Now 18 Police Vehicles Fuel with Propane Autogas

In 2018, Todd Smith, city administrator for the town of Greeneville, Tenn., wanted to reduce the town’s expenses, as well as the town fleet’s impact on the environment. Smith researched the potential benefits of adding an autogas program and found that by working with Alliance AutoGas (AAG), they could purchase fuel at a fixed rate, have reduced maintenance requirements and reduce the town’s carbon footprint.

“After confirming those key benefits, we knew this was a program to implement,” says Smith.

Greeneville converted three of its law enforcement Ford Explorers to bi-fuel engines. The primary advantage of a bi-fuel system over a dedicated “monofuel” system is its elimination of range anxiety when compared to other alternative fuel vehicles.
