How does propane burn hotter with fewer BTU than gas?

Had this conversation with my brother today and everything I have found shows I was wrong and propane has a higher flame temperature than gasoline. Came up because he was talking about sweepers in the warehouse where he works ran much hotter than if they were gas powered. How is this possible? From what I have found 1 gallon of gasoline has 125000BTU and 1 gallon of propane has 91700BTU.
