Southeast Propane Autogas Development Program
The Southeast Propane Autogas Development Program is a large-scale alternative fuel project aimed at building propane infrastructure in the Southeast United States and encouraging public and private fleets to adopt propane. The program converted 1,189 vehicles from conventional gasoline to run on propane, and opened 11 propane Autogas refueling stations in 10 southeastern states. This resulted in millions of gallons of petroleum displacement. In addition, a wide-ranging communications campaign was launched to increase awareness and usage of propane in the Southeast.
