How Much do you Know About Propane?

You may know that propane is an efficient alternative to electricity for powering a wide range of appliances. But here are three things you may not know:

  • When combined with air, the source of ignition for propane must be at least 940°— twice as hot as what is required to ignite gasoline.
  • Autogas is a safe and cost-effective propane-based motor fuel; it’s used for buses, fleet trucks, forklifts, tractors and lawn mowers.
  • Nontoxic propane poses no threat to soil and water; that’s why installing propane tanks (above or belowground) is not regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency.
