Propane is a diverse fuel that is delivered to homes and businesses and is also known as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), which is compressed and stored as a liquid.  It is nontoxic, colorless, and virtually odorless.  An odor is added so it can be detected in the unlikely event that it leaks.  Propane is used for home heating, cooking, and for hot water.  Other uses include fueling forklifts, lawn mowers, and generators. However, its applications are rapidly growing due to new technology developments.  Propane is primarily a byproduct of domestic natural gas processing and from crude oil refinement.
