how to convert 1kg of LPG to liters
hiii all
how to convert LPG from kg to liters? pls suggest.

Re: convert lpg from kg to liters
You need the density, which itself can vary depending on conditions.
Some examples; butane is approximately 0.505 kg/L and propane is about 0.575 kg/L. I could be completely off, though.

Re: convert lpg from kg to liters
additionally, LGP is comprised of a varying ratio of butane to propane (and sometimes, minute amounts of other fuels [~1%]) LPG, generally, is seasonal, with a higher percentage of butane in the fuel during the summer months, and a higher percentage of propane in the fuel during the winter months

Re: how to convert 1kg of LPG to liters
I found a page here that lists the density.
http://www.aegpl.com/htgb/0007.htm Liquid density at 15º C is 500 to 510 kg/m^{3}, that would be about 0.505 kg/L kilograms of LPG / 0.505 kg/L = liters of LPG

Re: how to convert 1kg of LPG to liters
I could be right this is what I think
LPG is a mixture of Propane and butane Gas the mixture varies. But this is how I worked it out Propane = 1.95 litres per Kilogram Butane 1.74 Litres per Kilogram. 1.95 + 1.74 = 3.69 / 2 = 1.85 6 kilo bottle of propane from calor gas costs £15.49 6 Kilos x 1.85 litres = 11.1 litres x 40.9 LPG price at filling station = 453.99 453.99 / 100 = £4.54 £15.49  £4.54 = Ripped off by £10.95 Solution buy a refillable bottle problem very expensive do not try to fill calor gas bottles the bottle needs special pressure and blow off valves which standard bottle don't have. A standard bottle is filled by weight and The ones that you can refill yourself is filled by pressure and thats my answer. Mick

is useful in suggesting 1 litre of LPG accounts for 1.8 kilo's of CO2e and 1 Kilo of LPG accounts for 3.3 kg's of CO2e  so, approx 1.82 litres of LPG to a kilo

Re: how to convert 1kg of LPG to liters
In trying to tie up solar water collector calculations I have this problem as well  so now the question is are you guys talking about about LPG in the gaseous or the liquid form when you mention litres?
I have it from Calor Gas calor.co.uk/faq/general.htm that their LPG is equivalent to 13.62 kwh/kg propane or 13.83 kwh/kg butane. From elsewhere: it may be that 1 kg of liquid = 95L of gas or 1L liquid = 250 L of gas and 95 kj/L or 24,700kj/L but is this liquid or gas litres? It is confusing. I know Calor charge me per liquid litre  and charge too much, but that's a different story. I am trying to use heat captured by solar collector to give kwh heat equivalent (got that OK) and litres LPG saved from burning hence cost saved (still working on that).

The kilogram of gas will supply the same energy as a liquid or a gas; you just have to know how big it is in those states if you wish to work by volume. Liquid propane is about. 0.507 kg/L, and liquid butane .585 kg/L. Thus, 7.01 kWh/L for liquid propane, 7.97 kWh/L for liquid butane. As a gas, propane has a molecular weight of 44 g/mol, and ideal gas has a molar volume of 22.414 L at 0 degrees C, 1 atm (the conditions for Nm^3). Thus gas density is about 1.963 kg/nm^3. 1 kg should occupy 509 L as a gas. Note that is at 0 C and varies with absolute temperature.
