: MAPP gas is a blend and burns much hotter than propane. But if your torch does not have a tip that can use MAPP, (some require an orifice or burner replacement), it will burn up due to overheating.

: : What is MAP gas and what is the difference between it and propane? Home Depot "expert" told me MAP burns hotter than propane. If so...hoe much hotter? Is it worth the extra two bucks per cylinder?

What does the abbreviation MAP mean? A blend of what? How much hotter? If you don't know then don't reply.
