- For larger fleets, Alliance AutoGas certified conversion technicians can also train your mechanical team to perform in-house conversions
A Safe Fuel
Autogas is a safe, proven and reliable fuel. Thousands of school buses and taxicabs across the U.S. are already safely fueled by autogas, partly because autogas is intrinsically safer than many other fuels. A properly installed autogas tank can actually add to the structural integrity of a vehicle.
- Autogas tanks are 20 times as puncture-resistant as gasoline tanks and can can withstand 4 times the pressure.
- The lower pressure required for storage makes autogas safer to maintain than CNG.
- Autogas vehicles tanks are constructed from carbon steel under code developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
- Properly installed autogas vehicle fuel tanks can actually add to the structural integrity of a vehicle.
Additional Safety Features
- It has a lower flammability range than conventional gasoline, decreasing probability of accidental combustion.
- The onsite autogas fueling station has a lock-off valve that automatically shuts off the flow of propane autogas at the tank if any pressure drop is detected anywhere throughout the system.
- Unlike gasoline, diesel, methanol and ethanol, autogas is nontoxic, nonpoisonous and insoluble in water.
- Should a rare accidental release of autogas occur, it would dissipate into the atmosphere with no harmful contaminants released into the air, soil or water.
