Overview if Gas L.P.

 The LP Gas comes from a release of natural gas. Also comes from refineries where crude oil is refined into gasoline, kerosene, diesel oil, asphalt and other petroleum products.


 Gas LP has less energy (BTU) in a liter of LPG  than in one liter of gasoline.


 Mileage therefore decreases from 10 to 12 percent.


 Some people find that the LP gas is equal or better in performance. This has to do with the condition of the engine and vehicle weight. On average expected a slight decrease in mileage. 


 The LPG is stored under pressure of 190 psi at 100 ° F at 13 psi at -20 ª F. 


 LPG has a  higher octane than any gasoline: 110 octane to 125 octane, this delimits any jingling and auto ignition. 


 Generally the LP gas is a mixture of Propane-Butane which varies according to the needs of operation: Butane gas has more calories and less pressure making its use  preferential but as it has a point higher than the boiling propane, must be combined to have more rapid availability of fuel. 


 The LP gas is odorless, colorless and tasteless. In order that a dangerous leak can be detected, it integrates a strong odor that can easily be perceived even though it poses no danger. 


 Regardless of popular belief, LPG ​​is a nontoxic gas. Generally accidents caused by LP gas not due to poisoning, but to suffocation caused by not being able to breathe oxygen. This gas can cause dizziness which may be accompanied by vomiting, which may disappear breathing fresh air. 


 LPG is heavier than air and therefore it would begin to be dangerous in a lower level (It is not recommended to do repairs in low places. Repairs should be done in open areas,  near to open windows or vented places).  In repair shops, the service area should be away from sparks occured by hammer blows or emery stone. It should be away from any place with fire.


 If fire would be originated, first of all, it must be corrected the gas leak which will automatically cease fire caused by it. 


 The power capacity is measured in kilo calories or BTU. 


 In Mexico, as a official rule, it  must be weighted in kilo-calories but as our sources of information are still only a BTU being only  theoretical references for comprehension, we are providing the data as we originally  obtained.
