    Petrol will burn......petrol vapour will explode! ALL petrol/spirit containers are regarded as FULL, even when empty, (as are chemical tanks etc), in my mind they are much more volatile.
    LPG liquid, expands two hundred and fifty times when it comes into contact with air, and is heavier than air.
    Diesel needs a fair bit of ignition to light it.................you pays yer money and makes yer choices.:thumb:

    You need TIME to get away from danger, especially at night.

    Not something I worry about to be honest.

    I had Gas in my house and loads of wood, carpet, books, paperwork (mostly bills) and other flamable stuff. I slept upstairs.

    In my van the flammable stuff is right at the back, I sleep at the front right next to the big sliding door.

    I feel safer in the van on this count now you mention it :winky:::bigsmile:

    All in their own way as dangerous as the next.
    Just depends on the circumstances.
    For example, diesel is, in its way, far more dangers than petrol.
    Where Flammable liquids of all kinds and LPGs there is also a danger of asphyxition, as these gases / vapours are all heavier than air, so will displace oxygen and settle in low places.
    You could add to the list aerosols, perfumery product, fag lighters, etc.

    No difinitive answer.

    Dunno about the gas the gassers use::bigsmile:
