15-Month Payback for Indiana City’s Propane Autogas Conversions


The municipal fleet in Franklin, Ind., a small community south of Indianapolis, has begun shifting some of its vehicles to run on propane autogas.

ABC affiliate rtv6 reported on the initiative earlier this week, noting that four of the city's trucks have already been converted to propane, and another 12 will follow by the end of this year. Franklin is also looking at propane autogas for the police department's vehicles.

Joe McGuinness, the city's mayor, told rtv6 that the payback period for a $3,500 conversion on a Ford F-250 is about 15 months. The price of propane is $1.69/gallon.
