MFA Oil Opens Propane Autogas Fueling Station in Lebanon, Mo.
February 15, 2023
MFA Oil Company, a farmer-owned energy supply cooperative, has opened its first public propane autogas fueling dispenser. Motorists with vehicles that run on autogas will now be able to refuel at the company’s Petro-Card 24 at 22157 E. Route 66 in Lebanon, Mo.
The new autogas pump in Lebanon is the state’s first dispenser that is available 24 hours a day to the public.
“We chose to install an autogas pump in Lebanon due to its proximity to Interstate 44 and the large volume of traffic that passes through the area,” said James Greer, MFA Oil senior vice president of supply and transportation.
A growing network of 2,500 autogas stations is available for refueling across the country. MFA Oil paid for the dispenser with assistance from a Missouri Propane Education and Research Council grant and the CHS Propane-Powered Rebate Program.
Propane autogas is a clean-burning alternative vehicle fuel that reduces greenhouse gases and other harmful emissions when compared to gasoline or diesel fuel. Autogas is historically less expensive than gasoline and diesel fuel, with average savings between 30-50%. Propane-powered vehicles provide a comparable driving range to vehicles running on conventional fuels.
