Scary right? I was told town gas are lighter and if leaks, it will evaporates into the atmosphere but LPG is heavier and more likely to cause explosion.

However, LPG are generally stored in cylinders thus volume is limited. Whilst town gas are piped in and constant flow. What are the danger with so many underground pipes and even them running up building shafts? We should send our experts there learn from them.

Under the right conditions, 1 tank is quite enough to clear up a good part of a building.

If1 tank can clear a building, imagine a whole building shaft filled with tower gas! !
