FAQs About Propane
At Collingwood Fuels, we feel it is our responsibility to be not just a valuable resource for propane in the Collingwood, Ontario area, but also a company you can turn to with any questions that you might have. We recognize that propane isn’t something everyone has a vast amount of knowledge about, so we want to help you have a better understanding about it. Here are some common questions we have been asked about propane:
Why isn’t the propane tank filled to its full capacity?
Propane expands due to changes in temperature, so it is important to allow space for this to happen. By filling the tank to only 80 to 85 percent of its capacity, expansion can take place safely.
Is propane considered environmentally friendly?
Propane burns cleaner than fossil fuels such as gasoline, emits lower levels of particulates and carbon dioxide, and doesn’t produce sulfur dioxide. It also vaporizes quickly and is non-toxic. This makes propane more environmentally friendly than other options.
Where does propane come from?
Propane is a by-product of natural gas processing and petroleum refining. That is why the price for propane is directly affected by the going rate for natural gas and petroleum, as well as other factors, such as supply and demand.
Is propane flammable?
Propane is not as flammable as other fuels. For propane vapor to ignite, the propane/air mix must be between 2.2 and 9.6. Below 2.2, it is too lean to burn. Above 9.6, it is too rich to burn. If a tank were to leak, the liquid would vaporize and dissipate.
