In high school my buddy had a truck that was powered by Propane. Propane was cheap in Western Montana, and I sure hope he held onto that vehicle today. It’s probably worth a fortune.
So what is propane?
Propane is a three-carbon alkane, normally a gas, but compressible to a liquid that is transportable. It is derived from other petroleum products during oil or natural gas processing. It is commonly used as a fuel for engines, barbecues, and home heating systems.
When sold as fuel, it is commonly known as liquified petroleum gas (LPG or LP-gas) which can be a mixture of propane along with small amounts of propylene, butane, and butylene. The odorant ethanethiol is also added so that people can easily smell the gas in case of a leak.

Automobile Manufacturers are starting to manufacture and sell propane powered vehicles. At roughly 2.50 a gallon across the country it’s a great alternative fuel.
