Alternative Fuel Options at South Bay Ford Commercial in Hawthorne

Alternative Fuel Options
South Bay Ford Commercial is proud to work alongside industry leaders in LPG and CNG conversions to provide our clients with an incentivized, cost-effective solution. As a proponent of alternative fuel, your commercial fleet will experience fewer emissions from a domestic energy source and more. Below you will find just a few reasons as to why alternative fuel is right for your business.

  • Switching to alternative fuels can limit how much money is transferred offshore in an effort to support our domestic energy demands. This is attributable to the fact that most alternative fuels are available in the U.S., from U.S. sources, leading to a reduction in imported oil reliance and boosting national energy efficiency.
  • Cost of ownership is another significant advantage to using alternative fuel. When combined, the acquisition fees, fuel prices, and residual values factor greatly in determining the total ownership cost of one’s fleet. It’s no secret that investment costs for alternative fuel may be higher, but these expenses are quickly offset by lower fuel prices over time.
  • Stable alternative fuel prices will reduce price shock and additional expenditures down the road, giving you peace of mind in a bustling business environment.
In a letter from Executive Chairman, William Clay Ford, Jr., he asserts, “Ford is deeply committed to sustainability. New technologies and a more open, collaborative approach are helping us achieve breakthroughs we could only dream of in 1999, and we are eager to go further. It is an exciting time for us as we continue on our journey to build great products, a strong business and a better world.” This vision further underscores Ford’s pledge to establish a blueprint for sustainability. South Bay Ford Commercial is pleased to be at the forefront of this initiative through a pledge to outfit your fleet with the best in alt fuel parts and service.
