Autogas: five questions and answers

Andrew Hopkins

1. What is autogas?

Autogas, also known as LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas), is a liquid mix of propane and butane stored under pressure, which is a by-product of oil and natural gas extraction and the refining of crude oil. Campers use LPG for heating, refrigerating and cooking. It should not be confused with natural gas (CNG – Compressed Natural Gas).
