  • ? about hydrocarbon gas

    i am thinking about starting to learning a bit about hydrocarbon gases to save money. can any one tell me what the difference between r290a and lpg is . can any one tell me why u cant just use pure lpg in a fridge all u would need is a pt chart for it. does lpg have more moister in it
    because from what i can work out it seems to work fine we tried it in a domestic fridge and ran fine for 4 years
