WASHINGTON, D.C. — The propane industry recently launched the latest version of a fleet cost calculator designed to help fleet managers make a business case for operating propane-powered vehicles.

The calculator, available on the Propane Education and Research Council’s (PERC) Website at www.propanecouncil.org/fleetcalculator/, is now easier to use and features updated information.

“This updated online tool will help fleet operators understand how much they can save by switching from conventional fuel to propane,” PERC Vice President Brian Feehan said. “It will be especially useful for operators of buses, taxicabs, local delivery trucks and other on-road fleets.”

Fleet managers can log onto the fleet calculator to analyze cost savings and how they are affected by fuel prices, vehicle fuel economy, initial vehicle price, local and state rebates, and federal tax credits.

The fleet calculator also allows users to estimate costs over a 10-year period, factoring in revenue from the sale of fleet vehicles.
