About Propane

Propane is a hydrocarbon fuel derived from the processing of natural gas and crude oil. It is unique because when under pressure it is a liquid, and easily transported, but when the pressure is released it expands 270 times to provide a clean-burning gas that, in many cases, is interchangeable with natural gas.
