In 1866, Rains rode a mule to Austin, Texas in order to introduce the bill that would later establish Rains County. Emory Rains is also the namesake of Emory, Texas.

Save on Fuel: Propane is a highly efficient fuel source and costs approximately 40% less than gasoline fueled fleet, and 20% less than diesel fueled fleet.
Save on Maintenance: Gasoline fueled engines have far more soot and acids left over after combustion. The carbon and acid buildup contributes to the breakdown of motor oil. After the motor oil is compromised, your engine undergoes more wear. This leads to increased maintenance cost. However, propane burns clean, which allows your motor oil to operate with maximum efficiency.
Reduce Emissions: Propane is a clean fuel listed in both the 1990 Clean Air Act and the Energy Policy Act of 1992. Propane is non-toxic and produces up to 70% fewer emissions than gasoline engines. Many newer propane fueled vehicles are EPA certified as meeting the Ultra Low Emission Vehicle standard.
