Blossman Gas Fleet Benefitting from Propane Autogas

Blossman Gas, the 8th largest propane dealer in the U.S., is increasing the number of autogas vehicles in its fleet with the purchase of three new autogas bobtails. These bobtails, purchased from ROUSH CleanTech, will help Blossman to increase the significant fuel cost savings and substantial carbon emission reductions of their current autogas fleet of gaseous fuel vehicles.

Propane autogas provides numerous benefits for our nation’s fleet vehicles,” notes Stuart Weidie, President and CEO of Blossman Gas and President of Alliance AutoGas. “Blossman Gas has made the commitment to run our own fleet on autogas and therefore has the ability to share real data and experiences, which enhances our ability to convince prospective customers that it is a cost effective, clean and domestic fuel that is available right here, right now” adds Weidie.

Currently, ninety-five percent of the Blossman fleet running on gaseous fuels has been converted to propane autogas within the last two years, netting a cost savings to the company of over $976,000. Additionally, their fleet has reduced greenhouse gas emissions by over 96 tons since converting to autogas.

Added to the fleet of work and service vehicles are the three new F-650 Ford ROUSH CleanTech bobtails. The Ford F-650 ROUSH CleanTech units have a 6.8L V-10 engine that will be dedicated to use propane autogas. These units will be deployed this month with a 2600 gallon barrel for the sole purpose of delivering propane gas to Blossman’s residential and commercial accounts.
