“In early 2013, the company chose propane autogas,” CleanFuel USA says. “It now has 58 autogas-fueled trucks on the road and ten more on the way.”

“Right from the start, the economic benefits were attractive: lower fuel costs, fuel tax credits, decreased air pollution and fuel incentive programs and grants to offset conversion costs,” Fashion Glass executive VP Mike Poe says in a CleanFuel USA blog post.

Lower Maintenance, Longer Life

“There were also lower engine maintenance costs and longer engine life from the cleaner-burning propane fuel compared to our prior diesel truck fleet,” Poe said. “We are very pleased to have met our annual fuel cost savings estimate in the first year of propane autogas for our converted truck fleet.”

Fashion Glass plans to continue to convert all trucks as they are ordered,” CleanFuel USA says. “As well, it installed a publically accessible propane autogas station at its corporate headquarters in Desoto, Texas.”

Fashion Glass employs more than 200 people in four Texas locations.
