 Portable propane tanks and your meter

 
Keep portable propane tanks away from electrical sources. We strongly recommend storing it at least three metres away from electrical sources at all times. Propane is a relatively dense gas, so any potential discharge is likely to settle near the tank— so leaks too close to electrical sources, including an electric meter or exterior outlet, pose a fire risk.
