➜ Propane fuel is colorless, heavier than air and smells like garlic or rotten eggs. The odor is added by the

distributor so propane may smell differently as you travel and purchase propane from various distributors.

Being heavier than air it will collect in low spots and along the floor of your vehicle. If you smell propane or

your propane detector sounds, immediately get all occupants out of the vehicle and turn the manual shutoff

valve off. Wait for the propane to dissipate. Once the smell is gone, take the vehicle to a qualified repair facility to

find and fix the problem before using the propane system again. MP124
