As an alternative fuel source, propane autogas enjoys the longest driving range of any optional alternative fuel product, with no tradeoffs in power and drivability. The system engineered for the S2G in particular is the most advanced liquid propane injection system currently on the market today. It’s EPA and CARB certified, and it’s less expensive to operate, due to the lower cost of fuel and fewer associated maintenance costs from this efficient fuel source. Right now, many Federal and state incentives encourage the use of propane autogas, and there are already more than 2,600 LPG fueling stations nationwide.
One gallon of propane autogas generally costs 40 percent less than a gallon of gasoline, so switching fuels to autogas can save fleets thousands of dollars annually over gasoline or diesel. And, beyond the clear advantages of being a Freightliner Custom Chassis product, the S2G truck offers savings in a number of dimensions. The integrated Liquid Propane Injection (LPI) system lowers operational costs and reduces emissions, all while maintaining the payload capacity and performance offered by conventional fuels. Savings without compromise is the S2G value proposition.
Federal & State Offsets
In addition to the fuel and emissions savings of the S2G truck, there are Federal and State incentives that can make the switch to LPI power even more attractive. Currently, there are more than 110 incentives offered by states to promote more environment-friendly and energy-efficient transportation that runs on propane autogas. Incentives include grant programs, loan programs, leasing programs, tax incentives and credits, rebate programs and exemptions.

Not only does the fuel efficiency of the S2G truck deliver more profit to your bottom line, so does the lower maintenance costs of the S2G and its Liquid Propane Injection (LPI) system. The S2G truck is designed to keep drivers on the road longer with less maintenance using the proven FCCC S2 chassis, known for its durability, reliability, maneuverability and payload capacity. Utilizing this popular chassis also increases the accessibility and availability of parts across our 450+ nationwide dealer service centers.
