Dropping our fuel cost from 20.3 to 11.4 cents/kilometer has made me one happy driver – that’s a cash saving of 8.9 cents/km or 43.7%! And so, I’m now an eco-Options Energy Hero!
I’ve became very comfortable with propane as a vehicle fuel over 20 years ago when I was a professional tow-truck driver in Vancouver. In early June 2011, when I learned my company was planning a pilot project to test propane on a diesel engine 10 bay water carrier truck, I jumped at the chance to get a lower cost fuel working in my personal vehicle. I enjoy driving a 2002 Acura MDX so much that I intend to keep it for years. I directed eco-Options to install a dual fuel system – both gasoline and propane. Since June 2011 I’ve enjoyed 14,800 trouble-free kilometers at a cost of only $1,690. Had I been running on gas only, my fuel cost would have been $3,000. That means in 8 months I saved $1,300!
