LPG (propane) Gas Conversions: Gas in kg, Litres, MJ, kWh & m³
Also Propane Gas Conversion in Pounds, Gallons, BTU, Therms & ft³
We are frequently asked about the various LPG (propane) gas conversion values. The first table shown below covers most of the common units of measure and gas bottle-cylinder sizes for Australia, including kg, litres, MJ, kWh & m³ (e.g. LPG gas conversion of kg to litres is 1kg = 1.96L).
People ask the questions in many ways and the simplest way to answer most of them is with an LPG Gas Conversion Table (or two).
How an LPG works in an engine is fundamentally the same as a petrol powered internal combustion engine. The engine block, pistons, spark plugs, ignition system, lubrication system and electricals on LPG work the same.
The two main differences in how LPG works are the fuel itself and the fuel storage and intake systems.
With an octane rating of over 100, LPG works with virtually any petrol engine.
LPG – Liquefied Petroleum Gas – is a gaseous flammable hydrocarbon fuel used for cooking, heating, hot water and vehicle fuel. LPG (propane) is also used for fuel in many commercial and agricultural heat applications.
LPG is used for hundreds, if not thousands, of applications including being employed as a propellant, refrigerant, and petrochemical feedstock.
