The Alliance AutoGas engineered single plug connector, no cut or drill fuel system, installed on a RAM ProMaster® was recently displayed at the Government Fleet Expo in Nashville.
The Ram ProMaster, in great demand in the government and service sectors and the second most popular European-style van in the market, features a 16 gal. underbody autogas tank with the conversion system. This adds to the Ram ProMaster’s front wheel drive system, and a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine. Alliance’s EPA and NFPA 58 compliant conversion system featured on the RAM ProMaster can be installed on new or in-service vehicles in half the time of other products. These systems do not require any permanent vehicle modifications.
Ed Hoffman, President of Blossman Services, Inc., the Equipment Distributor for Alliance AutoGas adds, “By far, we offer our customers the widest assortment of choices of vehicles and options for their fleets. They can experience a positive return on investment (ROI) with a partial asset life when reduced conversion costs are coupled with low, stable fuel prices. A large benefit in this system is that the product is supported with a five year, 100 000 mile warranty. We feel that strongly about its success for all fleet vehicles and we are extremely proud to unveil the propane autogas version of the RAM ProMaster. This popular vehicle further confirms our dominance in the alternative fuel work truck market.”
Truly the only one stop shop in the onroad autogas market, Alliance AutoGas has installed over 800 refuelling 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 units’ sales increasing monthly. In the past year, Alliance members collectively displaced 45 million gal. of gasoline and produced US$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.Just completed last month, Alliance embarked on a 5700 mile, 12 city, crosscountry road trip – the ‘Alliance AutoGas Coast to Coast Clean Air Ride’ – with its record setting propane autogas converted F-150 and using the ‘plug and play’ system and safe connect nozzle. 468 gal. of propane autogas were used, reducing CO2 emissions by 25% compared to a gasoline vehicle.
“The crosscountry trip was a great opportunity to demonstrate why propane autogas is the world’s number one alternative fuel. We educated citizens and fleet managers across the country on the extended range of autogas vehicles as well as the benefits of real costs savings and emissions reductions,” says Stuart Weidie, President and CEO of Blossman Gas and President of Alliance AutoGas.
