Chicago-Area Event to Teach Benefits of Propane Autogas


The Chicago Area Clean Cities Coalition, along with the Propane Education & Research Council, is inviting fleet managers, school administrators, vehicle providers, equipment manufacturers, fuel providers and the public to attend a free workshop in Illinois about the advantages of powering vehicles with propane autogas.

The program, called “Propane Power in the Preserves,” will be held on Thursday, Aug. 2, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Sagawau Environmental Learning Center in St. Lemont. Propane autogas vehicles will also be available for test drives.

“There are many fleets throughout the Chicago area using propane to power their vehicles, including passenger vehicles, pick-up trucks, police cars, delivery vehicles, cargo vans, shuttles and school buses,” says John Walton, chair of Chicago Area Clean Cities. “Using propane to power vehicles has environmental and economic benefits. It’s a safe and easy-to-use fuel that has lower tailpipe emissions. It also is quieter than diesel combustion and costs less than diesel or gasoline.”

The program is open to anyone who wants to learn about the advantages of using propane autogas as a transportation fuel. More information can be found here.

Propane is kind of cleaner than gas, is refinery waste. Why not simply go electric?
