"Tom Wurdack’s recent visit to Midway Ford Truck Center just south of Worlds of Fun wasn’t to see the rows of gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles that are the dealership’s big sellers.
"The fleet manager for Lenexa-based Renzenberger Inc. was interested in something a bit different: a van that would emit less pollution, cost less to maintain and have lower fuel costs — using propane.
"Under a Ford-approved program, the dealership refits new trucks and vans to use propane. And Renzenberger, which transports railroad workers in 20 states, was intrigued by the potential for its fleet of 1,200 vehicles.'We’re going to at least try a handful; we owe it to ourselves and the environment,' Wurdack said."
