I am of the old-fashioned "turn it off at the tap" mentality with this stuff, only turn the gas one when we actually want to use the stove
(not that often with daily temps around 40 degrees here) and turn it off immediately afterwards.
There was a good post on "worst for sale
pictures" a while back where somebody had a notice by the companionway
in pretty foul language reminding themselves to turn off the gas.
But that's the thing about this sad, sad story. I have been so fixated on not blowing ourselves out of the water
, while I did not know that LPG could produce Carbon Monoxide.
I do the same thing. But over the past four years I have gone to bed
and forgotten to turn it off at least three times. Each time could have been my last. So I want to install the solenoid I have stored away so if I do forget I've at least turned it off via the solenoid. Also, my stove
doesn't have a valve at the stove
which is also a big no no.
