About LPG - FAQ

What is LPG?

Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a commonly-used, multi-purpose fuel.

While in other parts of the world, LPG is typically a mix of propane, butane, ethane, and pentane, in Australia LPG is 100% pressurised propane gas. Most home appliances can run on either LPG or natural gas, so it’s important to know which your home is set up for, as they cannot be used interchangeably.

LPG can be used for everything from BBQs, to cooking, to hot water and heating. Petrol cars can even be converted into LPG, which is a cheaper fuel alternative.

How Long Does 45kg LPG Last?

The most common Origin LPG order is for one or two 45kg gas bottles, as they can either be regularly refilled or exchanged as needed.

However long your 45kg LPG gas bottle lasts depends entirely on how you use it.

According to LPG Provider ElGas a single 45kg LPG gas bottle could last between 22 and 489 days.

A 45kg gas bottle will last 244 days based on a 9 MJ cooktop burner used for 60 minutes per day. A 45kg gas bottle (45 kg LPG cylinder) lasts 44 days fueling a 25 MJ Gas Fireplace used for 2 hours per day.

 

How Much is a Bottle of Gas from Origin?

A bottle of Origin LPG gas varies in price depending on the size and whether it’s a refill or exchange.

Typically, a 45kg bottle of Origin LPG will cost you between $140 and $200 per bottle, depending on your location. A typical Origin LPG refill will cost between $1 and $3 per litre. There is also an annual equipment fee you will need to pay, which generally starts around $46 per year.

What is an LPG Equipment Fee?

An LPG Equipment Fee helps cover the cost of your LPG cylinder or gas bottle and includes the cost of purchase, testing, maintenance, and replacement. Your LPG Equipment Fee is usually invoiced annually and charged separately from your LPG usage.
