You may know that propane is a fuel that produces far fewer emissions than gasoline. It also offers savings of 30% to 50% compared to gasoline. But did you know it’s ideal fuel for small engines and lawn mowers?
Propane is efficient and clean-burning, giving off 20% less carbon monoxide, 40% less nitrogen oxides and 10% less carbon dioxide than gasoline.
In addition to being less expensive, propane puts less wear on small engines and lawnmowers, increasing equipment life and reducing the need for repairs.
And don’t discount the value of operating equipment with an eco-friendly, “green” fuel.
Whether you’re a homeowner or a landscaper, you may be interested in propane-fueled small engines to reduce your costs and your carbon footprint.
If you’re still using gasoline for your small engines, you could save money with propane. Unlike gasoline, you do not have to pay a fuel tax when you purchase propane. 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!
