John Ray & Sons makes it easy to go green using propane, a high-octane, low-emissions alternative fuel. We currently deliver propane to transportation companies and local school bus fleets and offer installation of turnkey pumps and tank systems for your use.
Propane has been used as a transportation fuel since 1912 fueling forklifts, fleet vehicles, agriculture, and off-road equipment. Propane is the most widely used alternative fuel and the world’s third most common engine fuel.
Using propane autogas:
Increases energy security
Provides convenience and performance benefits
Lowers output of greenhouse gas emissions
Safety: Propane vehicle tanks are tested to 4 times the normal operating pressures and are 20 times more puncture resistant than gasoline tanks. Propane is non-toxic, non-poisonous, and has the lowest flammability range of all alternative fuels.
Protecting the Environment: Tests conducted by the US Environmental Protection Agency show that propane vehicles produce up to 60% less carbon monoxide, 15% less carbon dioxide and nearly 20% less nitrogen oxide than gas-powered vehicles. And propane is listed as an approved alternative fuel in the 1990 Clean Air Act and the Energy Policy Act of 1992.
America’s Fuel: Nearly 90% of the propane consumed in the United States is produced domestically and distributed via an established infrastructure. Using propane-powered vehicles helps to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil and strengthen national energy security.
Cost Savings: Propane is the most cost-effective alternative to conventional transportation fuels when capital costs (vehicle and infrastructure) and operation and maintenance costs are all taken into consideration. See video testimonials here.
