Unless a site has a bulk fill station, propane might require to be changed every six hours of use. Propane forklifts can be harder to start and run smoothly when they are operating in freezing temperatures. In remote locations, propane fuel is not always readily available. In the next few decades, the fossil fuel cost is projected to climb dramatically.
