        is exactly right , i used a sniffer on my boat to check for any leaks around the fittings and tank sadly sniffer went nuts next to poly tank on hi sensitivity lol but fittings were fine and i can still detect a faint gas od0r when its been shut for awhile so i installed a solar fan to keep that gone.

          I get to the staging area and I turn it on, I then only turn it off after 5 minutes of running on plane. If I am putting along I will turn it on since you can't hear it over the engine.
