Likewise, what are the advantages of using LPG?

LPG is an economical fuel source. It burns readily and gives off instant heat. The flame is visible and its size is easily controllable to meet your heating needs. LPG burns very efficiently, with very low combustion emissions and does not create black smoke.

Is there a difference between propane and LPG?

Propane is LPG but not all LPG is propane. LPG – Liquefied Petroleum Gas – is flammable hydrocarbon gas liquefied through pressurisation. Propane is classified as LPG, along with butane, isobutane and mixtures of these gases. LPG is frequently used for fuel in heating, cooking, hot water and vehicles.

How LPG is liquefied?

Normally, the gas is stored in liquid form under pressure in a steel container, cylinder or tank. The pressure inside the container will depend on the type of LPG (commercial butane or commercial propane) and the outside temperature. When you start using LPG, some of the pressure in the container is released.
