Propane is a naturally occurring gas composed of three carbon atoms and eight hydrogen atoms. It is created along with a variety of other hydrocarbons (such as crude oil, butane, and gasoline) by the decomposition and reaction of organic matter over long periods of time. After it is released from oil fields deep within Earth, propane is separated from other petrochemicals and refined for commercial use. Propane belongs to a class of materials known as liquefied petroleum gases (LPGs), which are known for their ability to be converted to liquid under relatively low pressures. As a liquid, propane is 270 times more compact than it is as a gas, which allows it to be easily transported and stored as a liquid until ready for use. Approximately 15 billion gal (57 billion L) of propane are consumed annually in the United States as a fuel gas. The greatest consumers are the chemical and manufacturing industries, which use propane as chemical intermediates and aerosol propellants, followed by r ...more

Any car can run on high octane fuel without modification, problems arise from cars designed to run on high octane being asked to use regular unleaded, which is 94%. LPG is stored in a liquid form because being 250x more dense than as a gas it requires less space within the car. Many manufacturers, including Renault, Citroen and Vauxhall offer LP gas cars direct from the dealership as part of the range. Other manufacturers such as Ford, Range Rover and Chrysler may not have an LPG vehicle as part of the range but will allow conversions to be carried out after manufacture.
Interestingly two of the largest nations for LPG use in vehicles are Italy and Japan, who are not oil producers. In the UK we produce in excess of 4 million tonnes per ...more
