    Default Current cost of gasolina an LPG per gallon for your car

    Hi

    What is the current cost of;

    gasolina p/gallon or litre

    LPG per gallon / litre

    I'm trying to do a comparison between these two fuels so a similar unit of measurement ( assuming you can help) would be great

    thanks

    The real cost you would want is the cost per BTU. Propane is 91,690 BTU per gallon with 4.11 pounds per gallon, gas is about 125,000 BTU per gallon depending on its grade. However, I expect the efficiency for LPG would be slightly better since the combustion would be more complete.

    In the DR, many pick-up trucks use LPG with conversion kits.

    And taxis and many locals in their vehicles, if they can afford installation........

    Another way to put it is if you get 20MPG with gas, you're likely to get 15MPG with propane.

    There is a joke in Vermont about a guy who drives from NYC who ends up on some back road. He sees a farmer walking his cows along the road and asks him, "Excuse me do you know how far it is to St Albans?"
    "Nope"
    "Do know if this road will take me to White River Jct?"
    "Nope"
    "Can you at least get me to the interstate?"
    "Don't really know how'd ya do that..."

    --"We'll for someone who lives here, you sure don't know much!"--

    --"Maybe so, but I ain't lost, neither!"--
