Haiti Energy - More and more Tap-Taps are Switching to PROPANE from Gasoline

Haiti Energy Update -- More and more tap-tap owners are converting their gasoline powered taxi over to PROPANE... One of the biggest expense of a Haitian tap-tap driver is the cost of gasoline. One driver who converted his tap-tap over to PROPANE admit saving 400 gourdes per day...

While I pulled over at a Bon Repos pumping station to fill up our propane powered Sports Utility Vehicle, I noticed there was a tap-tap inline waiting...

"You use propane on your tap-tap?" I asked the driver...

"Man, it was about time ti did," he replied, "This thing is a life saver!"

"What do you mean?" I replied, "How much money are you saving by running on PROPANE instead of Gasoline?"

"Let me tell you," he replied, "I used to spend $1,000 gourdes per day on gasoline. Now, I spend $600 gourdes per day on PROPANE... That's $400 gourdes I am saving each and every day..."

He went on to explain to me that he is not only one who has converted his vehicle to propane in his tap-tap route. Many of the tap-tap in the area of Canaan are using propane.

What do you think about that?

Assuming this man goes out every day to make ends meet, he will save over 140,000 gourdes per year just by switching to propane...
