What is LPG?

LP Gas (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a combination of gases such as Propane, Butane, Butadiene, Butylene, Propylene and Isobutylene. The Propane and Butane are the most common.
In normal conditions LPG is a gas, but it transforms into a liquid if the pressure is higher than 2 bars.
LPG is gained from the extraction of petroleum and natural gas. It is also known as a by-product of crude oil refining. LPG gas is normally stored under pressure in steel or aluminum bottles, because in normal conditions it evaporates.

LPG have more than 1000 applications. It could be used for recreational purposes, in commercial business and obviously in households for heating, cooking or hot water. The history of using an LPG as a fuel started in 1800. Nowadays, not only are running LPG gas vehicles the cheaper alternative for those who want to save money, but also they pollute less the environment in comparison with petrol ones. Burning LPG are known to not produce carbon residues. As a result, engine oil in vehicles converted to LPG remains clear what contributes to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
