Feb. 12th, 2024 — Harrisonburg, Va. — A new state contract brought forth by James Madison University provides vehicle fleets in Virginia with new pricing on propane autogas vehicle conversion equipment, in addition to access to renewable propane autogas. Blossman Gas is the equipment and fueling partner on the contract, available to all fleets.

Autogas, the name given to propane when used as a vehicle fuel, is the third most widely used alternative fuel globally, with more than 28 million vehicles on the road worldwide. Blossman Gas is a founding member of Alliance AutoGas, a cooperative providing EPA-certified autogas vehicle conversion equipment to U.S. fleets.

“Autogas is a proven and viable solution for fleets in the commonwealth of Virginia today, and we are excited to offer this additional opportunity for reduced emissions with a renewable autogas component,” said Steve McCoy, vice president of Business Development with Blossman Gas.


With the contract, those using conventional propane autogas can purchase an up to 20% renewable autogas blend, reducing harmful emissions such as carbon and particulate matter. Nearly identical to conventional propane in terms of its chemical structure and physical properties, renewable propane solves a variety of environmental challenges in addition to providing the benefits of conventional propane. Renewable propane offers sustainability benefits through reductions in carbon intensity (CI) versus traditional fossil-based transportation fuels. CI is the amount of carbon by weight emitted per unit of energy. 

“Propane autogas is a widely available fuel used in public and private fleets in Virginia and I’m so glad to have this fuel on state contract,” said Alleyn Harned, executive director of Virginia Clean Cities at James Madison University (JMU). “It is exciting for JMU to launch a statewide contract for this renewable fuel option."
