Gas cooking fuel consumption per day


Does anyone have some sources which estimate the consumption rate of LPG gas (and perhaps also other fuels) when used for cooking in various camp environments? How much should be budgeted (kg per person each day) for various conditions and fuel types?

Dear Anton

Thank you for your question on gas-cooking fuel-consumption per day.

I have passed this to our experts directly and, hopefully, you will receive a useful answer soon.

Kind regards, Leigh

Dear Anton, I do not have exact data on fuel consumption patterns but wanted to remind that many LPG ratios are getting sold outside the refugee camps.

If you find out more about this topic, please share! Best, Johanna
