What's LPG?

Kinder on your pocket and the planet than more conventional fuels, LPG is available from more than 1,600 petrol stations across the UK and the number is growing.


The Science bit..

Here's the science bit. A by-product of the oil and gas industries, LPG is a natural hydrocarbon fuel made up of propane (C3H8) and butane (C4H10) its combustion properties are very simular to petrol making it an ideal replacement fuel. Unlike household gas, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is stored as a liquid and converted to vapour via an LPG system.
LPG is 250 times more dense in liquid form and, if compressed, can be turned from gas to liquid at normal temperature (15 degrees Celsius). It can easily be stored in a small container or fuel tank as a liquid and turned back into vapour.

Some interesting points..

  • First discovered in 1910 by Dr Walter Snelling investigating the evapouration of petrol.
  • LPG has higher calorific value than Petrol (+10%).
  • Carbon footprint is 20% less than petrol.
  • LPG is less dense than patrol.(0.5 compared to 0.7)
  • LPG has a high octane rating (102-108 RON)
  • LPG burns very cleanly (as in indoor forklift truck).
  • Very small amounts of particulates (soot) produced.
  • Over 15 million vehicles worldwide use LPG.
  • Other uses include: Cooking; Refrigeration; Heating and industrial uses.
