I keep one of these pocket sized detectors in my toolbox and have used it a lot for checking natural and propane gas line and appliance installations for leaks. It is priced low and is very sensitive.
It is a bit of a pain to use compared to the more expensive ones because you have to hold your thumb down on the test button while checking.
It does run a self test but I always make sure it is working before I start by testing it with an unlit stove burner or unlit propane torch.
I paid like $30 a few years ago. You can buy on Amazon
but I have seen it cheaper:
