Bill Whatley, who uses propane-powered lawn mowers at a golf course in Flowood, Miss., said he plans to transition all his gasoline-fueled equipment to propane. Philip Chamblee, the Mississippi Propane Gas Association's executive director, said his organization plans to have eight state insurance department vehicles run on autogas for a year to compare its cost efficiency and environmental impact with that of regular gasoline.
