TUKWILA, Wash. – The state of Washington will soon be home to one of the nation’s largest privately funded propane autogas public refueling networks, and the single largest installation of alternative fuel infrastructure in the Pacific Northwest.
 
Eleven 24-hour public refueling stations in the Puget Sound region were funded and spearheaded by Blue Star Gas, one of the leading propane fuel suppliers in the nation, and a member of the Alliance AutoGas clean vehicle conversion and refueling network.
 
The public propane autogas refueling sites will service the Pacific Northwest’s growing population of alternative fuel vehicles. 
 
The refueling stations, similar in operation to traditional gasoline filling stations, will serve more than 400 customer vehicles in the Pacific Northwest. These customers can gain access to the pumps 24/7 via a card-reading system, which also enables users to track fuel savings and miles-per-gallon usage.
 
Fleets in the area can contact a local Blue Star Gas fleet specialist for access to the stations and training on safe refueling.
 
The Blue Star Gas public refueling network first came online in October 2011 with a site installation in the University District of Seattle, which services Seattle Children’s Hospital. By July 2014, all 11 public refueling stations will be in service throughout the Puget Sound region.
