propane has ~73% of the BTU of gasoline/gal

For example, conventional gasoline has an energy content of 116,090 Btus per gallon, while propane has an energy content of 84,250 Btus per gallon. As such, 1.38 gallons of propane has the same amount of energy as one gallon of conventional gasoline.

I'm sure Propane 'cans' are easily pissanted!
Warm months I can only get 4.2 gallons of propane into a 4.6 gallon 'can'. That's 84% times the above 73% yields 61% 'can' for 'can'.
