Vehicle Emissions Characteristics Propane shares several emissions advantages with natural gas and has some additional ones of its own. Like natural gas, propane vehicles do not have any evaporative or running loss emissions associated with the fuel. Unburned hydrocarbons from propane are easier to oxidize in oxidation catalysts than methane, which results in low unburned hydrocarbon emissions. 26]. Being a gas, propane mixes very well with the air before entering the engine, resulting in low carbon monoxide emissions, 10 "Gasoline-equivalent" refers to equal energy in terms of gallons of gasoline.
