High Point, NC – November 28, 2017 – Thomas Built Buses has developed educational materials for fleet managers seeking information on the pros and cons of many of the fueling options available for school buses.  Dubbed “Facts About Fuels,” the Thomas Built materials present information about the cleanliness, cost-effectiveness, durability and future of diesel, propane, compressed natural gas and gasoline in an entertaining and easy to understand format. 

"Thomas Built Buses is committed to developing technologies that meet the emerging needs of our customers," said Caley Edgerly, president and CEO of Thomas Built Buses. "We also are committed to helping our customers choose the best products and, in this case, fuel type, that is best for their fleet.  Developing a fuel strategy can be a daunting task, especially with confusing and contradictory information swirling about in the industry. And, unfortunately, diesel, the number one fuel in our industry, is being overshadowed by alternative fuels.  We wanted to clear up the confusion and use facts backed by verifiable sources to shed light on the advancements of diesel fuel and how it stacks up to many of the alternatives fuels in the marketplace."

"Facts About Fuels" can be viewed on the Thomas Built website. The site features an informational video, along with an animated interactive crash course on different fueling options.  Posters and additional printed materials also will be available in the coming months. Contact your local Thomas Built dealer for a copy or for additional information.
