convert kg in lpg (liquid) to cubic meters
Hi I am from india, we have a gas bank with liquid lpg cylinders (one cylinder is 33.3 kg), a low meter (Itron make) is installed which shows the readings in cubic meter (after vapouriser), if one kg of the liquid lpg costs 60.6 (indian rupees), what is the cost of lpg per cubic meter????

1 L of liquid propane is about 0.51 kg, and when vaporized, produces about 277 L, (0.277 m³) of gas 1 kg produces about 0.543 m³ of gas, so cost is 60 rupees/0.543 m³ or 110.5 rupees/m³

conversion factor in an LPG meter (m3)
Hi Sameer here,
Thank you for your valuable reply regarding the conversion of lpg from cubic meter to kg. I have a doubt again for the flow meter that is installed. The flow meter is of ITRON make, (D76161 Karlsruhe, M10) installed after the vapouriser showing the readings directly in cubic meter. Does it have any multiplying factor? One conversion is shown on the meter that shows  V = 0.59 dm3 (its cube, raise to 3). I am not able to understand this. Please suggest.

So what your saying is if I have a 50 kilo tank it contains 25.5 liters of gas so why is the tank so big

You have it backwards 50 kg divided by 0.51 kg/L is 98 L.

Re: convert kg in lpg (liquid) to cubic meters
1 Litre of liquid Propane produces 0.277 m3 of vapour But at what pressure? Is it at atmospheric pressure  or  operating pressure for LPG ie, 2.75Kpa ?

The 2.75 kPa is a "gauge pressure" that is, above atmospheric. But your flow device is likely calibrated at operating pressure to indicate the equivalent volume at atmospheric pressure. Absolute operating pressure is only about 3.7% higher anyway.
