Law Enforcement Vehicles

Law enforcement fleets, including police, security, and traffic enforcement vehicles, require a versatile, reliable fuel. Propane can meet the performance needs of high-mileage, high-runtime vehicles that range from large, powerful police cruisers to smaller, more maneuverable scooters.

Law enforcement agencies, which often custom-order vehicles, can request dedicated propane vehicles or propane bi-fuel vehicles as part of their ordering process. Law enforcement fleet operations are also conducive to centralized propane refueling. 

Propane-fueled Law Enforcement Vehicles Offer Major Benefits:

  • Reduce fleet maintenance costs and increase engine life.

  • Ensure the reliable operation of essential emergency and security vehicles.

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide, and particulate emissions in comparison to fleets fueled by gasoline.

  • Promote environmentally friendly transportation throughout the community because of their high visibility.

  • Support the use of domestically produced fuel, decreasing reliance on foreign imports.

  • Earn fleet operators an alternative fuel tax credit of 50 cents per every gallon of propane sold.

Commercial Mowing and Grounds Maintenance

Outdoor grounds maintenance equipment requires a portable, low-cost fuel that delivers sufficient power. Propane delivers equivalent energy to gasoline and diesel while reducing emissions in certain applications, such as commercial mowers, trimmers, and leaf blowers. Propane-fueled mowers may even be permitted to operate when local regulations ban gasoline mowers in certain areas in order to protect air quality.

Replacing gasoline as a fuel source in commercial and residential mowers helps increase alternative fuel consumption, decrease our nationís dependence on imported oil, and improve our air quality.  Manufacturers are also developing conversion kits that enable gasoline-fueled mowers to use propane, allowing users to save fuel costs and help clean the environment with their existing mowers.

  • Purchase or conversion rebates and incentives offered by federal and state organizations.

  • Tax credits and exemptions on refueling costs.

  • Almost 50 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and 80 percent reduction in carbon monoxide.

  • Elimination of the potential for fuel theft and spillage.

The Dollars and Sense of Propane for Your Fleet

Propane is becoming increasingly attractive as a cost savings opportunity for business fleet owners. The escalating cost of gasoline and diesel, the new emissions regulations for 2007 and 2010, and the requirements for ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) are contributing to business owners reconsidering their fleet fuel choices.

  • With more than 10 million vehicles on the road today, propane is the most-used alternative motor fuel in the world.

  • On average, fleet vehicles fueled by propane reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 18 percent.

  • Use of propane can result in lower vehicle maintenance costs, lower emissions, and fuel costs savings when compared to conventional gasoline and diesel. 

Propane is a low-emission, economic and easily used fuel that can play an important role as an alternative, non-petroleum fuel for our state and the nation.

Blue Bird Corporation Unveils Propane Powered School Bus

Blue Bird Corporation unveiled the Propane Powered Vision School Bus at the National Association of Pupil Transportation Conference and Trade Show in Kansas City, Missouri on November 7, 2006. The vehicle is Blue Birdís latest innovation in providing their customers with maximum performance and economic flexibility to meet the challenges of 2007 EPA school bus engine emission requirements. The dedicated propane bus is also an important component of the Blue Bird Corporation Alternative Fuels strategy. This is the first dedicated propane powered school bus to be offered by a major manufacturer in the United States since 2002.

School districts in Dallas and Denton, Texas, and Portland, Oregon, currently rely on propane school buses. Dallas County operates 500 propane buses. All report great success and budgetary savings.


Five Reasons to Convert Your Fleet to Propane

Propane Tax Incentives

Propane is becoming increasingly attractive as a cost savings opportunity for business fleet owners. The propane engine fuel market is poised for growth with the tax incentives passed in the 2005 Energy and Highway bills that took effect December 31, 2005 and October 1, 2006 respectively. These tax incentives create a significant opportunity for propane engine fuel markets as well as for all alternative fuels. The following information is a summary of the federal tax incentives available from the IRS. We recommend you visit the IRS web site directly for a complete review of each program.

New York State Incentives

Alternative Fuel Vehicle (AFV) Acquisition Requirements

State agencies and other affected entities must procure increasing percentages of AFVs as part of their annual vehicle acquisition plans; propane vehicles qualify under these requirements.

By 2010, 100% of all new light-duty vehicles must be AFVs, with the exception of designated specialty, police, or emergency vehicles.   (Reference Executive Order 9, 2008, Executive Order 142, 2005 (PDF 238KB), and (Executive Order 111, 2001).  The following is quoted from Executive Order 111, section V:

V. Procurement of Clean Fuel Vehicles

State Agencies and other affected entities shall procure increasing percentages of alternative-fuel vehicles, including hybrid-electric vehicles, as part of their annual vehicle acquisition plans.  By 2005, at least 50 percent of new light-duty vehicles acquired by each agency and affected entity shall be alternative-fueled vehicles, and by 2010, 100 percent of all new light-duty vehicles shall be alternative-fueled vehicles, with the exception of specialty, police or emergency vehicles as designated by DOB.  State agencies and other affected entities that operate medium- or heavy-duty vehicles shall implement strategies to reduce petroleum consumption and emissions by using alternative fuels and improving fleet fuel efficiency.

ROUSH Liquid Propane Injection vehicles meet all requirements as an AFV, in the State of New York.  As such, ROUSH Propane vehicles are eligible for funding up to 75% of the differential cost versus conventional fuel, for municipal and government agency purchases.  NYSERDA is charged with administering grants to NY State Agencies.
