Energy Efficient Fuel Source: Liquid Petroleum Gas

by: Meghan Terwilliger

Liquid Petroleum Gas is a byproduct of petroleum refining. It's made of hydrocarbons that are vapors, rather than liquids, at normal temperatures and pressures. It's main constituent is propane.
Barbecue grills and portable heaters run on liquid pertroleum gas. Most of the alternative fuel used in the United States. Liquid petroleum gas is safer than gasoline. it's also cheaper than gas in most places. Because this gas enters the engine as a vapor, it doesn't wash oil off cylinder walls or dilute the oil when the engine is cold, and it also doesn't put carbon particles and sulfuric acid into the oil. Everyone should switch to this energy efficient liquid petroleum gas.
