Considering a fleet upgrade?

Switching from diesel to propane not only benefits the environment; it may also improve your bottom line. With up to 56,000 miles of pipeline and more than 6,000 retail dealer locations, propane is readily available throughout the country. Propane is also the only alternative fuel with fueling stations located in every state. Arro Autogas wants to save you money when upgrading your fleet; click here to visit our Savings page. 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.

Pump up jobs with the Propane Gas Act

We all want to create more jobs in our country, so it's time we get up and do something about it!  Let's get behind the Propane Gas Act, legislation that will help create 30,000 to 40,000 new jobs for Americans while reducing our dependance on foreign oil and saving us major 'green,' both on paper and in the environment.  Listen to PropanePrincess speak about it:



Blue Bird Propane Powered School Bus

The Blue Bird Propane-Powered Vision® school bus is a conventional Type C school bus which runs on propane instead of diesel fuel. Unlike “retrofit” alternative fuel systems of the past, the Propane-Powered Vision is a fully integrated and purposely built Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) bus, engineered to the same exacting standards as other Blue Bird buses. Designed and built for maximum quality and reliability, the Propane-Powered Vision® meets all applicable School Bus Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (CMVSS) while offering several distinct advantages, including:

  • Meets Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and California Air Resources Board (CARB) certification requirements for the 2010 production year
  • Provides a safe, attractive and viable alternative fuel choice amidst rising diesel fuel prices
  • Allows for operators to receive tax incentives for purchasing both propane-powered school buses and propane fuel, including a 50-cent rebate on every gallon of propane purchased
  • Lowers operating and maintenance costs

In 2009, DLE built California’s largest propane refueling station for Student Transportation of America (STA) in Los Angeles. The station boasts a 15,000 gallon propane storage tank with four refueling dispensers and has the capacity to fuel 77 conventional style Blue Bird Corporation Propane Powered Vision® School buses in less than three hours.

Learn more about both the features that make the Blue Bird Vision School Bus model unique (link to Vision overview) as well as the advantages offered by its propane platform here.


The ROUSCH CleanTech Micro Bird G5 School Bus

There isn’t any more precious cargo than a child, and school bus companies take every precaution to ensure the safety of the children they transport on a daily basis. Micro Bird, Inc. has given a ringing endorsement to propane by incorporating the ROUSH CleanTech liquid propane autogas fuel system into the new 30-passsenger Micro Bird® by Girardin, a Type A School, Multi-Function School Activity Bus (MFSAB) and Commercial bus.

  • is a fully integrated, dedicated engine system designed in complete harmony with the gasoline engine.
  • utilizes fuel that is 90% domestically produced, reducing our dependence on imports.
  • provides the best balance of fuel economy, performance and emissions.

Whether it's meeting companywide initiatives or government standards, fleet managers face many challenges. GM is thinking ahead with its fully integrated, factory installed, single-invoice CleanFUEL USA LPG system, backed by GM's 5-year/100,000 mile Powertrain Warranty. Click here to learn more.



Roush Ford F-250, F-350, and Ford E-450's

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.
