus provide? How long will it last? What kind of lifetime savings can we expect?
Many districts have found that the answer is simple: Propane Autogas. Propane-powered school buses are saving thousands of dollars each year in fuel costs alone for school districts nationwide. Coupled with the savings they experience in maintenance costs, the total cost of ownership for these buses is much lower than a typical diesel-powered bus.
At the forefront of this offering is Blue Bird Corporation, a true leader in propane. Blue Bird has been manufacturing propane school buses for over eight years, and their next-generation propane solution powered by ROUSH CleanTech is a proven, viable solution to any district looking to save money. With over 5,000 of these buses on the road today, and over 50 million miles driven, these buses are a testament to the reliability and acceptance of this alternative fuel solution.
"We have engaged a long-term plan to purchase all new propane Blue Bird buses to replace our entire fleet of diesel buses." Says Joe Powers, Superintendent of Crawford AuSable School District in Grayling, Michigan. "Propane buses are cheaper to operate, they don't need the run time of a diesel...and they are quiet for the students. Overall, propane is better for the environment too, which is the responsibility of each one of us."
Blue Bird's dealer and service network are also equipped to provide support for their customers, many receiving hands-on training from ROUSH CleanTech and Ford. Blue Bird's current model propane buses also feature a 5-year, unlimited mile warranty: the industry's best warranty currently offered.
"Holland Bus Company has sold over 100 propane buses to multiple districts in our state." Says Ken Haverkate, Sales Manager of Holland Bus Sales in Michigan. "We have seen our customers experience major savings with their Blue Bird propane buses. We always hear good things about them."
"Our propane bus is the flagship offering from Blue Bird. As we continue to innovate at Blue Bird, our customers will initially see many of these new features first on our propane bus." Says Jeff Terlep, Vice President of Marketing and Product Planning for Blue Bird Corporation. "It's a very exciting time at Blue Bird and all of our employees are honored to be the fastest growing bus manufacturer in North America."
If your district is looking for ways to save money- money that can be put back into the classroom – Blue Bird's proven propane buses are the answer!

ROUSH Performance is pleased to announce the availability of the ROUSH Ford F-250s and F-350s equipped with the 6.2L V8 engine. Also available now are the Ford E-450 cutaway shuttle busses based on the Ford 5.4 liter, 2-valve V-8 engine.
Driving an F-250, F-350, or E-450 equipped with the ROUSH LPI technology, you will immediately notice there is no loss in horsepower, torque, or towing capacity, as was the case with many propane conversions of the past. The ROUSH CleanTech liquid propane autogas fuel system delivers the same factory Ford performance characteristics, warranty coverage, and serviceability as Ford’s gasoline-powered vehicles and offers:
- operating reliability and consistence in inclement weather, extreme altitudes, and other adverse conditions
- a 40 times more puncture resistant tand than factory gasoline powered vehicles
- the ability to be serviced and maintained by every Ford dealership in the country
Older kits used to rely on vapor injection, but because the ROUSH technology leaves propane in the liquid state until injection, it's 30% more powerful than the older technology. For more information, visit the Roush website here or contact Ted Olsen at (805) 239-0616.
