What is Propane?
Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) consists mainly of propane, propylene, butane, and butylene in various mixtures. However, for all fuels in the United States, the mixture is mainly propane. It is produced as a by-product of natural gas processing and petroleum refining. The components of LPG are gases at normal temperatures and pressures.
Chemical Properties: LPG, like natural gas and unlike gasoline, is a simple mixture of hydrocarbons, mainly propane/propylene (C3S) and butane/butylene (C4S).

Propane Uses
In the home
Propane is used to heat and cool homes, heat water, cook, refrigerate, dry clothes, barbeque, for lighting, or relaxation like sitting in front of a gas fireplace.

In the vehicle
Propane can be used to fuel your vehicle. According to the U.S. Department of Energy's Alternative Fuels Data Center, more than 350,000 vehicles in the United States are running on propane.
The AFDC documents 4,175 public propane refueling stations (more than three times as many as any other alternative fuel), and the industry estimates range to 10,000 or more.
Propane vehicles also offer the best combination of durability, reliability, and driving range. Plus its low pollution characteristics make it an optimal choice friendly source of fuel for our environment.

For Recreational Use
Since propane is portable and clean burning, it is used by recreational vehicle owners and campers to light gas grills, power RV appliances, outdoor gas lights, and generators.
But you don't have to own an RV to reap the benefits of propane. Propane can be used at the house to heat swimming pools, saunas, patios, and whirlpools.

On the Farm
Propane is used on approximately 660,000 farms to perform tasks in a wide range of agricultural applications like crop drying, flame cultivation, fruit ripening, space heating animal houses/orchards/nurseries, refrigeration of foods, and powering farm equipment.

For Commercial and Industrial Use
There are over 1 million commercial establishments, such as hotels and restuarants, that rely on propane for much of the same reason as a homeowner. More than 350,000 industrial sites rely on it for space heating, brazing, soldering, cutting, heat treating, annealing, vulcanizing, and many other uses. Petrochemical industries use propane in the manufacture of plastics.
