Propane Autogas Made It Happen with Just Five Cabs
The Taxi Cab Company of Tyler reduced its fuel costs by $10,578 in 2012 by running five vehicles on clean propane autogas, says the Propane Council of Texas. The firm made the change to propane two years ago.
“I chose propane autogas because of the low cost of fuel, reasonable price of infrastructure, the safety factor and the positive environmental benefits,” said Tyler Taxi president Jamal Moharer says in a Council release. The company has two sedans, two vans and a shuttle bus running on propane autogas.
“With our Fueling Texas campaign, we’re spreading the word about this clean, economical, domestically-produced and widely available fuel to help more Texas businesses save on fuel costs and contribute to clean air,” said Jackie Mason, Council education and marketing director.
700 Propane Autogas Stations in Texas
There are more than 700 propane autogas fueling stations in Texas, according to the Tyler release. In addition to that Tyler Taxi is installing its own.
Tyler is in Smith County, east of Dallas.
With more than 700 propane autogas fueling stations across the state, propane autogas is widely available. In addition to Tyler’s public refueling station, Taxi Cab Company of Tyler has built a private refueling station at their headquarters. Many companies with autogas vehicle fleets choose to install their own station due to the refueling infrastructure’s affordability and easy installation process.
