ASHEVILLE, N.C., Feb. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alliance AutoGas announces a new agreement with global autogas technology leader Prins Alternative Fuel Systems of the Netherlands: Alliance will be the U.S. distributor for Prins autogas technologies. Simultaneously, Alliance AutoGas has unveiled its U.S. Autogas Technology Center located in Asheville, N.C.
Prins has awarded Alliance AutoGas with U.S. distribution rights to its line of fleet-tested autogas vehicle conversion equipment, including vapor and liquid injection systems, along with direct injection and diesel blend technology. Prins Direct LiquiMax system was recognized with the Automechanika Innovation award and the Green Directory award in September 2012.
"Alliance AutoGas has been instrumental in bringing autogas, the most viable alternative vehicle fuel, to American fleets - and we are proud to expand our relationship," says Bart van Aerle, CEO of Prins. "As Alliance continues to deliver America's only complete alternative fuel solution, we expect to see more and more U.S. fleets switching over to this cleaner, more affordable fuel."
Propane autogas is the most widely used alternative fuel in the world, powering 18 million vehicles globally. U.S. fleets running on autogas currently save around $1.75 per gallon on fuel costs versus gasoline, and autogas is also a cleaner fuel. Ninety-eight percent of the U.S. propane autogas supply is made in America, so autogas fleets are doing their part to reduce our nation's dependence on foreign oil. Alliance AutoGas has expanded to include 42 states and all of Canada, with fleet customers displacing tons of harmful emissions and saving thousands of dollars every month.
