Agricultural Applications

Why Use Propane?

If you’ve been in the agricultural industry for a long time, you might be tempted to think diesel is the go-to fuel source.  But, businesses in the agricultural industry benefit from propane because it:

  • Often comes with tax credits, depending on how you use it
  • Costs less per gallon than gas, while burning at a similar efficiency
  • Is often exempt from taxes
  • Isn’t subject to the tightening environmental guidelines like diesel engines, which also increases costs
  • Is friendly to the environment – it emits 24% less nitrogen oxide and 60% less carbon monoxide
