a.LP gas is flammable and hazardous if handled improperly. Become aware of the characteristics before using any LP gas product.

b.LP gas is explosive under pressure, heavier than air, and settles and pools in low areas.

c.LP gas in its natural state has no odor. For your safety, an odorant is added that smells like rotten cabbage.

d.Contact with LP gas can cause freeze burns to skin.

Natural Gas (NG) Characteristics:

a.NG is flammable and hazardous if handled improperly. Become aware of the characteristics before using any NG product.

b.NG is explosive under pressure, heavier than air and settles and pools in low areas.

c.NG in its natural state has no odor. For your safety, an odorant is added that smells like rotten cabbage.
