What is the composition of Propane?

  • The fuel delivered in your propane tank is C3H8 which means that there are three parts carbon and 8 parts hydrogen.
  • When propane combines with oxygen (O2) during the burning process, it creates water (H2O) as a by-product.
  • Propane is clean burning, but the residual water must be properly discarded. For most appliances the water is exhausted up the vent pipe.
