Hocon Gas, headquartered in Shelton, Conn., displayed a 1,000-gallon propane tank on a trailer at AltWheels Fleet Day.
Hocon has two of the dispensing units, which are used “for temporary purposes,” Tim Brown, Hocon’s Autogas manager, said in a phone interview after the event. If an autogas dealer is awaiting a permit for a permanent fueling station to be installed, for example, the trailer can be used with a temporary permit. “You just plug it into a 110 outlet and the customers can get their fuel,” Brown says.
Hocon Gas itself has more than 20 propane-fueled vehicles, Brown says, including four bulk propane delivery trucks. AltWheels Fleet Day was held Oct. 2 at the Four Points by Sheraton in Norwood, Mass.—Stephen Bennett
