Benefits of Converting to Propane
Autogas is a cleaner burning fuel with non-toxic exhaust. By using it for your small engine, you are increasing the engine life and lowering your maintenance. You will notice an improved engine performance with lower fuel costs per operating hours. One of the benefits you may not notice during your day-to-day is the significant reductions in air pollution. The conversion system is simple and easy to install. We can get your small engines up and running in no time.
Propane can reduce operating costs. Landscape contractors who have switched to propane report immediate cost savings minimal of 30%-40% regardless of gasoline costs.
Top landscape contractors trust propane to stand up to the toughest jobs daily. Twelve of the top mower brands offer propane-fueled options.
Propane reduces harmful carbon emissions compared with conventional fuels. In many places, propane mowers can be used on ozone action days when other mowers can’t and low-carbon propane often gives contractors an edge when they bid on jobs.
EASY ON-SITE REFUELING
Propane offers proven refueling options delivered right to your door. No more trips to the gas station means more time for your crews to do the jobs that pay.
REDUCED FUEL SPILLS & PILFERAGE
With its closed fuel system, propane saves money and protects the environment by virtually eliminating costly, harmful spills and by dramatically reducing fuel theft.
ABUNDANT SUPPLY PRODUCED IN THE U.S.
Propane is made in America, and we have plenty of it. In fact, the United States exports enough propane annually to run the nation’s entire fleet of commercial zero-turn radius mowers.
“There were several benefits in transitioning to propane-powered lawnmowers. For starers, because propane is deemed by the EPA to be an approved alternative fuel, propane-powered mowers can be used even when Austin’s “Ozone Action Days” prohibit the use of gas-powered equipment. That means more days out mowing lawns-and making money.”

“Our 20 mowers are running much better on propane autogas, the savings are tremendous and worth every penny of investment in the conversions.”
Steven and Marica Johnson, Johnson Lawn Care, Ranger, GA
” I transferred our mowers to propane for the 2013 cutting season. First full month saved us$400. Since then we’ve been averaging 20% savings or $300 per month. The propane conversion cut service time to 50 hours from 100 hours- saving labor and cost of materials, such as oil filters. All of my mowers are running cleaner and we’ve not lost any power.”
