Shrewsbury, Mass.—Knight’s Airport Limousine Service showcased its eight new clean propane autogas-powered vehicles in late October at the event, Propane Autogas: Driving Knight’s Limo to a Greener Ride. The ROUSH CleanTech Ford E-350 passenger vans will service Logan International, T.F. Green and all New England and New York airports along with private events.
Among those in attendance were Mass. State Senator Michael O. Moore and Lt. Governor Tim Murray. The vehicles will reduce Knight’s Airport Limousine Service’s carbon dioxide emissions by 1.15 million pounds in their lifetime. To keep up with refueling, Knight’s also installed an above-ground 18,000-gallon tank at its Shrewsbury facility.
"As a part of our corporate commitment to reducing emissions and providing dependable, efficient transportation options to our passengers," says Knight’s Airport Limousine Service President Michael F. Hogan, "we’ve chosen American made propane autogas to fuel our new Ford vans."
