- Running Out of Gas
Don't run out of gas. Serious safety hazards, including fire or explosion, can result
- If an appliance valve or a gas line is left open, a leak could occur when the system is recharged with propane.
- If your propane tank runs out of gas, any pilot lights on your appliances will go out. This can be extremely dangerous.
- A Leak Check is Required. In many states, a propane retailer or a qualified service technician must perform
a leak check of your propane system before turning on the gas.
