PERC focuses on total cost of ownership for propane autogas vehicles

INDIANAPOLIS. The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) is playing a prominent role this week at the NTEA’s 2015 Work Truck Show as it highlights the total cost of ownership for propane autogas vehicles in several displays.

PERC experts are on hand to discuss why propane autogas is the proper fit for work trucks. Using the group’s Propane Autogas Cost Calculator, fleets can calculate their TCO.

“Propane autogas is unique in that it offers a strong ROI for fleets and a low total cost of ownership over the lifetime of the vehicle,” said Tucker Perkins, PERC chief business development officer. “When fleet managers consider maintenance, fuel costs, and uptime on our growing portfolio of medium-duty vehicles, they understand why fleets like UPS and DISH have made a switch from gasoline and diesel to a clean alternative fuel like propane autogas.”

PERC will be co-hosting press conferences this week with Blossman Services,, which will make a customer announcement about its Ford Transit conversion package, and Roush CleanTech.

PERC is also hosting a breakout session for the Green Truck Summit, “Fueling a Competitive Edge: New Propane Autogas Technology & Offerings.”
