What is Propane? You might ask...
Well, you've come to the right place to find the answer!!!
Lets not jump a head...
Another good question...How do we get propane?
Now I know you're wondering, what about the other half of our propane supply? To answer your question, the other half of the supply either comes from petroleum refineries , or is simply imported from other places. A number of gases are taken from petroleum at refineries, but propane is the most important one. Why is that? This is because the United States imports half of the petroleum we use, but propane is the most that is separated from this imported oil.
Where is propane used? It is used in Homes, farms, businesses, and is a source of transportation fuel.
U.S propane consumption in 2010, 73.2% Chemical and industrial, 25.7% Residential and commercial, and 1.1% transportation
Coming to a conclusion!
Finally, here are some advantages of using propane, along with a few disadvantages.
On the positives side, propane can be used for many things such as, fuelling hot air balloons, to heat homes, to fuel appliances, and to heat barns and operate farm equipment.
Propane is clean-burning and leaves engines free of deposits.Also, engines that use propane, emit fewer pollutants into the air than gasoline powered engines.
On the down side: propane is a no renewable resources, so when we use it all up, it's gone. It's hard to find as a gasoline. Automobile engines have to be adjusted to propane fuel, and that can be costly. Last, there is a slight drop in miles per gallon when propane is used to fuel vehicles.
