Autogas Event on March 27 Kicks Off AltCarExpo Texas

PropaneEngineFuelSummitThe Summit, now in its fourth year, is being held March 27 at the Irving Convention Center in Irving, Texas.

Organizers of the 2014 Propane Engine Fuel Summit are urging Texas municipalities, school districts and businesses to come discuss the benefits – and challenges – of fueling with propane autogas.

Representatives of the City of Fort Worth, Dallas County Schools, Dallas-Fort Worth Clean Cities and Northwest Propane Gas will discuss propane autogas fueling infrastructure, economic and environmental factors, and equipment.

‘Driving Job Creation’

“As the leading alternative fuel in the United States, propane autogas has come a long way since it first appeared as an engine fuel in 1913,” says Curtis Donaldson, managing director and founder of Georgetown, Texas-based CleanFuel USA. He’s to discuss The Future of Propane Autogas.

“The possibilities for this fuel are just getting started,” Donaldson said in an event release. “This American-made resource is saving more than just cash at the pump. It’s driving job creation and energy security by keeping our fuel dollars within our own economy.”

The Texas AltCar Conference & Expo will be held March 27-29 at the Irving Convention Center.
