Restaurants, hotels, resorts, dry cleaners, greenhouses, farms, offices and warehouses are among the many businesses in Michigan that rely on propane.
Propane remains one of the most economical sources of heat for large warehouses and factories. Because of its low, nontoxic emissions, propane is also the fuel of choice for powering indoor forklifts, torches and welders.
Propane is also the best choice for backup generators for businesses since it can be stored indefinitely, and will not deteriorate over time (like gasoline) or gel up in winter (like diesel).
Additionally, more than 60% of alternative-fueled vehicles nationwide run on propane Autogas, including buses, fleet trucks, forklifts, lawnmowers and farm tractors. Propane Autogas is the third most popular vehicle fuel, next to gasoline and diesel.
Many vehicle manufacturers now make bi-fuel (or dual-fuel) models that run equally well on either propane Autogas or gasoline, and all of the major commercial lawn mower manufactures now supply models that run on propane Autogas.
