A new report commissioned by the Mississippi Propane Gas Association concludes that propane autogas offers "numerous benefits" to fleets over gasoline and diesel.

The study, which was conducted by the Stennis Institute at Mississippi State University, cited propane autogas as offering a lower cost, domestically sourced fuel that is widely available.

The study also reported a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions as a benefit to fleet users. Because propane autogas is a cleaner burning fuel, vehicles that use it have engines with extended lifecycles. A engine burning propane autogas typically would last twice as long as a comparable gasoline engine.

Maintenance intervals can be extended because of the lack of particles and corrosion found in oil changes of gasoline-burning engines.
