Propane in the passanger compartment

For some odd reason i keep getting the idea to put Propane on my 72 Blazer, the biggest problem i am having with the idea is having the propane tank behind the backseat while the top is on. Is it a bad idea to have the tank in a closed passanger compartment.

I would say yes, it is a bad idea, got propane won't even sell it for closed cab vehicles. Mount it under the rear of the cab with a cool looking skid plate, with a trap door in the bed to dig it in and out.

Guess need to see how much room i can come up with for an under body tank. Any one know of a place to get the tanks....i don't think the typical forklift tanks will fit very well.

I know on some of the old trucks we used at TxDOT had a twin cylinder setup that was low profile and mounted under the toolbox in the bed. I bet something like that would mount under a blazer easily. There is a propane place (or used to be) in Lubbock that did retrofits and had lots of used parts for conversions. IIRC it was somewhere near I-27 and 4th street. I cant remeber the name of the place though.
