Safety Tips

Tip 5: Don't run out of gas!

Serious safety hazards, such as fire or explosion can result. If your storage tank gets empty or depleted, air and moisture can enter. This can cause a build-up of rust inside the tank. Rust can decrease the concentration of the odor of propane, making it harder to smell. If your propane tank runs out of gas, any pilot lights on your appliances will go out. This can be extremely dangerous if not handled properly.
