With the approach of landscaping season, we wanted to spread the word among contractors and homeowners about the many benefits of our Propane Autogas program.
If you’re still using high-priced gasoline for your lawnmowers, you could save money with Propane Autogas. With Propane Autogas, you’ll pay anywhere from $1.00-$1.50 less per gallon than gasoline. You get a big chunk of those savings because, unlike gasoline, you do not have to pay any fuel tax when you purchase Propane Autogas.
Additionally, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has passed new regulations that require manufacturers of gasoline-powered lawnmowers to adhere to emission control laws. New standards call for reducing smog-forming emissions by 35%. This is driving up the cost of gasoline lawnmowers. None of these restrictions apply to clean-burning Propane Autogas!
Get your Propane Autogas from Wilson Oil and Propane and you will also save time and improve your bottom line even further. We’ll set you up with a secure storage container and put you on a delivery schedule to suit your needs. Instead of your employees losing time stopping at a fueling station every day to fill up with gasoline, we’ll deliver to your business so you can get to your customers faster.
Your customers will be impressed too, because with Propane Autogas, you can show them you are using a domestic fuel that has lower fuel emissions than gasoline and no chance of spillage. It’s more affordable than you think! And if you don’t have any mowers running on Propane Autogas yet, we may be able to convert your existing mowers.
Here’s what local landscapers are saying:
“Wilson helped facilitate a smooth conversion to Propane Autogas. We expect to save about $7,000 per year in fuel costs. The conversion should pay for itself in just 18 months.”
—Brian Lawler, Burkholder Brothers Landscaping
“We recently purchased five new propane mowers and got a $5,000 grant from the Propane Education and Research Council. These new mowers will probably save us $100 every day. Those savings are really going to add up.”
—Buddy Caton, Excel Landscaping
