If I remember correctly i-butane is slightly higher pressure at room temperature than n -butane 45 psi vs 30 psi at room temperature. They buran at the same temperature for the same air/fuel ratio. The higher pressure would result is more fuel flow for the same orfice size. Your stove should have a control valve so it should not matter. Nost lighters and other things that say butane are actuall isobutane because it produces higher pressure and the lighter will function better at cold temperatrues. Your stove likely used isobutane any way. Propane is much higher pressure so don't simply substute propane for butane usless the device is made for propane as well.

What is the hottest burning temperature?

really, infinity. this is because there are a few of the elements that haven't been discovered yet, so there for haven't been studied yet. Their burning point could be negative infinity, or positive infinity. so there for, the hottest burning temperature is infinity.

What does LPG stand for and why do you do it?

Liquid Propane Gas (Liquified petroleum gas, LP Gas, LPG, GPL, autogas) is a clean-burning flammable mixture of hydrocarbon gases used for fuel in vehicles and heating appliances. It is made by mixing propane with butane, in varying amounts, depending on the season. It is also used as an aerosol propellant and refrigerant, in an effort to reduce damage to our dwindling ozone layer.As a fuel, the liquefied form is easier to dispense and store than a high-pressure gas would be, and as a propellant, it does not affect the ozone layer as chlorofluorocarbons would.See the link below for more info:
