Safety is extremely important! It you smell propane, leave the area immediately! Call a certified propane service technician or 911 for help from a neighbor's home or other nearby building away from the gas leak.
Fact #1: Propane vapor is heavier than air, which means that propane vapor will disperse throughout the room and the concentration will tend to be greater in lower areas such as ditches and basements.
Fact #2: Pressure in a propane tank of any size can increase more than 50 psi over the course of a day. This propane pressure must be reduced and regulated for use in an appliance. To reduce the line pressure, regulators decrease the gas vapor pressure to the lower and constant pressure required by the appliances.
