Limousine Livery is Miles Ahead in the Road of Sustainability

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

  Limousine Livery is Miles Ahead in the Road of Sustainability with New Partnership
                         with Southeast Propane Autogas Development Program

New Orleans, LA (April 26, 2011)—For over 25 years, Limousine Livery has maintained their reputation for excellence in chauffeured transportation services, while at the same time, striving for supporting their customers desire to minimize their impact on the environment by incorporating leading environmental practices into that level of excellence.

As a long-standing New Orleans area based business, in addition to being a member of Limousine Environmental Action Partnership (LEAP), no one knows the impact of environmental choices more than Limousine Livery. Especially in light of the devastating economic and environmental impact of last year’s oil disaster in the Gulf Coast, Limousine Livery’s commitment to creating a more positive footprint, has been further enhanced by their partnering with the DOE-funded Southeast Propane Autogas Development Program. As part of this partnership, Limousine Livery will be converting 20 Lincoln Town Cars to propane autogas, a clean-burning, American-made fuel that lowers greenhouse gas emissions and operating costs simultaneously.

“Limo Livery customers enjoy knowing they’re riding in green vehicles, and because propane autogas is 90 percent domestically produced, you can also feel good knowing you’re reducing U.S. dependence on foreign oil,” says Christy Dirks, President and owner of Limousine Livery. “For any fleet that wants to reduce fuel costs, propane autogas is the smartest fuel choice you can make.”
This partnership will allow Limousine Livery customers more cost effective, eco-options in reducing the impact of their transportation choices for their special events, such as weddings, as well as their corporate events, on the environment.

A popular and proven alternative fuel in the world, propane autogas has just started catching on in the U.S, which is currently home to less than 2 percent of the world’s 15 million autogas vehicles. Autogas costs around $1-per-gallon less than gasoline, which makes it an even more attractive option as gas prices continue to skyrocket.

With this partnership with Autogas Development Program, Limousine Livery is able to:

  • Reduce environmental impact. With lower on-site emissions, Limousine Livery will produce significantly less emissions than traditional gasoline, diesel or even electric vehicles by their conversion to propane fueled vehicles.
  • Reduce Dependence on Foreign Oil. Because more than 90 percent of propane autogas is domestically produced, Limousine Livery’s fleet helps reduce foreign oil dependence, create jobs and foster a green economy.
  • Reduce Cost of Operations. Because propane autogas less expensive than gasoline, the cost of implementing autogas fueling infrastructure and vehicle propane systems are significantly lower than other alternative fuel options.
  • Increase Safety. Autogas tanks actually help reinforce vehicle structure, and autogas is nontoxic, nonpoisonous and insoluble in water, unlike gasoline, diesel, methanol and ethanol, offering passengers increased safety and greater comfort.
