So how many of you have been through the safety training and videos and still store your tanks inside?Considering my dad was a fire chief in the local VFD and I used to work for the fire district on summer break, I've probably seen my fair share of safety videos and real world results. I don't ever recall a fire resulting from a propane tank ignition and we live in the land of crawfish boils, so they're everywhere. Not saying it's not possible, just that on the relative risk scale, it's not extremely high considering my storage location. I consider my natural gas water heater a bigger risk and it's inside my house.
We have a natural gas furnace & water heater in the garage. Those are the source of my decision to not store tanks in the garage. I've always assumed that they're a potential ignition point if I had a leaky propane tank in the garage. Have no idea how valid that assumption is but, what the hell, safety third.
I agree with you in that instance, as well. I would not store any fuel source in my garage with an NG furnace or water heater in there, probably including my car, if there are pilot lights on them!
