Bit by bit, our world is becoming greener,
and a major part of the equation is the rapid strengthening or
replacement of our current transportation systems by more fuel-efficient
and environmentally friendly alternatives.
Quebec’s Alliance AutoPropane, Canada’s fastest growing
network of certified propane/gasoline engine conversion centers, premier
equipment providers, and autogas fuel providers, has been leading the
way by enabling a growing number of vehicle owners to convert
immediately to propane autogas, an affordable clean-burning alternative
fuel that substantially reduces greenhouse gases and other harmful
emissions. With over 23 million vehicles worldwide running on autogas
today, it is the third most widely used vehicle fuel in the world behind
conventional gasoline and diesel.
In its mission to be at the cutting edge of advancements in
the field and to promote engine conversions at a large scale, Alliance
AutoPropane attended the National Propane Gas Association Southeastern
Convention & International Propane Expo in Atlanta, Georgia, which
took place from the 11th to the 13th of April 2015, member of Alliance AutoGas,
a North American consortium of more than 110 members. On April 16th, 17th, and 18th

Transportation is one of the major global consumers of
energy, representing 20-25% of aggregate energy consumption and CO2
emissions. Autogas is among the lowest total carbon emissions fuels,
showing a 20% reduction of carbon monoxide, a 40% reduction of nitrogen
oxides, and more than 10% reduction of carbon dioxide versus gasoline or
diesel. Whether improving the environment is a corporate priority or a
sensible an answer to growing consumer concerns, converting vehicles to
autogas allows majors transportation companies to make instant
improvements in their sector and to highlight their ‘green’ fleets in
their branding messages.
Alliance AuroPropane recently added two new autogas fueling
stations to its Quebec network, bringing the total to fourteen. The
stations are located at 40 Boul. St. Joseph, in Lachine, and at 100, St.

The organization is also inviting automobile journalist to
