No, propane burns at 2500btu while natural gas burns at only 1012btu. Propane burns over 2 times hotter than natural gas.

Switch from natural gas to propane side burner on grill Can i switch a natural gas burner over to use propane?

this can be done but its not as simply as just hooking it up. you will need to change the manifold which is not always readily available. depending upon the manufacturer of the grill, you will likely need to order an L.P. (Propane) manifold directly from the manufacturer. Most propane distributors will convert natural gas appliances to LP for a modest fee. It is a matter of changing orifice sizes to let less gas into the appliance. Since propane burns about 4 times hotter than gas, an orifice which is about half the diameter is used. We had all of our gas appliances, dryer, stove, BBQ, converted when we moved from a location with natural gas to propane.

How do you convert a natural gas kitchen range to propane?

The conversion of a natural gas appliance for use with propane involves replacing the jets that regulate the rate of flow of the fuel. Natural gas and propane have different abilities to deliver heat energy when they burn. Propane, a product of petrochemical refining, has more heat energy per cubic foot, about 13.8kWh, than does natural gas, a petroleum gas that is extracted directly from the ground, and has about 10.8kWh of energy per cubic foot. What that means in this case is that the jets will have to be replaces with ones that have a smaller hole in them. This allows the burners to deliver the same performance with propane as they did with natural gas. IMPORTANT! Failure to replace the jets with the proper ones for the new fuel will cause the range to run hotter than its designers engineered it for! Don't fool around with this one. A fire could cost you the structure in which the range is operated if you don't do things right. Of course that wouldn't matter much to you if you were unfortunate enough to be inside when it burned down. A word to the wise is sufficient. Call your propane supplier and get the straight scoop. They're the experts.

Why do low mass stars live longer than high mass stars?

The large a star is the more gravity it has and the hotter it becomes. The hotter the star becomes the faster that it's fuels/gasses will burn, this will cause it to burn out faster than smaller stars which burn more slowly.
