Free ROI-calculator apps for LPG fueling

Oct. 23, 2014

The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) today released a suite of online and mobile calculator apps-- available free of charge— to enable vehicle owners to determine the return on investment and fuel savings they may realize by converting from gasoline or diesel to LPG fuel.

“One of the main reasons truck fleets, agribusiness operators or commercial landscapers consider making a switch to an alternative fuel like propane is simple-- they want to improve their bottom line,” said Tucker Perkins, PERC’s chief business development officer.

“With these new applications, equipment dealers, propane providers, and customers can easily calculate fuel costs with propane specific to their market and operations,” he added. “And with the online and mobile tools, they can share results on the spot via email.”

The PERC cost-calculator series currently includes the Propane Irrigation Engine Calculator, Propane Mower Calculator, and Propane Autogas Calculator, which are offered in multiple platforms.

The web-based tools can be operated with Internet access online at Or the calculators can be downloaded as a desktop tool for users to complete without any Internet or mobile access. Downloadable worksheets can be printed and filled in by hand for users without computer access.

In addition, mobile applications are available for phones and tablets in app stores for Apple and Android devices.

PERC noted that results from the applications can be easily shared by email.
