December Question of the Month - Answered!

December 20, 2016

Question of the Month: How is fuel economy determined and reported for alternative fuel vehicles?

While alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) fuel economy testing is largely similar to that of conventional fuels, the EPA makes some adjustments to account for different vehicle technology and fuel energy content. By tailoring AFV fuel economy testing and reporting, the EPA is able to provide apples-to-apples comparisons and allow consumers to make informed decisions.

Alabama Prisons Adopt Propane, Establish Fuel Savings for Years to Come

September 30, 2016

Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC)

Sept. 14, 2016

“Propane is a cleaner, inexpensive fuel that allows the Alabama Department of Corrections to reduce its dependence on imported oil. Additionally, the state's work release center staff and inmates like the convenience of having the propane fueling stations onsite, which reduces the amount of time that would be required to fuel the vehicles at commercial gas stations.”      

Andy Farquhar, Alabama Department of Corrections Industries, former Director, Montgomery, Alabama
