Landscaping with Green and Economical Propane Autogas
With another hectic landscaping season getting here before we know it, this is an ideal time to take a closer look at the cost-saving benefits of using propane autogas to power equipment, including lawn mowers and vehicles.
If you’re a contractor still using gasoline for your lawnmowers and fleet, talk with your local New York propane company about how much you could save by switching over to propane autogas.
They may also be able to convert your existing equipment. Once they do, you’ll not only pay a lot less per gallon than gasoline, you’ll rack up additional savings because:
- you do not have to pay any fuel tax when you purchase propane autogas.
- propane-fueled mowers and vehicles require a lot less maintenance than gasoline-fueled models.
- you may qualify for cash incentives for making the switch.
Here’s another way you save
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requires manufacturers of gasoline-powered lawnmowers to adhere to emission control laws. Recent new standards call for reducing smog-forming emissions by 35%. This has driven up the cost of gasoline lawnmowers. None of these restrictions apply to clean-burning propane autogas. If you need to upgrade your equipment, think about purchasing mowers with propane autogas engines.
If you already have propane autogas mowers and vehicles, reach out to your local fuel supplier about getting set up with a secure storage container and practical delivery schedule.
Your landscaping customers will be impressed too, because with propane autogas, you can show them you are using an American-made, clean-burning fuel that has lower fuel emissions than gasoline—with no chance of spillage.
