The new AutoGas LPG Evacuation Pump from Blossman Services is said to be the first of its kind for the U.S. market.

“This one of a kind, patent pending, Autogas LPG Evacuation System can evacuate a fuel pump-equipped LPI [liquid propane injection] vehicle tank filled to 80% with 44 useable propane gallons in 1.5 hours to zero PSI tank pressure without venting any propane into the atmosphere,” states a release.

Workplace Efficiency

“Autogas fleets and trained autogas technicians now have a service tool available that allows them to safely work on their vehicles on their own timelines,” Blossman says.

The compressed air-powered pump may also be used to transfer propane fuel from one vehicle to another, or to a separate propane storage vessel.

UL-Certified GPV14 LPG Unit for the U.S. and Canada

Blossman Services says that it’s now the sole North American distributor of Staubli’s UL-certified GPV14 LPG nozzle for propane autogas vehicle fueling. Blossman handles equipment supply for the Alliance AutoGas network.

Just like fueling with gasoline: Staubli's UL-certified GPV14 LPG propane autogas nozzle features quick auto-connect and ‘80% faster fueling compared to natural gas and diesel,’ says Blossman Services, now its exclusive distributor for North America.

Just like fueling with gasoline: Staubli’s UL-certified GPV14 LPG propane autogas nozzle features quick auto-connect and ‘80% faster fueling compared to natural gas and diesel,’ says Blossman Services, now its exclusive distributor for North America.

The Staubli nozzle is lightweight, ergonomic, “and as easy to use as a standard gasoline nozzle,” Blossman says. It is designed for “completely safe maneuverability,” with automatic operation that minimizes the risk of mishandling.

Features of the Staubli nozzle include quick auto-connect, 80% faster fueling compared to natural gas and diesel, auto shut-off at 80% capacity, “and an auto-disconnect that stops the flow of propane should you drive off while still connected.”

‘A Huge Difference’

In addition, Blossman says, no gloves or protective eyewear are required when using the nozzle. “The quick connect technology brings autogas refueling into the modern age at the fuel pump,” the company says.

“It’s a huge difference in what it looks like, sounds like, and feels like to the user,” Propane Education & Research Council chief business development officer Tucker Perkins says in a Blossman release.


No Gloves, No Goggles

“No gas comes from the nozzle unless it’s connected,” Perkins says, “and when you release the nozzle handle another feature becomes evident: a fugitive emissions reduction of almost 80% with every vehicle refueling stop. No longer are gloves required; no longer are goggles required. It’s a very positive experience.”

“The fleets associated with Alliance AutoGas will now have the security that vehicle operators will be using the safest autogas nozzle in the world – the Staubli, which emits only .4 ccs of fuel, a reduction of 1.5cc, when disconnecting,” said Alliance AutoGas president Stuart Weidie.
