More and more businesses are choosing propane for a wide range of applications, including propane autogas, lawn care equipment, forklifts, ground service equipment, and heat or power generators. Propane delivers cost savings, dependability and performance, and it reduces environmental impact. Propane costs less than gasoline and diesel, and current government fuel tax incentives can further reduce the cost.

Lawn care equipment

  • Propane-powered mowers, leaf blowers and trimmers can help lawn care professionals reduce the cost of doing business and improve air quality.
  • The cost of investing in this type of equipment can be offset through the lower cost of fueling and purchase incentives.
  • According to the Propane Education & Research Council, propane-fueled commercial mowers produce almost 50 percent fewer greenhouse gas emissions and 80 percent less carbon monoxide than a similar mower running on gasoline.


  • Propane forklifts produce 19 percent fewer emissions than gasoline forklifts and 7 percent fewer emissions than diesel models.
  • They maintain consistent, full power during operation with faster ground speeds than electric forklifts.
  • Propane forklifts can be refueled in much less time than is needed to switch or charge a battery for an electric forklift.


Standby generators fueled by propane can help businesses prevent loss and damage that can result from prolonged power outages. Primary power generators that run on propane simultaneously produce electricity and heat for commercial buildings. Business owners can ensure electric reliability while reducing energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
