Long Beach, California is the host of the 2012 Alternative Clean Transportation (ACT) Expo, an event that showcases alternatively fueled vehicles. One of the participants is ROUSH CleanTech, who will be speaking with consumers and fleet managers to discuss propane autogas. The company’s vice president of sales and marketing, Todd Mouw, will be speaking on May 16th during the “Gaseous Fuel Upfitters” panel. He says that their customers are seeing savings on maintenance and fuel costs without compromising range or performance.

“Fleet managers can talk to our customers who have not only realized the benefits of propane autogas, but after experiencing this zero compromise alternative fuel, are coming back for more,” said Mouw whose company is exhibiting in booth 439.

California has approved the use of propane autogas and one of ROUSH CleanTech’s customers is ThyssenKrupp Elevator who will be announcing the deployment of eight propane autogas vehicles in LA. The company will also deploy eight vehicles in San Diego with plans to operate 10 percent of its fleet with propane by 2015.

Tom Armstrong, director of fleet at ThyssenKrupp Elevator added, “When we laid out all the fuels available today, there was only one alternative fuel source that met all of our needs, and that was propane autogas.”

The ACT Expo takes place May 15-17 at the Long Beach Convention Center.
