Fyda Energy Solutions has expanded its alternative fuel service offerings to include propane autogas vehicle conversions, joining the Alliance AutoGas network as the newest certified conversion center. The green technology arm of nationally recognized truck dealership Fyda Freightliner, Fyda Energy Solutions will work with a variety of fleet vehicles in the Northeast — from police cruisers to taxi cabs to cargo vans — to help them run on clean, affordable, American-made autogas.
Fyda Energy Solutions specializes in retrofitting vehicles to run on alternative fuels, as well as providing maintenance support for fleets. The company was formed with the goal of reducing our nation's dependence on foreign oil, promoting clean air and ultimately supporting the fleet industry with affordable clean fuel options.
"Fyda Energy Solutions recognizes the importance of reducing costs for fleet owners and managers, while also positively impacting national energy security and the environment," said Fyda Energy Solutions director of Business Development, Tim Hooker. "As a new partner in the Alliance AutoGas complete program, we're proud to be part of an innovative solution for cleaner energy that offers great savings for fleets."
The Fyda Energy autogas vehicle conversions utilize the bi-fuel Prins VSI system from Alliance AutoGas founding partner, American Alternative Fuel. Autogas vehicles take as long to refuel as gasoline vehicles and, because autogas is cleaner-burning than gasoline, vehicles need less maintenance and have an extended engine life.
"Fyda Energy Solutions is a leading provider of alternative fuel technologies for the fleet industry, and they will be a vital part of the Alliance mission to run more American fleets on environmentally friendly, affordable autogas," says Stuart Weidie, president of Alliance AutoGas and founder of industry coalition, Autogas for America. "Saving money on fuel without losing power or range makes autogas a smart choice for fleets—and because it's domestically produced, it's also a smart choice for enhancing U.S. energy security."
Autogas is 90 percent made in America, so fleets running on this clean fuel are doing their part to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil. Autogas is $1 less per gallon than gasoline, and the cost of autogas fueling infrastructure and conversions is significantly more affordable compared to other alternative fuels.
