Propane, or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), is the third widest used transportation fuel in the world, following gasoline and diesel. A propane vehicle operates similarly to a gasoline or diesel vehicle by burning the gas in an internal combustion engine. Since the fuel is cleaner-burning, a propane vehicle has fewer emissions, and propane helps to reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
