If You Suspect a Gas Leak

Propane has an added odorant that smells like a skunk’s spray, rotten eggs, or a dead animal. This distinctively unpleasant smell is a safety feature of your propane system.

Do not operate lights, appliances, telephones, or cell phones—as they could create a spark, or ignition source.
