Re: Propane

No I did not ever deliver it but my Grandfather and Grandmother used Propane until the natural gas main came through their area. I used Propane with my Bar-B-Q in the back yard. You had to be very careful because if you got a leak it it is heavier than air and would go under your house or down into your basement and soon you would have a big BANG.

my grandfather did, not screaming
like the other people in his car.

So, Larry, did you deliver Butane or Propane? ;^)

In Kansas you must bury the Butane Tank or it would freeze solid in
the winter time. When Propane came along Butane lost its popularity
because Propane did not freeze and the tank could be left sitting on
top of the ground.

My parents did not raise
any stupid children. They
sent the ten of us to the
neighbors to play and then
moved. They raised the four
of us that found them.

When I was a young adult (back in the early 70's) I was told in
answer to my question as to why so many old butane tanks found in
our area was that years earlier butane was a popular bottled gas,
more so than propane.Propane's later arrival and eventual dominance
obsoleted butane and butane distributorship.

Would propane have been
used as a fuel in rural Kansas at that time?
Hello Jared,

From a quick web search, it looks like the Propane Marketers
Association of Kansas was founded in 1942.

Hope this is helpful,
