Seeing as how the VP is such a VIP, shouldn't we keep the PC on the QT? 'Cause if it leaks to the VC he could end up MIA, and then we'd all be put on KP.

But yeah, they add a mercaptan sulfur compound to LP to give it a smell.

Is the smell inside the house or out around the tank?

Either get out there and figure out which fixture is leaking, or call your LP service and pay them $300 to figure it out.

Just call somebody to look at it or switch out the tank.
