SALEM, OR – Blue Star Gas, working with Alliance Autogas, hosted a Salem “Ride & Drive” event that featured five propane-autogas-fueled emergency and law enforcement vehicles.

The event was open to the community. Area residents and law enforcement professionals attended the event to test drive the vehicles, which included a Ford Crown Victoria, a Ford Expedition, a Ford Escape, a Chevy 3500, and a Dodge Charger.

Alliance Autogas’ Darren Engle, director of marketing, gave a presentation on the benefits of using propane autogas as a fuel during a barbecue lunch.

“We really wanted to let local law enforcement get behind the wheel of a few autogas‐powered vehicles so they could see what a comparable performance they have to traditional gasoline vehicles,” said Engle.
