Choosing Alternative Fuel

EnterpriseSeattle and the Washington Clean Technology Alliance:

Choosing an Alternative Fuel — Frequently Un-Asked Questions and the Answers You Need to Know.  

We automatically think of aspects such as cost, environmental advantages, and energy security, but how do we add up the synergies of infrastructure expense, payload, range, supply chain, fill (or re-charge) time and many other factors?

If you want to get the right (fuel choice) answer, you have to be asking the right (use-case) questions.  Come join us for a “Lunch and Learn” co-sponsored by W.C.T.A. and enterpriseSeattle to consider the options that are here today and explore how we can bridge our way to the fuels of the future.  At the end of this session, you’ll have a better understanding of how to qualify (or disqualify) various fuels that are vying to become the answer for our nation (or your fleet’s) fueling needs.

About the Speaker:   Jeff Stewart (MBA, University of Oregon) is President of Blue Star Gas; a family owned and operated 74-year-old enterprise, which has 13 offices throughout Northern California, Oregon, and now, Washington.  Jeff is also past chairman of the National Propane Benchmarking Council and has a broad and deep understanding of alternative fuel options.  His even-handed approach to fuel choice questions will make this event a valuable tool for your understanding of alternative fuel use and choice.

Test Drives:  The consistent comment heard is, “performance with AutoGas is equal to, or slightly better than, gasoline.” Come see for yourself.  Several AutoGas vehicles are available for test-drives and a look under the hood from 10:00 a.m. to 11:50 and again after lunch from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. in the McKinstry garage.
