Clean Cities Success Stories: Propane Vans
Our Success Story this week takes us to Kansas, and to Renzenberger Inc—a company that has provided crew transportation services to the nation’s railroads for nearly 30 years. When fuel prices spiked, Renzenberger looked to propane to help control costs. This year their fleet added 20 propane-gasoline Ford E350 passenger vans converted with the Icom JTG system. The bi-fuel “road service” vans haul railroad crews 24/7. The company also built this onsite propane filling station.
TOM WURDACK: As we replace units if we like what we see and model pans out, we’ll continue to push propane as primary motor fuel for now and in the future.
JOHN DAVIS: The Kansas City Regional Clean Cities Coalition helped Renzenberger with technical training and resources. The company is savings of nearly two dollars a gallon by using propane. They also like the environmental benefits of the cleaner-burning fuel. So, riding the rails in the Sunflower State just got a little bit greener.
