Propane facts, propane is a clean fuel!

Read below for some interesting facts about propane:

  • Propane blends with isopropane to fuel a refrigerator that works on gas absorption. The mixture has a greatly reduced ozone depletion effect and successfully replaces chlorofluorocarbon and hydrofluorocarbon refrigerants. This ability makes it a great replacement as an alternative fuel in refrigerators and air conditioners.In respect to auto ignition temperature LPG, CNG, and LNG are much safer than gasoline or diesel because the auto ignition temperature is much higher.
  • Propane is an approved, alternative clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act as well as the National Energy Policy Act of 1992.
  • Propane is a hydrocarbon and is sometimes referred to as liquefied petroleum gas, LP-gas or LPG. Propane is produced from both natural gas processing and crude oil refining.
  • More than 14 million families use propane to fuel their furnaces, water heaters, air conditioners, outdoor grills, fire places, dryers, and ranges.
  • Propane is used on 865,000 U.S. farms for irrigation pumps, grain dryers, standby generators, and other farm equipment. It is an essential fuel for crop drying, flame cultivation, fruit ripening, space and water heating, and food refrigeration.
  • Propane is easy to transport and can be used in areas beyond the natural gas mains. Because it is 270 times more compact as a liquid than as a gas, it is economical to store and transport as a liquid.
  • Millions choose this clean-burning fuel for bus, taxi, delivery, and other fleets to minimize air pollution in metropolitan areas.
  • Propane is one of the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels.
  • Because propane is virtually odorless and colorless in its natural state, a commercial odorant is added so propane can be detected if it leaks from its container.
  • If liquid propane leaks, it doesn’t puddle but instead vaporizes and dissipates into the air.
  • Neither the process by which propane is produced nor the combustion of propane gas produces significant acid rain contaminants.
  • By using propane gas instead of electricity, consumers can cut emissions and help preserve the environment.

Propane Service in Big Sur, CA

“We want to make sure that our customers in Big Sur felt that they made the right choice in choosing Dassel’s Petroleum as their propane supplier.” said Jim Dassel, President of Dassel’s Petroleum.  Dassel’s was pleased to hear the Cal Trans update that the Highway 1 at Rocky Creek in Big Sur is open to one-way directed traffic on Wednesday, April 20, 2011.  Dassel’s used a number of strategies to deliver fuel to our Big Sur customers in the face of the April 2011 Highway 1 road closure.  

Delivering propane to customers who were isolated by the closure is very important to Dassel’s.  He added, “We employed a number of methods of reaching out to these customers to let them know we were doing all that was humanly possible to fulfill their propane needs.” 

Dassel’s is currently keeping in close touch with Cal Trans updates on the status of the  Highway 1 road repair in order to organize the most efficient fuel delivery possible.  “We have been successful in keeping our Big Sur accounts supplied with propane due to the great interpersonal relationships our dispatchers have with our propane customers.”  Dassel noted, “We are proud of our employees’ ability to offer organized and efficient service.”

We at Dassel’s thank all of our customers for their business; we appreciate the opportunity to serve you!
