Welding and LPG

Hi guys,

Just curious if there are any precautions to take when welding on a car running LPG. Is it any different?

Thanks,

Rian

when i'm working on my car i usually just turn the gas off at the tank and run the gas out of the lines ... that way if you nick or burn the gas line, she's empty ... and hopefully no Kaboom!

ecu is a good idea as well.

it is compressed, hence the L (liquid)...and remember bigger compression means bigger bang...ever tried throwing a can of butane in a bon fire?
