Life’s better with propane

What is propane?

Propane — sometimes known as liquefied petroleum gas, or LPG — is a gas normally compressed and stored as a liquid. It is nontoxic, colorless, and virtually odorless but had an added identifying odor so it can be detected. Propane is most commonly used for space and water heating, for cooking, and as fuel for engine applications such as forklifts. And, its applications are rapidly growing due to new technology developments. When used as vehicle fuel, propane is known as propane autogas.
