Propane's Pleasures & Perils
"At this point we realized that it had been carbon monoxide that had almost
killed us, but we still thought that a propane leak had set off the alarm.
Later that day, I called the Xintex Corporation for information about their
fume detectors. I learned that CO alone would set off my propane alarm, but
not until approximately lethal levels of CO - perhaps 3,000 ppm. So now our
problem had been relabeled as a carbon monoxide problem rather than a
propane leak, even though it was the Xintex propane detector that had
awakened me and probably saved all of us from dying in our sleep."
