Show Notes

Alternative fuels are on the top of many fleet managers’ minds these days. Fleets are increasingly exploring new ways to get the job done while remaining operationally efficient, cost effective and sustainable.

As a result, many managers are introducing a mix of electric, hydrogen, and natural gas-powered vehicles into their fleets to work alongside traditional gas and diesel ICEVs. Other managers might be more apprehensive to take the leap into unchartered territory, especially if it risks compromising fleet efficiency.

To compare different fuels, we can look at their gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE). This is the amount of fuel needed to equal the same amount of energy contained in one gallon of gasoline. Something to keep in mind, however, is that fuels have varying efficiency and experience loss of energy from the point of fueling to powering the vehicle in motion.

In today’s episode, I wanted to discuss how these different fuels perform in terms of GGE, operational efficiency and cost. Let’s dig in.
