Q: How does propane autogas affect routine maintenance costs?

A: The maintenance on propane autogas vehicles is often compared to gasoline models in terms of its simplicity. No additional fluids, filters, exhaust after treatment or other maintenance parts are needed to meet emission standards because propane is naturally cleaner than conventional fuels. This helps keep maintenance costs low.

Plus, propane autogas vehicles warm up quickly and operate about 50 percent quieter, which increases safety and decreases driver fatigue compared to diesel.
