Charter Fuels and Alliance AutoGas partner The Motor Company have converted a Transport Ford E-350 van to propane autogas for Tom Tarmann of Marinette, Wis., an owner of a medical paratransit service.
Tarmann's autogas vehicle conversion was almost entirely funded by a $5,000 grant from the state of Wisconsin. Tarmann also plans to convert a 2009 Ford Taurus to autogas through Alliance AutoGas, with fueling from Charter Fuels and vehicle conversion through The Motor Company.
‘As part of the Alliance AutoGas network, we were able to work with Tarmann to coordinate everything he needed to switch to autogas, including the vehicle conversion, convenient fueling, and operational and safety training,’ says Bill Langlois of Charter Fuels. “Autogas fleets are saving around $1.50 per gallon on fuel costs right now, and in this economy, that really adds up for a small business fleet that's getting off the ground.”
