There is, and you would find if you hooked an lpg stove to natural gas that is would barely burn... To make it burn you would have to hog out the gas jets that shoot the gas into the mixing chamber, what ever it is called, below the burners. And that is about what I know on the subject..

@rakesh kumar,
There is a comparison on wiki.

LPG has a higher calorific value (94 MJ/m3 equivalent to 26.1kWh/m³) than natural gas (methane) (38 MJ/m3 equivalent to 10.6 kWh/m3), which means that LPG cannot simply be substituted for natural gas. In order to allow the use of the same burner controls and to provide for similar combustion characteristics, LPG can be mixed with air to produce a synthetic natural gas (SNG) that can be easily substituted.
