You know propane fuels buses and farm vehicles, and even some cars you pass on the street. But here are some things you may not know about propane autogas, courtesy of the Alternative Fuels Data Center.

There are different kinds of propane vehicles. You can either buy a car meant to run on propane or convert one designed to run on gasoline. If you’ve purchased a vehicle designed to use propane, it can either be dedicated, meaning it only runs on propane, or bi-fuel, meaning it can run on propane or gasoline.
