Re: I don't understand LPG!
Hmm, digging up lost brain cells, I'm sure that LPG stands for 'Liquified Petroleum Gas'.
Like you, I really don't know how they came up with that, but for a guess I think it has something to do with the pressure & temperature involved.
All cylinders as far as I know, untill they have had the liquid component expelled will always contain a quantity of both liquid and gaseous LPG.
These ratios are dependant on the ambient temperature outside, and if it increases above the designed amount and when a cylinder is full to overfull, the pressure relief valve will vent the gas (and sometimes the liquid) to maintain the designed pressure.
When the temperature is reduced, the cylinder then will contain more liquid than gas.
Dunno if this helps you, but I'm having a bit of a blurb, so maybe someone more knowledgeable can help!!
