i have two LP tanks. No background checks.

 

Funny story.. I used to run a manufacturing operation, about 70 people. We had a big box truck, the biggest you could drive without a CDL.

 

One morning I came to work, and someone had stolen all 4 wheels and used forklift propane tanks as jack stands to support the truck.

Not sure if this tops that, but back in my firefighting days we were called to a mobile home Fire and they had a gas grill on the porch with a 20 lb tank.  While one of our rookies was pulling the line to start putting the wet stuff on the red stuff, the pressure relief on the tank let go.  Suffice it to say, there were no kinks in the hose off the truck as that rookie took off like a shot and pulled the hose two doors down.
