Basics of Propane and Finding Propane in Dallas

Using and Finding Propane in Dallas

Did you know that certain vehicles can be fueled by propane? When you consider that propane also goes by the name of autogas or liquefied petroleum gas it becomes clearer that this alternative fuel is a largely untapped resource.

The Energy Policy Act of 1992 identified propane as an alternative fuel that could be used to reduce the U.S.’s dependence on foreign oil. This colorless, odorless liquid is stored in a pressurized tank, and goes from a liquid to a combustible gas once the pressure is released. The result is a high octane, nontoxic fuel that burns cleaner and costs less.

Despite its exceptional performance, cost and availability only 2% of propane in the U.S. is used for fuel in vehicles. It is more commonly used to provide heat in homes or for powering appliances and equipment. Organizations like the Dallas-Fort Worth Clean Cities Coalition (DFWCCC) are currently working to bring more attention to propane as a transportation fuel source.
