Price Right Automotive Group of Sterling Heights and Dewitt, MI, recently joined Alliance AutoGas and its growing network of independent propane marketers and independent conversion centers throughout the US as its newest authorized conversion center.
Price Right Automotive Group (PRAG) is a diverse group that includes retail in auto and RVs, service, commercial fleet propane installation and commercial fleet vehicle upstream remarketing. With a history of working with commercial fleets to help achieve clean energy goals, PRAG is a perfect fit to join the Alliance AutoGas Network.
PRAG is a sister company to Pro Leasing Services (PLS). PLS partners strengthen their ability to serve those in commercial fleet management, rentals and automotive retail in North America. PLS was one of the first in the industry to recognize the potential for “green,” or alternative-fuel vehicles, including those powered by propane. Other affiliations and partnerships include: Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) and the Clean Energy Coalition.
“We are happy to see Price Right Automotive Group join the Alliance,” notes Stuart Weidie, president of Alliance AutoGas (AAG). AAG coordinates propane autogas vehicle conversions, installs refueling infrastructure and provides ongoing vehicle maintenance support and training through a network of member companies and conversion centers throughout North America.
Truly the only one stop shop in the on-road autogas market, Alliance AutoGas has installed over 800 refueling facilities in the US and Canada. In addition, Alliance has converted or participated in supplying autogas to more than 10,000 propane autogas vehicles and buses in North America, helping them run on clean-burning propane with unit sales increasing monthly. In the past year, Alliance members collectively displaced 45 million gallons of gasoline and produced $70 million in fuel cost savings for the 550 fleets they service. Key innovations in the marketplace developed by Alliance AutoGas are their engineered systems that can be installed in only a few hours. These systems do not require any permanent vehicle modifications. All wiring is “plug and play,” with everything bracketed and designed to be installed without any drilling or fabrication. By deploying these features, labor times and conversion costs are significantly reduced. Recent innovations in dispensers and filling hardware, such as the ultra-low emission filling nozzle and the “Safe Connect” vehicle valve, give the operator the ability to fill the vehicle faster than gasoline without the need for any personal protective devices.
