Propane goes beyond the residential uses that traditionally come to mind. Not only is propane a viable energy source for heating your home and enjoying outdoor living, it can also be used to power on-road and off-road fleets. Propane fueled vehicles perform better than traditional diesel and gasoline counterparts while improving your return on investment. There’s no sacrificing torque or horsepower, no need for additional fluids or filters, and, due to its cleaner-burning nature, propane lessens your environmental footprint.
Landscape Managers and Golf Course Superintendents can keep their greens freshly cut while saving on costs with propane. There are currently over 150 different types of commercial mowers available as well as conversion kits for traditionally fueled mowers. More information about incentives and a full list of manufacturers can be found on The Propane Education and Research Council’s website.
With propane, school district fleets can enjoy an ease of adoption. Propane powered school buses run very similarly to the traditional diesel vehicles that drivers are familiar with and include the added bonus of keeping the air around our children clean. School bus manufacturers offer Type A and Type C propane powered buses that are available NOW and approved by both the Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board.
With options available from original engine manufacturers and conversion kit installers alike, there is a van or truck style to fit your fleet’s needs. A full list of currently available medium-duty vehicles can be viewed here or by visiting the Propane Education and Research Council’s website.
ARRO Autogas partners with service station owners to provide publicly accessible propane dispensers throughout California and Nevada. ARRO Autogas supplies and constructs a propane tank, propane dispenser, FuelMaster fuel track management system, the propane itself, and all other equipment associated with the dispensing of propane at gas station locations owned and operated by our service station partners. This propane equipment is for the use of certified ARRO Autogas customers 24-hours a day, seven days a week and for the general public during the station’s operating hours. Station operating hours will vary by location, please see our list of stations for more information about the station located in your area.

A second option in propane refueling infrastructure is to construct your own private infrastructure right in your fleet yard. This alleviates the need for your drivers to be potentially re-routed to refuel at one of our service station partners’ facilities. ARRO Autogas representatives will assist you in choosing the proper refueling equipment that is right for your fleet. We offer financial options with regards to this investment, we will construct and connect all equipment so that it is fully integrated, and we will maintain the equipment so that is functions properly, every time your vehicles need to refuel. The best part about having your private refueling infrastructure is that it is scalable so when your propane fleet grows so can your infrastructure!
Benefits of private infrastructure include:
ARRO Autogas offers a mobile refueling unit complete with all the necessary propane dispensing equipment for fleets to use while their private, on-site refueling infrastructure is being constructed. This temporary option allows fleets to purchase propane powered vehicles before their private infrastructure is built. Often the construction process for propane refueling stations can be lengthy and our portable, mobile refueling infrastructure offers fleets the ability to start using their propane fleet vehicles right away.
ARRO Autogas over twenty locations throughout Southern California and Southern Nevada. Each location is equipped with a propane dispenser, a propane tank, and a Fuel Track Management System called FuelMaster.
An added advantage to being a service station partner with ARRO Autogas is the increased sales you may receive from the general public who may be looking for a place to refill their personal propane cylinders. Your attendants will be properly trained in the use of the propane dispensing equipment and all sales resulting from cylinders filled by your attendants for the general public are yours. Station operating hours for the general public will vary by location as station owners have the flexibility to set their convenience store hours as they see fit.
