After receiving approval as an alternative fuel under the 1990 Clean Air Act, propane autogas has become the most popular alternative fuel in the country, powering approximately 350,000 vehicles in the U.S.Compared to gasoline, propane autogas exhaust contains 60 to 70 percent fewer smog-producing hydrocarbons and yields 12 percent less carbon dioxide and about 20 percent less nitrous oxide, both greenhouse gases. Passage of the Propane GAS Act would lead to an annual savings of 4.2 to 6 million tons of carbon dioxide, according to the ICF International report. Switching to propane autogas from gasoline will also cut emissions of toxins and carcinogens such as benzene and toluene by up to 96 percent.
