propane generator setbacks
I bought a standby generator that runs on propane.
I can't find the setback requirements and I've looked everywhere:
1. How many feet away from my propane tank should the generator sit?
2. How many feet away from my house must the generator sit?
3. How many feet away from my property line?
I have tried look at state and county codes without luck (I live in a rural, county area). Neither the electrician nor the propane installer knows for sure.
I'll buy you a six-pack of quality beer if you can provide the right answer!

Re: propane generator setbacks
Save your beer. Go ask the retailer and the manufacturer. They are the "stream of commerce" and you would have a cause of action against either or both of them if they did not give you reasonable instructions as to how far away to place the propane generator from the tank and the house.
Long story short - if you can't find placement instructions in the materials that came with the generator, WRITE to the store and the maker and ask.
They will tell you. They would vastly rather tell you than get sued if you misunderstood the directions.
