What are correct combustion results for 80 to 90 percent eff. units while burning propane. Are they the same as nat gas? i know what are the proper results for nat. gas. not sure if propane would be the same, its chemical make up is different. all i can find is its perfect combustion results, not what one would find with a electronic analyzer thanks

    Natural gas: 8-10%Co2, 3.5-6.2%02
    Propane: 9-11% Co2, 3.5-6%02
    C0 should be below 50ppm on any fuel

    Those are just general rules for gas burner. I would follow what the MFG wants in their manual for a specific appliance
