The specific gravity is just the density relative to water, which is 1000 kg/m, so your LPG, as a liquid, is 540 kg/m. If you mean as a liquid, just divide by that figure.

If you mean as a gas, the volume of LPG as a gas is around 270-277 (I've seen various figures) its volume as a liquid, so the gas density is around 1.95-2.0 kg/m

Question Re: LPG kg/hr to m3/hr

I have installed a gasflow refillable bottles of lpg in my motorhome and they are 2 x 11kg. When I go to the petrol station to refill, it is calculated in lts. I feel I am going through a lot more gas with this refillables.
I want to know the equivelent in lts. to kg.

It is the specific gravity 0.54 kg/L.

(That must have quite a bit of butane in the mix as straight propane is 0.51 kg/L)

Cubic meters of the evaporated gas? Propane (as sold in US and Canada) is about 1.85 kg/m. The propane/butane mix used in other countries is a bit heavier, maybe up to 2 kg/m. So, depending on gas composition 1250 to 1350 kg/h.

You need to know the density. In the US, LPG is >95% propane, and the density is 0.51 kg/L. So an 11 kg bottle should be 21.6 L.

In other countries, LPG is often a seasonal mix of propane and butane to lower the vapor pressure. The density can vary 0.54 - 0.58 kg/L, the higher density being typical of summer in hotter locations (more butane)
