Propane – What is it Exactly?

Propane is a hydrocarbon (C3H8) and is often referred to as LP gas or liquefied petroleum gas. Propane is produced from both crude oil refining and natural gas processing. Roughly 97% of all propane used in the US is produced in North America. Propane is nontoxic, colorless, and nearly odorless.  For the purposes of safety, an identifying odor is added so the it can be readily detected in case of a leak.

Propane is an approved, clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act and the Energy Policy Act of 1992 and is one of the cleanest burning of all of the fossil fuels. Tests conducted by the United States EPA that propane-fueled vehicles produce 30% to 90% less carbon monoxide and about 50% fewer toxins and other smog-producing emissions than traditional gas engines. Propane also is nontoxic, so it’s not harmful to soil or water.
