What is LPG?
LPG is Liquefied Petroleum Gas. Liquefied Petroleum Gases (LPG) are obtained by refining of crude oil and from natural gas by oil absorption or refrigerated absorption process.LP Gases are mixtures of hydrocarbons, which are gaseous at normal ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure, but can be liquefied at normal ambient temperature by application of moderate pressure.

Meanwhile, small bulk trucks distribute LPG from the storage centres to various consumers.
How efficient is LPG as an energy source?
LPG is an energy-rich fuel source with a higher calorific value per unit than other commonly used fuels, including coal, natural gas, diesel, petrol, fuel oils, and biomass-derived alcohols. This means that an LPG flame burns hotter, an advantage that can translate into higher efficiency./p>
