Quality

LPG is a colourless gas. LPG is not poisonous. However, at the time of production, Ethyl mercaptan (a chemical compound) is added to it so as to give the now-familiar foul smell for easy detection of gas in the air, in case of any leakage. Even very small quantities of gas can be detected by this smell.

Safety

Since LPG is almost twice the weight of the air it tends to settle down at floor level, particularly in depressions. Hence, care has to be taken in placing the gas installations in the house. Also, the fact that 1 cc. of liquid LPG multiplies into about 250 cc. of gaseous LPG helps it spread very rapidly in the atmosphere. Hence, if a gas cylinder leaks, it should be immediately removed to an open area.
