Frequently Asked questions

Q 1 | Propane vs. Natural Gas: What’s the Difference?

Propane is usually more expensive than natural gas, but the same amount produces about twice as much heat. … In some areas, natural gas is more economical, and in others, propane costs less. Both types of fuel are more efficient and less expensive than electricity in many regions. When it comes to Autogas, propane is the cheaper choice when it comes to price, maintenance costs, and infrastructure.

Q 2 | Are There Safety Tips That I Should Know About Propane?

Propane (also called LPG-liquefied petroleum gas or LP Gas) is a liquid fuel stored under pressure. In most systems, propane is vaporized to a gas before it leaves the tank. Propane is odorless so manufacturers add an odorant to propane to help alert customers to propane leaks. The odorant smells like rotten eggs, a skunk’s spray or a dead animal to alert you that there may be a need for concern. For safety information, click here.

Q 3 | What do I do if I Smell Gas?

If you believe you are in immediate danger contact your local emergency responders and then contact your local propane dealer. Each individual dealer has an emergency contact in place. If your dealer did not provide your emergency contact number, reach out to them. Any other real emergencies such as an active fire you should dial 911 immediately.
