Propane or butane?

Both are two very similar gases, both used widely for fuel, especially for heating fuel. Although proponents of each gas hold theirs to be the superior gas for a number of reasons, each have benefits and disadvantages. Ultimately, their similarities outweigh their differences, and the choice of which one to use is largely a matter of personal taste of which gas fits a specific need best.

On a per-volume basis, butane is a more efficient fuel than propane, by around 12%. This means that a similar amount of butane and propane will yield more energy for the butane. For many backpackers, especially those trying to pack as lightly as possible, this 12% advantage makes butane the ideal fuel. Coupled with the slight price difference, butane often wins in a head-to-head comparison.

On the other hand, propane has a lower boiling point than butane, and is stored at a higher pressure point. This means that propane is much better equipped to deal with the elements and brutal weather, making it a superior choice for long-term storage outside. It also means those hiking in especially rough environments are more likely to choose propane. Butane is not recommended for storage in anything below freezing, so anyone camping in the snow or freezing environments is much more likely to take along propane canisters.
