Methane and Propane are two gases which got from petroleum as hydrocarbons. But both are not with any adour. so Butane is used, so one can find the leakage.

For odour to detect leakage a compound called ethyl mercaptan is used.

Also referred to as simply propane or butane, is a flammable mixture of hydrocarbon gases used as a fuel in heating appliances, cooking equipment, and vehicles.

It is increasingly used as an aerosol propellant and a refrigerant, replacing chlorofluorocarbons in an effort to reduce damage to the ozone layer. When specifically used as a vehicle fuel it is often referred to as autogas.

Varieties of LPG bought and sold include mixes that are primarily propane (C3H8),

Primarily butane (C4H10) and, most commonly, mixes including both propane and butane.

In winter, the mixes contain more propane, while in summer, they contain more butane.
