PERC adds propane autogas cost calculator

Posted on October 27, 2014

The Propane Education & Research Council released a suite of cost calculator tools for customers in three of the industry’s fastest-growing markets, including on-road fleets.

The calculator estimates potential fuel savings and ROI with clean, American-made propane when compared with conventional fuels like gasoline and diesel.

“One of the main reasons fleets, agribusiness operators or commercial landscapers consider making a switch to an alternative fuel like propane is simple: They want to improve their bottom line,” said Tucker Perkins, PERC’s chief business development officer. “With these new applications, equipment dealers, propane providers, and customers can easily calculate fuel costs with propane specific to their market and operations. And with the online and mobile tools, they can share results on the spot via email.”

The PERC cost calculator series currently includes the Propane Autogas Calculator and is conveniently available in multiple different platforms:

  • The Web tools can be operated with Internet access online at propanecostcalculator.com.
  • The calculators can be downloaded as a desktop tool for users to complete without any Internet or mobile access.
  • Downloadable worksheets can be printed and filled in by hand for users without computer access.
  • Mobile applications are available for phones and tablets in app stores for Apple and Android devices. from the applications can also easily be shared by email.
